If Your Baby Falls

Aug 4, 2008
My friend and I went to a salon for 2 hours and she left her son with 2 nannies. When she returned, she was shocked to find a large bump on the child's forehead. She suspected that the child had fallen from the bed during her nap, but neither of the nannies would admit anything happened. She is so angry since she didn't know what the caused the bump. She rushed her daughter to the hospital to make sure she's okay. Fortunately the bump is not serious.

Falls are common among young children while they start walking running and climbing. Small bumps and bruises are part of growing up, but don't assume that all injuries are minor. Tell nannies to inform you of all accidents these are the advice of her pediatrician, what to report: hot did she fall? What surface did she fall on? Did she vomit right after? Is she crying excessively? Also leave instructions on who to call, neighbors who can help and leave emergency taxi money in case she has to rush your child to the hospital.

To prevent the baby from falling, you must tell you nannies never to leave baby alone even for a short time. Never place chairs or other furniture beside windows as children may climb on them and fall off. Never leave young children unattended, especially near stairways. Install a safety gate o the stairs. Keep stairs clear of toys and other things that can cause accidental fall. Always strap children into high chairs strollers or shopping carts.

You can also teach your nannies on what to do in case of accidents happens.

1. Check if the baby if he has a bumps, bruise, or broken bones anywhere on his body.

2. Make the baby stop from crying in a nice way.

3. If the injured is not that serious, just put an ice pack on the bumps.

4. Observed it thoroughly until the next couple of days just to know if there is still finds some serious symptoms.

5. Call right away the parents.

Rush the child into the hospital if this the following will happen:

1. The child's is irritable and do not stop from crying.

2. If the child's is sleepy after the fall and cannot easily wake up.

3. If the child's vomits.

4. If the child's had pain on the head or at his back.

5. If the child's cannot walk normally.

6. If the child's eyes cannot focus normally.

7. Serious injure on his head, neck, back, ribs, or thighs and legs.

8. If the child's faint.

9. If the child's hard to breath.

10. If there is blood or water coming our from child's nose, ears and mouth.

You will really not feel well if you found out that there is an accident happened in one of your children, especially when it happen outside, most mother always need a support from their nanny, but just to be sure make your nanny be knowledgeable on what to do if accident occurs. As a mother we always want to protect them but still accident happen no matter how careful we are on our children.
