Almost found my baby strangled!

Its a few days till my 11 month olds first birthday. We have been counting it down and we are all so excited. 

Today I woke up at the normal time to my DD crying. She normally wakes up at the same time everyday and I get her a milk and we have cuddles. I got out of bed without delay and wakled into my little girls room and she was standing in her cot with the chord from the blinds wrapped around her neck 3 times. 

She has never touched them before and I wasnt worried because I didnt think she could reach them. 

I called for my husband because I was so panicked  and I couldnt figure out which way the chords had to go. My brain pretty much goes to jelly in scary situations. It only took her a few seconds to get her undone and it hadnt cut into her or choked her. But we took this as A BIG warning. My DH cut the chords so short that only we could reach them. 

Thank god I am not a heavy sleeper and thank god she didnt strangle herself to death. I Don't think I could have handled finding my baby dead with those horrible chords around her neck. 

Now we are thinking of taking all the blinds in the house down.

The thought of not seeing my beautiful girl look at me with her big beautiful eyes just got me so worked up this morning.

Glad she is ok. I tie my blinds cords so my dd can't reach them. Of course neither can I. Lol

 oh my god! poor baby. I bet you were so scared :( Mine are all wrapped up and out of reach but cutting them is a good idea. I'll look into that too.
