Things I’ve dropped on my baby.

Just swept the floor, had a dustpan full of dust and bits, turned round a bit too fast and the contents ended up all over ds (18 weeks) who was sitting in his chair.

Also, was breastfeeding him aged about 4 weeks and eating a sandwich when the filling (chicken salad) fell out and landed on his head!

I can’t be the only one 😂

Ketchup. Not once either.

Mobile phone, gravy, drops of tepid coffee, bean juice

Food, phone, toys, a sibling.

She's 16 months old now so I'm secure in the knowledge that she's pretty robust.

I drop water on her face in the night all the time and only realise when she startles and flaps about while I’m trying to BF grin
I’ve also dropped my phone on her head once and nearly cried out of guilt

Oh and beat this, ds now 12 and unharmed was in his bouncer by the Christmas tree age around 12 weeks when I allowed dd aged 8 (and somehow still unharmed now age 19) to switch the lights on to do so she had to crawl under the tree. Cue 6 foot real tree falling on new baby shock I was picking bits out of him for ages.
She still can't hear that story without getting upset but she was a proper shit that day and wouldn't even apologise as it was my fault for putting the tree there.

Chocolate cake. And my dad left a big chocolatey smear on his pristine white babygro! angry
Toast, toast crumbs. Jam. Marmalade.
My phone.
To be fair, that boy has sicked up on me more times than I can count, punched a fresh cup of tea out of my hand so it went in my eye and assaulted me with a wooden shape sorter.
It's a wonder either of us have made it this far.

I think I tea shock at 6 months. 3rd degree burns on one foot. Although technically, he grabbed it himself. It was the first time he made a proper lunge/grab attempt, and was very successful... On the positive side, it does mean that I have worried less about absolutely anything that has happened to fallen on him him since then. He's now 18 months and as robust as they come. His knees are completely covered in tiny scratch scars. Oh well!

Are you still reminding her of it opera?

Just told a friend what happened - she told me when her dd was about 8 months old she picked her up from her nap and was cuddling her, forgetting she had hair dye on. Her dd had a red patch in her pure blonde hair for a long time 😂

Aprildaisie it comes up roughly once a year as the tree goes up

Many,many books on DS1.

When I had DS2 I upgraded to a kindle for his safety. Easier to hold and lighter.

I was putting 4 day old dd down in the pram, in my sleep deprived state I managed to drop her on 4 day old ds who was already in there.
Neither woke up, although they both startled.

Juanbablo Sat 21-Oct-17 11:14:01

The day dd was born I was sitting on the hospital bed with her lying in front of me. I opened one of those little orange juice cups with the foil lid and spilled it all over dd. Only a few hours old and she needed an outfit change.

TheDodgyEnd Sat 21-Oct-17 11:14:31

My grandma ACCIDENTALLY dropped a full jam jar on DS head when he about 2. She knocked it out of the cupboard and didn’t realise he was right underneath her. The bump on his forehead was impressive to say the least! She felt awful but no lasting damage!

TheDodgyEnd Sat 21-Oct-17 11:15:55

And when DN was a few hours old he jerked back and threw himself off hospital bed onto hard hospital floor....again no damage but DSIL was beside herself for days about it

When DD was a few weeks old I was trying to multitask... I was bfing and trying to eat spag Bol at the same time. She pulled off suddenly and rolled down me into my plate of dinner (which had luckily cooled down!). She had an orange stain on the side of her face and her lovely white babygro was never the same again!

Have also dropped sour cream on her head while eating crisps and dip.

A chair. From a height. I was at the top of the stairs, DS was at the bottom crawling. It was his wee rocking chair thing I was carrying, it slipped out of my hands and landed on him. The guilt! Thankfully was still bfing him at the time and that always solved all woes.

A smorgasbord of food

And erm..... the cat.

The wonderful HoneyDragon dropped Immac on her baby's head once.

BonjourMeDarlin Sat 21-Oct-17 13:16:50

I dribbled in my baby. He was in the sling and I was so hungry and making chips and I kind of leaned into eat them and a big blob of dribble landed on his head blush

buttwingsham Sat 21-Oct-17 13:21:20

Various food and drink have landed on my four children over the years.

I think the worst though was probably when I fake tanned dc4 in the night he liked to sleep in the crook of my arm. He's neck was tanned for about a weekgrin

EvilCleverDog Sat 21-Oct-17 13:46:42

STDG immac 😱
