Basically I'm wondering if I'm a little too laid back when it comes to LO's safety and if anyone else is the same? I got thinking about this because the other day I was in the living room, LO crawling around playing on the floor, and MIL was there with us watching. I noticed MIL jumped up a lot and gasped constantly and just looked like a worried mess while LO was playing, she even commented on how I don't even flinch and don't seem worried at all. The thing is I watch her like a hawk but in my head I'm constantly assessing the situation and danger level of what LO is doing, so if she starts to fall over and I know that she isn't near enough to anything that could hurt her, I don't move at all I just let her tip over and she crawls away happy as can be. With pretty much everything I just let her go for it and she falls over sometimes, bumps her head at least once a day, cries a little over it sometimes (less and less often as she's getting used to it) but in general she's never been actually hurt as in cuts or bleeding or even bruised. So is it bad that I don't jump to save her everytime she's about to fall over? Is it bad that I don't feel like a bad mom when she falls or hits her head or something, I just feel like it's a normal baby things to do. I guess I just expect her to get hurt throughout her childhood, I know I did! Anyone else?
