Last night was the first scary night I had with my 13 month old. She is such a little terror, climbing all over everything and you can see her little brain ticking over when she is deciphering the baby gate and how she can climb them with her toys

For the last couple of months I have been like a broken record with her climbing the couch. Finally last night, she discovered why she shouldn’t climb the couch. Over the side she went and landed face down with a massive thud. After 10 minutes of her crying and clinging to me for her dear life, loots of kisses and cuddles, and an inpection of her forehead. I discovered a large egg on her forehead.

I called 13 HEALTH and they were fantastic! They went through the checklist and felt so at ease after finishing the call. She woke up this morning such a happy little girl again. Laughing and playing, but still, we’ll have a nice quiet day of Disney moves just to keep an eye n her.

  • It can be very challenging with a little climber and runner in one package! lol!!! I had one 36 years ago!


  • Kids will be kids! All you can do is be there for them with lots of cuddles and kisses, when they dont listen x


  • Nurse on Call have been great!


  • lol kids love making people freakout lol


  • You can keep as much attention on them but they still hurt themselves.. arghh the stress


  • I know right?!! LOs are so making us freaking out…lol


  • Aren’t they a GREAT service? I’m sure they’ve saved the hospital where I live thousands of dollars due to worried mothers in the area bringing their little ones in after an accident. Love it.


  • Something that I have seen work in similar situations is getting an older kid to be his friend. You could talk to the school about it. A student from a much older grade say 5 or 6. Takes on a kindy to help settle in. They look out for them and have lunch with them. Get them into games and things going on. The older kid will be very proud of being responsible for someone. And the kindy then feels a bit more apart of things. Good luck. :-)
