So yesterday I was straightening my hair with my 12 month old playing on the bed next to me, everything was going fine and he was quite entertained playing with his toys. After I had finished with my hair I turned off my straighteners and put them down on the floor, whilst I was getting up to put everything away, my 12 month old had dashed off the bed behind me and crawled round to my straighteners. He reached out for them and I noticed, quickly saying NO and going to move him away but he was too quick and put his hand on them! We went down to emeregency and he had burnt all his palm and a little one on his wrist. I was told it wasn’t as bad as it could have been but he is now bandaged up and we have to return to the burns clinic in a week to check the healing progress. This was the most horrible situation to be in as he was in so much pain and whilst in the ambulance he was being given medication through his nose to calm him down and help with the pain. I have beaten myself up about this so much as I feel like the worst parent but thank you to the lovely hospital staff they reassured me that accidents can happen and little ones can just be too fast!! I know for sure that from now on I will be extremely careful with my little man!
