I have a 10 week old and a 3 year old. The baby was in his chair, and my older child tripped and fell onto the baby - he put his hand out to stop is fall and landed with his hand on the baby's nose, quite hard. The baby cried for about 10 minutes, really screaming, then I put him onto the breast, he fed for a while and now seems fine. His nose doesnt seem to be swelling or anything and he's maintaining eye contact and smiling. Should I be worried do you think? Also, any tips on how to deal with the elder who is very upset that he hurt his brother and is very subdued - I'm afraid I shouted at him due to the shock I think. I've given him cuddles and told him I know it was just an accident but I feel awful for shouting at him.
