Why do moms criticize moms who worry about their kids?

hmmm...I asked a question about falling and I was told to stop overreacting. My son fell backwards while sitting and really cried a lot, so I was worried if he hurt his head. Sometimes when he falls on his butt, he is fine and doesn't cry. I know he has to learn but I think it is ok to worry if my son seriously hurt his head.

  • Did he fall from a height? How old is he? When a child hits their head you should watch for loss of consciousness, bleeding, sudden onset of drowsiness, eyes that are dilated (big pupils) or one dilated and one not, vomiting, slurring words, or any other strange behaviors.

    Kids fall a lot and often times are okay so it's good to get a bit of a thick skin about it, but it's good to worry too. I feel so bad when my son gets hurt, but he's a so rambunctious sometimes!

  • I agree w/you...people that do not show concern are unemotional human beings...and they call themselves moms....lol

  • I worry too about hitting of the head. Long as there is no LOC, no vomiting, bleeding of course, i wouldn't worry too much. . .just keep an eye on him. (((hugs))) it's scary though. I remember when my son fell off the bed & hit his head. Freaked me out

  • I think the moms with older kids forget how much a first time mom worries about everything. They were probably the same way though.

  • You NEVER "overreact" when it comes to your child! You're a normal, caring mother. Don't let anyone tell you that you're overreacting.

    I am a first time mom, and even though my kid is 13 months old, I STILL have her pediatrician on speed-dial! The receptionists recognize my voice immediately because I call all the time!

    It's scary when your child hits his/her head. My heart sinks everytime my daughter hits her head (she's not very steady on her feet).

  • Some of the women on here are rude and downright stupid. The only thing you can do is ignore them. They want the attention of starting drama.

  • OP remember many members here are not even moms just bored people who have no lives. Concentrate on the postitive posts on Cafemom and ignore the 45 year old men who live in their parents basements who are on the computer all day because no one likes them. Also many moms on here ignore their kids all day so to see a mom who actually cares highlights to them how bad they are and they attack.

    I hope your little one is OK.

  • lol- Thanks everyone. He is doing fine. There were no sudden changes or vomiting. I don't even see a red spot now. I can just imagine what will be happening when he starts running around.
