Brae’s first fall from the bed

Brae had his first fall from the bed yesterday night. I was in the bathroom and hubby was downstairs cleaning the house. Before that, I placed Brae in the middle of our bed surrounded by pillows (what we usually do when we leave him on the bed alone) and gave him some toys to play with. As it is with him these days, he started crying the instant I walked into the bathroom. Cry, cry, cry, followed by a loud “Thuudd”, then cry, cry cry.

I quickly rushed out of the bathroom and saw Brae lying prone on the floor crying his lungs out. “Oh sh*t!!!”, was the first phrase that came out of my mouth.

I nearly cried when I lifted him up from the floor. By that time, hubby also made it to the room (didn’t know he could move so fast). I carried Brae and comforted him. “It’s okay…it’s okay”, I whispered to Brae but he still kept crying. Oh no, deep trouble this time.

Hubby took over to try to calm Brae down and after a short while, Brae stopped crying. We checked him over and fortunately, no blood, no blue black marks and no cracked bones. Brae seemed fine. Hubby played with Brae and he laughed. Ahhhh….we felt very relieved when we heard him laugh.

I was wondering how he fell off the bed. He must have toppled down the sideof the bed after pushing his “pillow wall” out of the way with his famous rolling action.

I’m a BAD mummy…..!!!! Makes me feel so BAD….!!!! So sorry, Braedyn!

    No matter how careful we are, they still sometimes fall.. so we have to just put in all the preventive measure.

    If I have leave her for too long, I prefer to put her in the cot with all bars raised (when she was younger).

    Btw, when he’s older, teach him how to climb donw from the bed. Zara learnt that as soon as she can cruise. That helps. She never tried to roll down the bed, always climb down. Unless of course she’s not aware and slip.

    don’t feel bad. Belle rolled off the bed and sofa few times already. Luckily our floor is carpeted. Like zmm said, just put him in the cot. I’ve been doing that ever since Belle started to crawl.

    Don’t feel bad, ask all mommies, which baby has not fallen off the bed. Both mine have 🙂 Heh heh..U can put mattresses on the floor or even better let him play on the mattress on the floor while u do your chores, so need not worry about him falling off
