She seems to be okay...should I take her to emergency just to make sure?? I'm gonna put stairgate on top as well....She has been bumping herself in so many places since she started walking. What should I do?

if she seems to be OK, don't take her to A&E. She will do this a lot. If she was crying or really lethargic, I would but if she seems fine, she probably is smile

how far did she fall?

How far did she fall? Any visible lumps or bruising and is she alert? Did she cry immediately after falling? If you're worried then don't hesitate to take her, would probably go to walk in rather than a+e unless she is losing consciousness or seems very ill.

she's playing at the moment. Have been a bit whingy and frustrated as she's hurting herself a lot...she fell all the way down on her front and then did a flip on the way down...and cried A LOT for 1 min. she's playing with phone and going pip pip at the moment.....I feel yucky

poor you sad

I would probably take her to be check out if in doubt, that's quite a long way to fall.

In meantime, look out for signs of shock

pale, cold, clammy skin,
rapid breathing and rapid pulse,
nausia etc.

Or hot flushed, red face, if you notice this take her IMMEDIATELY.

Am off out now, HTH xxx

okay..she seems to be fine. She must be really tired as she has her booster yesterday and maybe she's a bit off was HORRIBLE fall though I thought she might die.

she has red face.. already as she is teething as well and having cold. eating yogurt happily at the moment.

Yes, poor you cybercat. It is awful when they hurt themselves. She sounds like she is doing ok but I would probably take her to walk-in just to get checked because it is quite far to fall. Hope you are both ok.
