  • Do you have a learning disability? If not, I can't imagine why your child keeps falling from places. Don't put your baby up high where they can fall ANYMORE!!! Damn....5 times...you've got to be kidding me.

  • The bed...4 times, the couch 2 times but one was really bad! I swear she thinks she has wings & can fly. When holding her she flings herself backwards like she's participating in a high dive! I couldn't take it anymore so I got foam mats for the floor so if she does decide to fly or stand up & fling herself backwards I don't have to worry about a concussion or an er trip. Babies R Us has some foam ABC mats that are great!!!!

  • My son has never fallen off of anything. I don't put him on the bed or couch by himself or where I'm not between him and the edge. I can't imagine him falling as many times as some of your kids have.

  • My 6 month old son just fell off the couch for the first time the other day actually. I still feel HORRIBLE about it. So I'm not planning on that ever happening again. I think 5 times is a lot...maybe you should be more careful. It usually happens to everyone once, twice maybe, but 5 times? I think there's a lesson here that's not being learned.
