My 4-Months Old Baby Fell From Bed!

My 4-months old baby fell down from my bed. Yes, my baby was sleeping with me and I just left her to go to bathroom to pee, then I heard a thump followed by a loud cry. I quickly got out from the toilet and I saw my baby on the floor facing down. Luckily, there was a blanket on the floor so she had a bit of cushion when she fell. However, when I saw her on the floor, my heart almost leapt into my mouth and I quickly scooped her up and hugged her to calm her down.

I made a quick inspected her to check if she suffered any injury. The first thing I checked was her head. Gently, I pressed all parts of her head, looking for any depression, soft spot or swelling, I then checked her face. I saw a red mark on her left cheek that later turn slightly bluish. I also checked whether her pupils were even and whether her pupils followed my finger when I moved it. I also moved her limbs to see if there were any broken bones (she laughed when I moved her limbs). Except for the red bruise on her cheek everything seemed OK. Thank God!

That is so scary! I'm glad she's ok. My son (the older one) fell off the couch at about 5 months...that's when we realized he could finally roll over!
