So DD (8.5 months old), was playing with DH on the couch and just falls backwards....cries for about 5 minutes...and was kind of upset the rest of the night. She was about to vomit but she controlled herself and didn't. She seemed OK though. I called the doc and she just said to monitor her...check for pupils, extra fluid out of ears/nose, any bumps, drowsiness...and if all is OK, just monitor her for 24-48 hours. Luckily she was crawling and eating afterwards. Doc also mentioned to wake her in the middle of the night to check for consciousness. I did not do that because she was rolling around alot during her sleep so i figured that was good enough.
In the scope of things, she fell on a carpet and our floors are wood panels so it's not TOTALLY hard...but it's hard enough to make she and I cry!!
I feel bad because i was on the couch with them and watch the whole thing and i couldn't move fast enough to catch her...I lost sleep last night
Anyone else have their LO's fall and how did you react and help baby feel better?
