Infant Falls from Bed It is Often Dangerous

Catagory: Neurodevelopmental disorders Author: Dr Rohit Kiran Cherukuri

It may be a frightening experience for parents if their baby often falls out of bed. Babies who are just born are less likely to tumble out of bed since they can move about independently. Your infant will begin to learn how to roll from one side to the other around the age of three months. Although the danger is still low, as soon as your kid can walk, there is a greater likelihood that they may fall— whether it’s from bed or somewhere else.

In general, it has been observed that toddlers are more likely to hurt themselves by falling out of bed. Some of the children set the record for having fallen at least 10 to 12 times as children. Let’s start by talking about ways to stop your infant and toddler from falling out of bed. 

How to Stop Your Child from Falling Out of Bed?

  • Get your bed linked to a wall corner to change the location of your bed. 
  • At any open location, keep the mattress below the bed (Small size mattress will work). • Make sure you surround him with pillows and cushions and position him in the bed’s corner,  which should be secured to the wall. 
  • In the bedroom, never leave your youngster alone. 
  • If this is the case, your only alternative is to leave him alone. After that, place your infant in front of you on a floor mattress. Baby will be content to go about as you watch over him. • Keep the hard objects away from the bed. 
  • Teach your child to grab the bed sheet and get out of bed. You may demonstrate the procedure using her favorite doll or plaything. 
  • Be cautious while playing with the baby on the bed; don’t direct him to jump and come your way. 
  • Remove any tables and chairs that may hurt the infant if it were to fall. 
  • Always have a medical kit on hand in case of an emergency. 

How to Respond If a Baby Falls Out of Bed?

  • If a baby falls on its head, comfort the child first, then inspect the infant’s head for any signs of blood or lumps. 
  • Watch your infant’s behavior around the clock. 
  • Check to see whether your youngster is awake or asleep. 
  • The back and head should not have any edema.
