Hi, my youngest child is 6 months old. A few days ago (3), he slipped in my arms when I removed him from the bath and I luckily caught him, but by his neck/head area, He's been fine since but I worry. What do you think? Thanks

Wow you were lucky.. but to be safe I'd take baby to get seen. I would have took him right away. Not to make you feel bad but I think your being careless to only ask about that three days later.

I would get him checked.

It's just because it's playing on my mind. He's been fine, no marks, or change in behaviour etc. Tbh at first I was just relieved he wasn't hurt etc because I caught him. Where I caught him didn't really occur to me

I expect he is fine, but I'd get him seen anyway.

It depends for me. If you full on caught them by the head then I would take them to be seen. If it was just a case of you putting your arm out and then supporting their neck head and they didn't hit hard/seem distressed, they are moving their head fine and you have a tendency to play things over and worry then I wouldn't.

Thanks. No I didn't full on catch him by his head. And yeah I am one of those people. I worry all the time about everything. And it was only a little slip. Its not as if all his weight was being held by his head. I just worry. He didn't slip very far at all tbh

I pictured his head Nick taking weight of his body. That's different. But for piece of mind get him checked over
