Worry wart

This is just driving me crazy but at the same time I know she's ok. My DD was sitting up this morning playing on the floor with me. She was sitting on 2 blankets ontop of carpet btwn my legs. I slid over to grab a clean diaper so I was no longer behind her and boom, she fell straight back and hit her head on the floor. She cried for 1 but she has eaten well and we went to music class and she's been laughing , etc. she has her periods of fussy time but some days it's more than others in general so I'm not sure if it's from the short fall. Should I be overly concerned????

    I'm sure she's fine.

    E did this all the time when he was just getting good at sitting and still does once in a while.  Half the time he doesn't even cry.

    It was a floor with carpet plus two blankets over it?  Should be okay.  Signs of concussion would be something to worry about (sleeping a lot, vomiting, etc.) but I'm sure she's fine!  They're more durable than we think.

    My DD had fallen over several times. Even with pillows behind her she'll figure out how to hit her head. I just use 1 extra thick blanket on hard wood floor. She usually just fusses for a sec and then is fine. I'm sure your LO is too, especially being on the carpet with 2 blankets.

    Two blankets and a carpet offer plenty of padding IMO. I wouldn't be worried.

    I'm a worry wart just like you. My LO rolled off the bed the other day and I freaked. My mattress is on the floor right now since we're waiting for our new bed frame so it wasn't a huge drop but still, it scared the crap out of me. She didn't even make a peep though. Just looked up at me like "uh, wtf lady? you're supposed to NOT turn your back, ever. thanks" 

    Learned my lesson! I'm sure we will experience a lot more things that will make us worry. I vote we all wrap our LO's in bubble wrap ^.^
