Tell me this has happened to your DC and they're fine?? (Not that I want any other babies to have gone through this!)
5.5-month-old DS was just playing on the floor on a blanket, he is just learning to sit up and lately has been able to stay up on his own for quite a while at a time. Well for the first time ever
I didn't put a million pillows around him incase he fell and just sat him on the blanket for a second so I could get situated sitting down (was going to support him w/one hand and eat a bowl of cereal w/the other), and within a second or two of sitting him up he fell right back and hit his lil head.
He cried hard for a few seconds until I nursed him, then he was fine. Doc office nurse says to observe him for 24-48 hours and that he's probably fine.
The blanket is like a fake goose down material, which might sound cushion-y but the feathers tend to bunch up in certain areas and it looks like DS fell on a spot that was hardly any cushion at all, just thin fabric - on top of HARDWOOD floors.
There was definitely a "boom" sound when he hit his head. Poor lil guy. I tested it myself where he fell and the stupid blanket definitely didn't help the fall much.
I feel HORRIBLE, if I wasn't being so selfish trying to make it so I could eat this wouldn't have happened.
And of course I'm terrified now that he's going to have brain damage or has a concussion and just hasn't shown any signs yet. I just had to get this off my chest.
