I dropped my newborn baby!!!!!!!!!!! - Page 2

post #21 of 29
Oh, poor mama! It happens to the best of us, I promise!

When my first baby was 3 months old, I left him on the bed for just a second and he rolled over for the very first time -- right off the bed. I was convinced he must have hit his head on the night stand on the way down, too, although I can't remember why I thought that. I FREAKED. I called my grandfather (who was a former football coach, and therefore knows quite a bit about head injuries). He proclaimed DS to be perfectly fine, but I still insisted on taking him to the pediatrician, who also proclaimed DS to be perfectly fine. He's 11 now, and a totally healthy, gifted child.

Another time, when my oldest DD was 5, she and I were napping on the couch together and... I don't know if I was having a nightmare, or I had a leg spasm, or what, but I seriously kicked her off the couch in my sleep! My leg just shot out and she went flying! I felt so horrible! She cried for a second, and then laughed because she couldn't believe that happened! She still laughs at me about that.

Aww thank u thank u for making me feel better! It's so comforting to know I'm not alone. I can't get the image of her lying on the ground out of my head. It's only been a day though so it will get better. She has no scratches or swelling on her head. It's amazing! God definitely cushions our babies falls:-)

My partner dropped our son when he was about that age. He was bending down with the baby in a cradle hold to get something off the ground and somehow the baby rolled right off of his arm and fell about three feet! We were both terrified and my partner was REALLY upset but he seems to be ok so I think this sort of thing just happens.

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.

 

She wasn't lugging a car seat around (though I agree with you on that philosophy) and what happened was pretty typical albeit frightening. I don't think she needs your advice on how to carry her baby. I am sure that she is a wonderful mother who has done something that many of other wonderful mothers have done. This is a post that needs encouragement, support and similar stories to back up the fact that she is a good mother and what happened has happened to many others on here.

I completely understand what you mean. I recently dropped my baby too about 3 ft- on the floor he went and hit his head.  There was no concussion, bleeding or cerebral spinal fluid leaking from his ears, eyes or nose and no projectile vomiting. We were terrified and rushed to ER where we found out he was ok. I watched him for days to ensure there was no subacute hemorrhaging but scariest day of my life.
