6 month old rolled off the couch....

I feel horrible already, so PLEASE no bashing.
My 6 month old just rolled off the couch. It was a maybe a foot and a half fall for him. He cried, but it only took me a couple of minutes to calm him down. He's sleeping now... but it's his naptime anyway. Should I wake him up and make sure he's ok?

  • Gosh, I don't know a parent out there that this hasn't happened to! He should be fine, and don't feel bad, ( I know easier said then done)!
    It will be okay.

  • My week old did the same thing. We had carpeting- but anyway no harm done. Chances are your baby is fine, too, but for your peace of mind maybe wake him up tonight.

  • It's ok Mama it happens. He is fine sleeping if it' too long I would wake him. If he cries uncontrolably or starts to vomit take him to the ER. He should be fine. Just keep an eye on him.

  • We have carpeting too, and I don't see any bumps. I think it just scared him. Ugh, I feel terrible.

  • Awww... don't feel bad. My son did that at 2 weeks but he didn't even wake up. Babies are tough! Don't beat yourself up, we've all been there!

  • It is a normal thing. Don't worry about it. My son rolled off our bed when He was 4 months old It was a short fall since back then our mattress was on the floor. He was still sleeping on the rug!! LOL.
