Did Baby Ever Fall on Her Head?

There are some accidents and parenting disasters that are par for the course and others that are inexcusable. Driving your children after drinking could run you far, far off the right course, but other calamities — like dropping baby on her head, or a baby rolling off the bed — are somewhat unavoidable. Have any of your children been dropped or fallen or rolled on to their heads as babies?

Babies have very durable heads. Thank goodness!

Ooh I just realized my grammar error. Meant to say "doesn't mean you're a bad mother." Sorry, I'm a stickler for grammar! Glad to see that other mothers are telling their stories too. Like one person said, unless you pack the crib in foam and live a sheltered life, situations like this are bound to happen!

My daugher, who was eight at the time, was holding my then four month old son and he threw his body back and she dropped him. I will never forget the sound he made when he hit the floor. We had to bring him to the hospital to make sure, but he was fine, just a bump on the back of his head that was gone the next day. It took my daugher, however, far longer to get over it.

my two year old fell down ONE stair over christmas and hit her head hard enough to pass out and start vomiting...ONE step, we were not watching her go down the stair. i was terrified. we rushed her to the ER where a cat scan showed all fine aside from a minor concussion , but still super scary. every fall is scary and parents feel bad enough without others passing judgement :(

We have a really low bed, and I laid my daughter down on it to fold some laundry. She was about 4 or 5 months old at this point. I looked away to grab a shirt and in that split second she had rolled off. She fell on her belly. Of course I felt like the world's worst mother, but if you talk to any mom, they've had it happen to them at some time or another. Doesn't mean your a bad mother, unless it happens on a regular basis and you're leaving your infant unattended. Things like that can happen in seconds, even if you're the most cautious mom.
