  • When my dd was about 8 months I did. Not to hard and she didn't even cry. How old is your baby and is he/she ok? My dd was a little wiggle worm. She hated to be held. I was carrying her for a diaper change and she was kicking and fling her arms everywhere she slid out of my arms, down my thigh and onto the floor. I'm sure it was an accident and as long as he/she is fine don't be too hard on yourself.

  • Mine fell off the bed before I realized they could squirm that much. Learned my lesson the hard way. It happened when we were asleep, and I would nurse them in bed. I felt like complete crap for that, but, they are both perfectly fine. Just keep in mind that they'll have a lot more bumps and bruises once they start walking, and running around outside. I think my son gets a new scratch on his legs daily as much as he's outside. He'll climb up and jump off anything. I really have to watch him.

  • Thank God no but dont be too hard on yourself. Although one day she did kick so hard that she managed to turn over her bassinet which was on pillows on the floor. And she rolled a bit. God I picked her up so quick and cuddled her so tight. She was even smiling at me like "what????"
    It took me weeks to forgive myself

    My pedi told me that although it is horrible, babies rather than toddlers receive less injuries when dropped or fall because they dont fight it. Whereas children will put an arm or leg out to stop themselves and get injured

    Accidents happen. Forgive yourself
