I feel like I deserve the worst mom award after last night. I know accidents are bound to happen but I feel I could have prevented it but since nothing had gone wrong before that it was still ok to do.
Mannix took a tumble off the couch last night and landed on his front side. I had him in the boppy and I thought he still wasn't wiggling enough to roll off the couch but I sadly misjudged this. I went to the bathroom quick and I heard something but didn't think much of it until I heard Mannix scream. I ran into the living room and shock hit me when I realized he wasn't on the couch anymore. My eyes darted to the floor and there he was. OMG I have no words to describe the feeling I got from that.
I just feel downright aweful right now. I rushed him to Rob because I know I probably wasn't thinking straight to have the appropriate reaction so Rob took him to settle him down and took his clothes off to look him over while my shaking self went off to cry quick. Aside from a bump on the head (I fear he may have knocked the coffee table on his way down) he appeared to be ok. This morning the redness is completely gone and there appears to be no bump. Thankfully our couch seats are pretty low to the ground already and i'm hoping the boppy slowed the fall down so he wouldn't have hit anything to hard. I did call the nurses line as a precaution but she said falls will happen and babies are resilient but gave me things to look out for. This morning he's alright.
So right now I feel like I deserve the worst mom award. I know i'm being hard on myself but I honestly had a feeling I shouldn't be putting him in the boppy on the couch anymore. So as of today this has kick started my living room makeover. I'm ditching the coffee table and expanding the floor space by rearranging the furniture a bit. I snagged another rug and he is no longer being put on the couch anymore. We are officially moving to the floor full time.
