Baby Hitting Head :(


So I am pretty much furious right now, and it has been like 8 hours since this has happened but I am getting more and more mad as the night goes on.

I was at a friends house today (used to be my best friend but she is one of the most boring people on the planet now...she only lets her kids colour with plain old grey pencils and they can't play with toys...but I will save that story for another day) and she was serving me a very boring lunch (A HALF A GRILLED CHEESE when she invited me over for lunch!) when her 3 1/2 year old Alex wanted to go play with Helena. I said finish your lunch first, which her mom should have said, but anyways...

My friend says go ahead for one minute you can look at Helena but do not touch her. Her kid FRIGGING PICKS UP MY BABY AND THROWS HER INTO A BAR STOOL. Helena was just laying on the carpet trying to do her crawling thing and this monster of a child did this!!! Helena was screaming so hard and my friend didn't even care. Helena got a huge bump on her head and it bruised and this bitch didn't even offer me ice or apologize, she went and hugged her kid when she started crying because I glared at her.

I know it is a little kid, but cmon now, you don't hug them when they pick up a baby and throw her into a bar stool.

Anyways, it is like I said 8 hours later, Helena is tucked into bed and seemed fine the rest of the day besides this goose egg popping out of her side of her forehead.

Is there anything I should be doing? My mom said that if she is her usual self she is probably fine. She seems a bit more fussy so I gave her some tylenol.

I am never going to this house again. Her other kid also sat on Helena's back and tried to go for a ride on my little baby!

Also, how do I say to my "friend" that I do not feel comfortable having her kids around Helena? Do I just say that? Has anyone else been through something similar?

I would just tell her that I don't trust her kids around my baby, and that she should learn to discipline her kids.

Yeah thats what my mom said, so I guess she should be alright My poor little munchkin. Last time this same little girl went into my dishwasher and took out a knife and her mom did not take it away, and she threw H's bouncer and almost hit Helena in the head that time too!

OMG, That is horrible! Your poor baby girl! A 3 and a half year old should certainly know know better, I mean jeeze! That little girl is not too young to understand that hurting others is wrong. Just tell your friend the truth, that you aren't going put your baby at risk, especially since she doesn't see anything wrong with her child hurting a baby.

As for the bump, just continue to ice it, and check for signs of a concussion (call the doctor if they have these signs): loss of consciousness, drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, vomiting, irritability, drainage, clear or bloody, from his nose, mouth, or ears.
Also watch for these signs over the next day or two, and take your baby to the doctor if your baby: Is vomiting (It's okay to have a bout of vomiting after a fall, but it shouldn't persist), Seems unusually sleepy during the day or can't be awakened at night (Try waking your baby a couple of times the first night after his fall, just to make sure you can), Seems weak or confused, or seems to have problems with coordination, vision, or verbal communication (harder to notice but try)

Thats awful and a 3 1/5 year old absolutely knows better!

What a rat!

I think me in that situation would have done the 'inappropriate' thing and told off the 3 year old... if her mum doesn't do it, if a 2 + year old intentionally hurt Jasper I'd be using my angry teacher voice on them! I've got a few years of training in the 'angry teacher voice'. I can be scary... without even raising my voice... its great!

Although, I doubt I'd ever be invited overfor lunch again!

Not that you'd want to!

I hope Helena is okay and not to upset by it all!

for both of you!
