I'm 35w pregnant and my 21m old fell on what i think is my babies head. Could he harm her in there and cause any brain damage to her?
Not likely : There is plenty of cushioning around the baby. Use it as an opportunity to discuss how we should be gentle around people but I am sure it was an accident and don't worry about it. ...Read more
