I fell down the stairs with Noah when he was 6 weeks old its awful isnt it. FOB decided to freak me out even more by telling me he had blood coming out of his ear so we went to A&E, he was completely fine just a little cut on the top of his ear, in fact i came out worse than him, i had bruises and scratches all up my back lol
it still makes me feel uneasy and guilty to think about it

My grandma dropped me twice before I was six months old. Once onto a coffee table and another time she didn't fasten me in the push chair as she went down a few steps. My mum loves to remind her of this story. I'm perfectly fine!
I'm so clumsy, I'm always worried about dropping my daughter. It's quite a common thing but very scary

I think it must be a rite of passage or something as everyone I know has done it!! My mum dropped my brother on wooden floor when he was slippery from the bath - much higher than sofa - another colleague did the falling asleep breast feeding thing and the first she knew about it was waking to the ding sound as baby's head hit the telephone by the bed!

Awww....I know just how you feel. The same thing happened to me when LO was about 7 weeks old. I was on the couch nursing her and nodded off (due to sleep deprivation) - next thing I know LO is on the tile floor crying!! The sound woke me up! I felt awful!! Thankfully she was ok. She's fallen quite a bit, unfortunately - I feel awful to say. She's rolled off the bed a couple times... Another time, she fell out of her carseat when DH was hoisting it up in the air - she wasn't strapped in properly. I felt like the worst mother in the world each time!

The pedi told me that babies are pretty resilient, though...

When Jed was one day old and we were still in the hospital the nurse came to hand him to me. He was all swaddled and he slipped out my hands ! Thankfully the nurse caught him before he hit the ground. I felt like such an idiot especially since it's my 3rd baby and you would think I would know how to hold one by now ! Anyway at least you had fallen asleep .... I had no excuse

Aww hun don't feel bad its happened to the best mom's. I'm sure that he will be fine and will never remember it. Just think of it as another story to tell when he grows up.

I fell over in the kitchen with Nathan a few weeks back. I walked into the freezer door and fell over it and dropped Nathan from about half a metre. We took him to casualty and they said that if anything was going to happen it would happen within 24 hours. They also said babies are really 'bouncy' and tend not to get hurt as much as an adult would. Just watch out for sickness. Don't feel too bad, accidents happen xx
