I never used to be scared of anything coming ahead in life… but now when I have my baby, every little thing makes me think of so many vague scary things….. a picture on the wall…. I feel that might fall off when my baby is below it…. Oh dear…its been hanging there for 8 months….. why will it fall now ??? I am getting so over protective for my LO…. how should I control these feelings… ?

  • Just chill, it will all fall into place in your head – I don’t remember hearing of any kids suffering injuries or death due to falling pics, etc in the news…. do you? Count your blessings and live babe… If shit is going to happen it will happen x


  • Take a nice deep breathe and laugh it off =) Just reassure yourself, and if need be, get your partner/hubby to reassure you!!


  • IT HAPPENS! the home is full of dangers but try to minimise these, baby proof and relax. If this becomes an obsession, then you should get some help. You can’t protect baby from everything or they will never learn

    • supervision is the best child-proofing as well
      don’t stress hon!


  • Its ok to feel that way you are just trying to kiddy safe your house. With all the warnings around it hard not to be overprotective.

    • Good point mom56312 – it is instinctive too.


  • It is normal to be protective and have these feelings.
