I put my baby in her carseat, on the coffee table while I ran outside to check and see if the base was in the car. The coffee table is 2 feet high and 5 feet away from the front door. I was only outside a minute. I came back in and my baby was sliding off the table, I could not catch her in time before she fell face first onto the ground..I could not believe I did not strap her in because we were about to leave to her grandmas..She immediately started screaming and I rushed her to the emergancy room. She is fine but has a little bit of a busted lip. She is laughing, smiling and still playful with all her strength so they let us come home. She is 6 months old.
I cannot get rid of the feeling of guilt. It is all my fault and I feel like a terrible mom. How Could I let this happen to my daughter?
Has anyone else been in my shoes?

I put my DD down on the bed and turned around to get something out of her dresser she crawled off the bed and broke her collar bone. I felt terrible. But I learned from it. Do not turn your back on your child.
