Oh no, the guilt you put on yourself as a mother is unbelievable isn't it?
Another baby dropper here! When dd was about 8 weeks old i missed a step going out our front door and fell with her in my arms. She landed on the stones face down and was screaming! Her face was all scratched and i felt terrible. To make matters worse, we were on our way to my neice's birthday party and i had to face the mother in law - who was not amused! Luckily my sil's friends were all there and they made me feel much better by saying that these things happen and that babies are more resiliant than we give them credit for!
Thankfully i haven't dropped her since but hubby did let her fall off the bed a few months ago when he didn't realise she could move so quickly!! It was an accident and she was fine but he also felt awful! Needless to say it has never happened again!
