It's OK. they all do this, it's nothing to worry about. How high is the bed? Is there a rug underneith?

He sounds fine. My ds once managed to roll off the bed and I was downstairs and nearly died when I heard the thump. He was absolutely alright. (In fact I'm amazed that with a toddler already this is the first time it has happened).

Ds also manage to topple head first off a coffee table on to a (tiled) kitchen floor, that was loads worse (for us) but he was still absolutely alright.

Give NHS Direct a call if it will make you feel more secure, but they are likely to say 'in these situations, we're generally guided by what the mum thinks', so if you think he seems fine, they'll say not to worry.

The thud. The pause. And then the mighty scream. I know this well. I wouldn't worry if he/she is smiley again. Apparently they are relaxed (not tense) and doesn't hurt quite the same? !

don't worry mine did that too and no ill effects. bit upset then fine. if he's smiley and normal he's not hurt.

You have a shit baby?? How odd.
Mine did that. Don't worry about it. They are not braced for pain like we are, so he didn't hurt as much as you'd think.
It is the differece between you hurting yourself sober (hurts like hell) or doing the same thing after a few glasses of wine (not bothered).

He's fine! Honestly, I know what the shock factor is like, you are in a much worse state than he is.

I bashed my 10 day old off the bedroom door! She has also fallen off the bed...though at around 10 months. You'll feel worse than he does. He'll be fine smile

you will feel soooo much worse than he does! it is horrible when it happens but they are hard to break.

My paed said that as long as they cry right away then you are normally fine.

DS got dropped out of his car seat when he was 6 weeks old, Dad picked up the carseat without checking if the handle was locked into position and it flipped, dropping DS out onto his face. shock It was awful, I was ok but my Dad was shaking and crying.

Don't worry, we have all done it. Babys bounce incredibly well.

Just make sure he's not more drowsy then normal, abnormal crying, enlarged fontinelle, it's hard to say with the vomiting as they puke anyway. If you are worried then contact NHS direct.

ds used to fall off the bed loads. It was more of a shock for him than anything else. He only hurt himself once, my friend was watching him and he went for a dive and cut his chin. sad I've seen parents in a right state because they hadn't realised their babay can roll and they have fallen on the floor.
