before I start just want to say please be kind nothing you can say will make me feel worse than I already do. I am beating myself up and I think maybe if I share it may make me feel a bit better.
early this morning my 5 week old DD woke for a bottle so I put her in bed with me for a cuddle before her feed as it was freezing then as I went to get up I don't know what happened but next thing I knew she had fallen on the floor she screamed I screamed and flew up and picked her up. I took her to the hospital to get her checked of course and they monitored her for 6 hrs as she had a small mark on her forehead where she had landed. she seems fine but gotta go back in the morning for another check over.
I feel like the worst mother ever and of course they give u the 3rd degree at the hospital to make sure it wasnt an intentional injury even tho I know they have to do this it is makes my guilt worse. I haven't stopped crying all day and every time someone says accidents happen I feel like I still should have been a better mother!! I a afraid to let her fall asleep incase something happens in her sleep like the injury gets worse.
Aarrggghh I feel like sh$t quite frankly
I can be the only mum this has happened to right??
thanks for listening
