Does anyone else laugh when their baby bumps thier head or falls?

Whenever my baby does an "OOPS!" i never run and comfort her. i smile or laugh at her and she forgets the pain and goes on with her day. Of course if she really is hurt i will go get her. but i dont want her to think she needs attention every time she has an accident. is this a good way of handling it? I just think its funny that everytime she bumps her head on the wall or does a face plant she looks at me first to see how im going to react and then she makes her reaction based on mine. haha

Well me being the goofy person I am I usually will laugh at anyone when they fall lol but I did the same thing with my daughter! She's 5 now & tough as nails.. I think it definitely depends on how you react to something they will either think it's no biggy or they will freak out if you do... So there's nothing wrong at all with having a little laugh! :)

Of course! Like you say, they react based on your reaction. If you freak out they'll think there's a reason to be upset. You don't want them having a big waa over every little bump. Maybe not laughing though, just an 'uh oh' or 'oopsie'.
