Put the baby (7 months) in his crib for a nap and about 45 minutes later, my mother calls. I’m talking to her and start to hear Simon crying, but I figure he’s just starting to wake up and can wait a minute for me to wrap up. Then a moment of silence and whump! and a lot of crying. Hang up immediately, run into the room and find that he’s fallen out of his crib and is lying on the floor. I guess he just pulled himself out.
I knew I needed to lower the bottom of the crib because he was starting to pull himself up in there in the mornings. But I thought he was fine for another couple of weeks before it became an issue. Thank God he’s okay… just a bit unhappy about falling out, but not even bruised and didn’t show any signs of pain after a minute or two and is doing great now. Still, I feel stupid. His first real accident too Oh well… just wanted to vent for a moment.
