My son is 1 year old and I have had three accidents with him. One time I was going over a curve on a side of the street and he wasn't buckled into his stroller properly and he started to fall out. I caught him but not in time for his lip to get a bruise from hitting a the tray part of his stroller. Second time I was making his lunch and I didn't put his high chair tray on correctly & he pushed it off and fell to the floor. Nothing was wrong with him he just got really scared & cried a lot. Third time happened last week I left him on the changing table while I grabbed a shirt from the closet and he rolled off the table onto the floor. He cried so hard I started to cry. He bit his lip & had a cut. I feel like a horrible mother & the guilt of these three accidents are eating me alive. It has caused me not to sleep at night. All I do is constintly think of these horrible accidents & how come I didn't prevent them from happening. Has anyone else felt this way? I don't know what to do to get over it...Am I really a horrible mother?
