Q:

Today unfortunately when I wasn't around, my 4m lo fell down from the bed while rolling over inspired of covering the bed with pillows etc. Though there weren't any external injuries, I'm worried of any other damage. Experts please guide or share their experiences.

Do not worry if the baby cries and sleeps . if there is a vomiting then reach out to ur doctor asap.

There's no vomiting, he is behaving as usual, didn't cry much

Then its fine, just observe for any behaviour changes for 24 hours.

Ok thanks, I'll do that

Dr. Payal M

my kids have rolled off the bed coupke of times.as long as baby cried and didn't vomit and later behaved normally, dont worry.
ive learnt babies can roll over or push pillows etc n still manage to fall frm bed. esp onve they start creeping n crawling. so better put a mattress on the floor or get a crib.
dont worry. i felt terrible n guilty too when it happened. but babies r very strong n resilient.

Agree with Dr. Payal M . As soon as my lil boy started rolling over, we dismantled the bed and started sleeping on the floor.... Ateast he can't fall from the floor.. Babies are quite the adventurous lot!!

same happen with my 7m baby few days back. Just observe her behaviour for 3 days. if there is vomiting or any behavioural change, visit to doc. else no worries..
