No...I would feel so horrible! I don't know of anyone who has... At least no one has admitted it to me.

My kid rolled off the couch when he was 2 1/2 months old. My brother was holding him and set him down to get the door (him and my dad were helping me move), and my brother didn't realize my son could roll over. But no... I haven't actually dropped him.

I never dropped them, but my DS rolled out of bed. I was right there and tried to catch him, I managed to slow him down, but I didn't catch him, only succeeded in turning him so he landed head first. I felt horrible and he screamed for a good five minutes or so. He was 4 months old. He's 2-1/2 now and aside from being in the terrible twos, he's a perfectly normal kid.

No, I never dropped my daughter, but I did fall down some stairs and she did hit her head on the metal railing.  We both went to the ER that day and I was the only one injured thankfully ( I sprained my ankle). I felt horrible that it happened.

 when my oldest was 4 or 5 months old, itw was cold winter and he was bundled in a snowsuit like the boy on a christmas story, anyway DH was carrying him into the house and slipped on the Ice, as he fell his reaction was for his hands to go up and so did DS, it was like slow motion to me, I was already on the porch, I watched him go up like 6 feet but seemed like 20 and he came down, DH was on his back in pain, and DS laned in the snowbank!!!!! Before I could get down off the very icy porch, my DH had picked DS up and ran down the extremely long driveway across the field to my moms house so scared he hurt our son. THank Heavens DS was not hurt in any way, he wasnt crying and was alert etc. still took him to dr. next morning and watched him closely thru night to be sure. That was soooo scary for us though!!

Didn't actually drop him, but he fell off the bed one morning when I was getting ready for work and DF dozed off. He was fine. Babies are very resilient. If this is not just a hypothetical-just keep a close eye on the baby, check for bumps and bruises, and call your pedi if you're worried.
