My daughter is 11 months old. I was vising my in laws who were residing at kakinada. One day since i was preparing tea for me and my mom in law, my mom in law took my baby and placed her on the bed as my baby was disrupting her from sweeling the floor. My mom in law after placing her on the bed left the room for a second and i was in the kitchen totally unaware of the situation. Suddenly, i a heard a noice of a large stone falling on the ground. When i came out to find out what happened, to ky shock it was my baby who fell down. You should have been there to see my reaction. I was almost fainted. I took my baby and started crying along with her. My baby was completely shocked and was crying immensely. But after 15 minutes she was normal and was behaving normal. I was so mad at my mom in law but couldn't say anything. After one week i returned to Hyderabad, still shocked about the recent incident. I explained the entire situation to my mom to which she said it's normal for kids to fall off the bed. We need to check for any bump and bleeding if any in these situations. Since there were none of those, i was relieved that nothing happened to my baby. After that incident, i am not giving my baby to anyone to hold her for 1 minute also

My 10th month old son fell from our bed 3 days ago early in the morning. I was half asleep and suddenly heard a bump on the floor. I quickly got up and search for my baby on the bed but when I looked down on the floor, he wasnt able to open up his eyes , half-asleep and was clapping happily! I am still glad that he wasnt showing any pain since he didn't cry at all and was clapping. And I took him up and held him to my chest and nursed him by checking if he has any bump on his head. It was an experiencing incident and quite a funny one. Thank God he is still okay. :)

good one.. one more thing I would like to add is.. fall is a must in everyones life to get up and walk forward.. every fall as said above doesnt need panic.. I remember reading when your baby falls.. dont show too much of care.. unless and untill required.. they have to learn to get up and move foward.. this will boost their self confidence ..but saying that.. dont forget to be vigilant..

My toddler is all grown up now, so that he can come down from the bed easily, but when he was of 1 yr (now he is of 1. 8) he had a big fall from bed on his head and backside, there were no signs of danger, but I m still worried, will it affect his brain in anyway?

My 2 year old daughter had a small slip from a chair and was in complete discomfort and agony for 2days till I as a mother figured out that something was definitely wrong. My MIL and husband were persistent that these small falls keep happening and that it is absolutely fine. I took her to her pediatrician who also said that nothing was wrong as my daughter was able to move her hand around.. but as they say no one understand a baby more than their mother. The third day following the fall was my birthday and when my husband asked me what I wanted to make my day memorable I asked a visit to a pediatric orthopedician. Reluctantly we were taken to the hospital where the doctor confirm my baby's collar bone fracture. That was the day after which no one dared to speak against a mother's instinct.

Also check for baby's mouth for cuts specially if teething is in progress. Best solution I have learnt to stop bleeding from lips is to give around 10 to 15 sugar crystals to kid to nibble on. It helps to stop bleeding and calms the kid as well.

i agree with the above post. Being a doctor and a mother of a 11month old child, it gets really nerve rackin at times. my baby had a fall from a height of 10feet from the stairs. It was heart wrenching to see my child crying in pain. the pain stayed for around 3 days but luckily the baby survived the fall bravely. She couldn't crawl for around 3 to 4 days and it ws doubtful for me as was suspecting fracture or so but eventually nothing was there and in a weeks time she was back to her normal self
