OMG i am so upset. I had my 4 week old baby in his mosses basket taking him from the house to the car and i tried putting the basket in the back of the car and the handle slipped and my newborn baby rolled out onto the pavement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He had lots of blankets on so he didn't hurt himself thank god! I am soooo stupid i cant believe that just happened... :( I picked him up and cuddled him, checked him over and nothing has happened but i feel terrible! I put him in his car seat and am now home... I feel so bad i cant believe that just happened!
I dropped my newborn baby!!!!!!!!!!!
Those things happen. Glad you are both ok.
What kind of car seat do you have?
I always keep the car seat in the house so its warm. I put her in there, strap her and then in the car carrying her in the car seat.
I have a newborn maxicosi car seat... I will never do that again! Next time i will take the baby from the house in the car seat!!!! I was taking him from his dads house and needed to take the basket home so instead of taking the baby out of the basket i just took the baby in the basket! Never again! lesson definately learned! I feel sooooooo bad seriously!
Aww! Glad he is OK. I think a lot of mamas have had some incident or another. With my second, I had her on the "my best friend" pillow and a friend was visiting. I got all excited talking to my friend and the baby went flipping off the pillow onto a hard book next to me on the bed. She cried, and my friend high-tailed it out of there. lol! But she was fine. I felt so careless. But stuff happens. We all are just doing our best. Hugs!
Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeah, although I am still that mother with our family doctor (Sweet merciful Mother I owe his nurse some flowers... with cruise tickets attached!), and the first time mine hit the floor I was on that phone before she was done crying, and I am fairly certain I was in a register only dogs could hear. It does happen. I am finally starting to feel like a real mother because now when I hear the sound of skull + hard surface, I announce "Well, that was a skull." as I move, but not run, towards Little Miss.
What I'm saying is, I'm sorry that happened, of course be careful with yourself and with him, and we've all been there. It gets better. Well... they get bigger and start "dropping" themselves. It's exciting! Hang in there. Make sure you have people that are there for you.
We've all been there! It's such a shock and you replay it over and over but your baby was fine and all's ok. They are remarkably resilient and before you know it he'll be flinging himself around.
When my daughter had a wobbly tooth once, I was helping her take her jumper off and it was stuck so I just yanked it. She screamed and her tooth went flying across the room, the jumper had been caught on it and just pulled it out, blood everywhere. She's 12 now and still tells people about the time mommy pulled her tooth out.
Congratulations on going 4 weeks without an accident! ;)
Being a mom to a baby is a very demanding job and a logistical nightmare, especially when leaving the house... We've all been there.
When I see things like that happen, I feel worse for the mom than the baby... babies don't even know what happened and the moms are completely traumatized.
this will not be the last time :)
it happens to everyone at some point or another. please be gentle with yourself.
just wait until your lo starts crawling/pulling up/walking and you will become veeeery familiar with the sound of *THUMP* followed by a cry.
or wait until you have more and you will start to think that babies are born so tough simply because siblings exist.
Lugging a car seat around can be really tough on your body.
You don't have to carry your baby in anything. You can just carry the baby. If you have stuff to put in the car (Moses basket, diaper bag, etc), you could ask someone to help you load the car or make more than one trip yourself.
