  • It happens! Check for bumps on her head and put ice on it if there is one. If she's smiling and acting normal I wouldn't worry.

  • also she is napping is this fine? It is her normal nap time and I think the crying wore her out.

  • Just keep checking on her but I'm sure she's fine. At some point, every baby will roll/fall off something. You are a normal momma!

  • I'm sure she's fine. Don't worry about it. These things do happen!

  • my oldest fell off his changing table, with me right there with a hand on his belly!! he ended up with a black eye and carpet brun on his face, but he was fine, he is almost 21 and I still tell people when he does something questionable, "Well, he did fall off his changing table at 5 months!"
    My youngest crawled off my water bed when he was 5 months on to my concrete bedroom floor, he cried but he was fine too....he never went near the edge of the bed again tho... they all fal off something someday, and I will tell you , I was one of those mothers that was so far up my oldest's ass that I could tickle his tonsils....he was totally over protected, and he managed to do it..dont be hard on yourself

  • I'm sure she is fine. It is hard when they are that little to see them get hurt but babies are resilant!

  • I know it was the first time that happened but rest assure it will not be te last. My girls have fell off of everything! No reason to feelguilty but I know you do, but remember she will never remember it. And remember to be prepaired because she will fall and have lots of accidents.

  • my son rolled off the couch a few weeks ago, he didn;t land on his head though, i felt so bad, picked him up right away cuddled him. I was just reaching for the wipes to change his stinky butt, now i put a blanket on the carpeted floor and change him there, he can't roll anywhere but off the blanket now.
