We know every child ever has done this, but we thought it might just bypass us…
This morning, after our morning feeding, I put CDubs back in his crib to get ready, to get him ready, for daycare. I walk out, my husband walks in. My husband is getting an outfit together for our little guy to wear out. Ryan turns around to go through our mini man sock bin and then..
My husband whirls around expecting to see a crying CDubs in his crib. He falls or flops down inside the crib all the time and hits his head on the bars or headboard/footboard. So he’s expecting a crying baby in the crib. There was no baby in the crib!
That monkey baby had stood up on a penguin and flipped himself over the edge! So there he was, laying on the floor confused and afraid and hurting! He cried for a minute or two and I nursed him again and he seemed fine. However being first time parents, we checked online and went into the pediatrician’s when they opened.
Except for some small bruises he’s okay, but we opted to keep him home with us so we can monitor him.
In these instances, one obviously make sure you lower the crib, make sure there aren’t any bumps or indents in his or her skull, check pupil dilation, check for dizziness, vomiting, bleeding out of nose or ears, check spine and limbs and diaper area, check appetite…..
So maybe just take the baby in if it happens to your baby as well…
So we shall clean the kitchen tomorrow and wash clothes today. It just couldn’t be helped!
