Fell off the couch :(
Wyatt fell off the couch today. I had him on his belly on the chaise (sp?) portion of the couch. I was over near the kitchen ironing his tie as we were 5 minutes from walking out the door to church. All the sudden I heard a thump and heard my husband yell. I looked over and he was GONE. I screamed and then he started screaming. From what I pieced together, he rolled to the left onto his back and then did a backflip in the air and landed back on his head/belly. Fell about a foot and a half onto carpet. No marks and no broken bones, but I FREAKED out. He cried for about 5 minutes until I gave him a bottle. We have been watching him all day- it's been about 4 hours. My husband used to be a football coach, so he knows how to watch/check for concussions.

I hate myself right now. :(

Oh gosh, that's so scary. I'm glad he's ok! Don't feel bad though, stuff like that happens to EVERYONE!

Poor Wyatt, and poor you! Sometimes, things like that are harder on Mom and Dad than the baby! I'm glad he's ok. I agree that it happens to lots of parents! Good thing babies are resilient!
I know you don't need to hear this now, because it already happened, but my mom said a nurse told her, "Babies can't fall off the floor." Safest place for them!

My middle guy rolled off a 4-foot bed onto hardwood at 5 months. I felt like the worst mother on earth. I was right in the room.

It happens. To everyone. Babies are totally resilient. It's good you watched him. We did too (and called the doc). But chances are that he is completely a-okay.

Try not to beat yourself up over it.

Thanks everyone. He is absolutely fine today, so I think we are safe. Lesson learned FOR SURE. I guess it happens to a lot of babies- thank goodness they are so bendy, lol.

I'm so sorry you experienced that - I can understand your sheer panic and reaction. I'm glad he's ok! I have been way more lax with my second, leaving her on the bed when I probably shouldn't. This is a good wake up call for all of us!

If it makes you feel any better over a month ago Roman got pushed off of the ottoman while in his bouncy seat and hit his head on the floor. I started bawling and ended up taking him to the ER the next evening for peace of mind bc I was so paranoid everytime he spit up that it was possibly related to a head injury. Thankfully hes perfectly fine. Im sorry you had such a scare!! :(
