This happened to me in Sainsbury's when DD was about 8 weeks old. It is utterly terrifying and I shook for ages. She wasn't strapped in because she was grumpy and I'd been carrying her, put her back in, never thinking the bloody pram would flip up.

She was fine. I wasn't sure if she'd hit her head either. I think the fact she was still floppy still actually helped.

Argh, it posted too early.

I'm no medical expert, have a look at all of him for bruises. For your own peace of mind, I would probably seek medical advice, either NHS direct, GP or walk in centre.

Looking after yourself too. It's an awful feeling. I couldn't believe it had happened and she was always strapped in after that.

I personally would go to a paediatric a and e if I was remotely concerned about a head injury.

Oh poor you. flowers

I would take him to get checked over, I think. Mainly because I don't think you'll be able to relax until you've been reassured he's fine. I would phone your GPs surgery in the first instance and see if they've got an appointment for today.

For peace of mind get some medical advice and have a strong brew.
At various points my kids have fallen off bed and sofa, down the stairs and off a wall. They were all fine smile

Thanks so much all, he is now laughing and playing so not sure whether to go to doc or not, I have fed him, he calmed down straight away, stripped him off and no sign of any bruising, I feel like a terrible mother 😱😰

He wasn't strapped in but didn't fall out, I will be doing up the straps every time from now on

Did the buggy tip over to the front or to the side? If front I'd probably get him checked if there's any chance his head made contact with the ground. When DD2 was 4 months she fell off the changing unit into the laundry basket and when we called NHS24 for advice they said any potential head injury needs to be checked. But when we got to the hospital the doctor sort of gave a hmm face that we'd been sent.
