Yes, it's a horrible one isn't it? My dd is cruising now, and falls around six or seven times a day and somehow usually manages to hit her head. Don't know how!!:) All us concerned Mums can really only put mats on our hard floors and let them learn how to stay up. Hard work!!

Mine is walking with fingers. Every once in a while he will take a couple steps on his own. He is falling a lot and hitting his head on everything. Sometimes he'll just be sitting and fall over backwards. So far the only scare was when he stood and fell out of the high chair. (He manages to get out of the straps which are pretty tight.)

Yep all the time! My little man has started trying to go from our coffee table to the couch and has done many face plants!! We have 2 brick steps in our loungeroom which he is brilliant at climbing up however, he has just started trying to get down - although throwing himself and tumbling down are his preferred methods!! There are always a few tears but a quick kiss and a cuddle seems to send him on his way and he hasn't yet been scared off trying to walk thank goodness! I think this will go on for a quite a while whilst they start to walk too so bumps and bruises I think will get more frequent unfortunately!!

Can you see my profile pic? That is his most recent fall, right smack into the corner of the wall. It's been almost 2 weeks and it still looks that bad!

my goober does....she loves to crawl and is just starting to stand on her own but when she crawls and we play chase with her she always gets these cute hyper burst where she will crawl really fast but then crawl too fast for herself and slip and go face straight to floor course she ends up laughing about it and continues going

I'm pretty sure my son's head is just naturally attracted to anything near it. He will just be sitting close to a wall and without warning you hear "thump" and it will be him falling over into the wall or anything else nearby.

my daughter loves to go under the coffee table, and theres a metal bar that goes around under it, and she'll bang her head against that trying to get under or out from under the table. but after a couple days of that, she finally learned to duck her head down when shes crawling under it. and for the most part, she falls on her bum when she falls from standing.

Tristan bumps his head all the time. he's not walking yet, but when he pulls up on something (especially the sliding glass door) and lets go, he's not too steady yet on his feet and he'll fall into whatever it is. lately he's figured out to fall on his butt tho.

I've had it happen with both my kids. It seems like everytime my 11 month is near something and walking or standing fine, he falls and bumps his head on it. Same thing with my daughter when she was that age. As long as he isn't hurt I try not to worry about it.( I worried to much with my daughter) I kiss it and tell him he'll be ok. I think they do it to keep up on our toes and keep us worrying, lol =) I try to remember he is still learning to walk.

Kota's not walking yet, but he still manages to hit is head constantly. He's be crawling just fine one minute and then *bam* faceplant into the floor. Or he'll be sitting down and just fall over into the wall. Or i'll be holding him and he'll get wiggly and throw himself back and sometime's theres a wall involved then too.

My child's head is a wall-magnet....
