feel so bad...

was busy strapping A into her chair this morning while i put F next to me on the sofa. she pushed against the sofa with her feet and fell off and banged her head. was hysterical screaming (her & me)! rang nhs direct who asked a series of questions and were satisfied she was OK but said to get her checked over by GP. Dr said she was fine and seemed alert, not sleepy etc. the poor thing has a big egg on her head which will probably bruise.
just feel so stupid putting her on the sofa knowing how wriggly they are.

we've all been there done that, and vow never to do it again

and then comes the time that they crawl up onto the sofa themselves and throw themselves at the coffee table gashing their forehead open necessitating a trip to A&E to get an x-ray and the wound super-glued back together..... or is that just me? :snigger:

Yep - it happens to most kids at one time or another - C fell off the bed a number of times, my cousin's little one fell off the bed and fractured his skull (3 days in hospital - fortunately no surgery needed and no long-term damage)
It sounds terrible but it is God's own truth - this may be the first fall off furniture but it sure as Hell won't be the last...

I dropped Mooch! Yes I dropped her and turned my back on her when she was sitting on the cot top changer. We all do it honey, it normal. And to have twins who have got to this age and not done it before is nothing short of a miracle.

My friend locked her son in the car outside Asda and was hysterical, he was only a baby and was blissfully asleep at the time and didnt have a clue what was going on.

She had to call the police and they did the old coathanger trick to undo the window. My friend was so upset, she's called me for support so I went straight down.

Dont blame yourself for what has happened, we've all done something along these lines and we know we wouldnt do anything to harm our little ones intentionally.
