My Sucky Parent Day Has Come...

As you'all know, I am a huge failure at getting Warner to STTN. He usually starts the night in the PnP but ultimately ends up in bed with us. Well... last night I just could not get him transitioned to the PnP so I just let him sleep in our bed, like he's done a zillion times. 10:30pm we hear sudden crying on the monitor and yep :::::tail between legs::::: Warner fell off our bed. Thankfully our bed is super low to the ground, AND he somehow managed to land on my giant down pillow. But... I think this was a higher power telling me, "It's PnP time, skidderdo."

FX our sleeping issues improve if we can find a reasonably priced 2 bedroom in the DC area this summer. Sigh... I suck.

  • Hey don't beat yourself up over this! You are a super fantastic momma and Warner seems happy and healthy so you've obviously done a lot of things right !! I'm sure you will find the perfect place when the timing is right! I'm glad Warner is okay.

  • Aw, dude. I'm sorry. If it makes you feel better, when Mila was 6 weeks old, my mom and I were taking the kids for a walk. I rolled Mila out (in the car seat attached to my UBV, thanks God) out onto our front landing, which is 5 steps above the ground. I turned to lock the door and, since I had forgotten to lock the brake, Mila rolled to and FLIPPED down the stairs and landed upside down suspended by her thankfully-fully-harnessed car seat straps. I still have shivers thinking about it. You're not a bad parent.

    Fortunately he's a child genius with plenty of brain cells to spare.

    I kid. It happens to most parents eventually that a kid will have an accident that you feel like you could/should have prevented. But you are human, accidents happen, and fortunately kids are tough and resilient little buggers.

  • Yeah cece we are sardines in a 1 bedroom right now. Crib definitely would not fit. Honestly I wish we had the space for like a twin sized mattress on the floor because he sleeps soooooo much better in bed compared to the PnP. As yes it really sucks to learn the hard way... I just feel stupid because it was a preventable accident.

    I literally watched James fall right off my bed one day while I was changing clothes.  I was like 5 feet away from him, he wasjn't crawling yet but was starting to scoot, and I was changing clothes after work while DH was out of town... watching James and thinking "this is a bad idea.I should really grab him.  He could fall off the bed any min--"

    BAM.  Fell off the bed and landed on his back and screamed his head off and I wanted to kill myself for like 2 days.

    IT happens.

  • Dd usually ends up in our bed too unless I just let her CIO. If we lived In a 1 bedroom apartment I have no doubt she would be in bed with us every night. You're not a bad mom!! Dd fell off the bed when I was literally a foot away a few months ago.

    Yeah, that sucks. B fell off the bed a few months ago when I was literally standing right there. She was sitting up in almost the middle if the bed with a pillow on either edge and out of nowhere she just dove for one of the pillows and went right off the side - luckily onto carpet and she took the pillow with her, so she kinda landed on that. I was standing at the end of the bed and just didn't catch her in time. 

    She was more scared than anything, but I felt awful. Just kept reminding myself of what my midwife told me when I felt like I was screwing everything up in the first few weeks - babies were designed to be raised in caves. They are fierce little people. :)

  • @skidderdo have you tried buying a mattress for the pack n play. I think the brand is dream on...3 inch mattress. G sleeps horribly on a pack n play but once I added the mattress she sleeps much better!! And it's only like $30!!

    You are a life saver! Going to purchase as we speak!!! I think this is the main issue, he kicks his legs in the PnP and it's like "THUMP!!" and wakes him up. Thanks!!!
