Bella’s First Fall

Last Sunday was one of the most unforgettable moments of our family’s lives. Bella suffered her first fall. She fell from the bed causing a big bump on her forehead and a black-eye at her eyelids, all at the right side of her face.

Below is a picture of her a few hours after the fall.

I felt very bad because I wasn’t there to rescue her. I couldn’t blame my older daughter entirely since she is still young and being carefree is expected at her age.

Anyway, I am glad that the cold compress somehow helped in lessening the dark shades of her bumps. Aside from that, she was able to adjust normally and proceeded to be active after she cried from the fall.

After the fall, my husband and I sleep in an “L” pattern. We keep the baby inside the bed and we became human fences just in case she crawls again while we are sleeping. It is better to be safe than be sorry again.

  1. Awww…guilt trip talaga sa atin pag ganyang nangyayari sa ating mga tsikiting. But accidents happen. Buti na lang di naman serious yung resulta. Just wondering,why is she not sleeping in her crib? It’s safer dun, di ba?

    Kamusta na?

    1. @Mommy J,

      She was awake when she feel. Nag crawl sya at the back of her Ate Micah who was busy playing with her father’s laptop. Alam mo naman sa atin mommy, hinde uso sa crib pinapatulog ang baby. Dapat tabi kay Mommy for added warmth. 😀

  2. ouch! poor princess Bella, it’s ok Mommy Rubz, it’s part of growing up, and we knew as she grow older, she’ll be more active.so watch out!

  3. Poor sweet baby.. 🙁 That kind of incidents can happen, but I’m glad that your daughter didn’t suffer from anything too serious. The bump will go soon, just apply some ice and soothing cream everyday. *hugs*

    As for Simmy’s photo, I have to ask him first. Hopefully we get one together sooner or later. ^^ If anything, I hope I can share one from a password-protected post sometimes soon.

  4. Aww, kawawa naman. I’m thankful na wala pang nangyaring ganyan with my Una but we’re being extra careful just to avoid any major accidents. In our case, we removed the bed frames and just have the mattress on the floor for the meantime. Ibabalik na lang namin kapag okay na yung balance niya.

  5. Oh I also hope that Baby Bella is okay. sana di na maulit, just like what Badet says, her guardian angel would surely take care of her.

  6. Sorry to hear about Bella’s fall. I hope she’s okay. I just had to comment on your post. 🙂 My husband and I have been sleeping in an “L” pattern for almost a year now! I thought we were the only ones doing it until now. Once in while I sleep in the middle, but tons of pillow still at my baby’s feet thus maintaining the “L” shape. Hope it works out for you.
