Many parents will agree that when their children were toddlers, the most challenging part was to see them take their first steps. Repeated falls as they were not able to balance their weight was a common sight. Parents would walk behind them ready to catch them before they fall the next time to prevent them from getting hurt. At the same time, some parents also feel that falling is a part of growing up and learning to do it the right way. So there is no need to worry as there are no serious consequences. They may even say that, as toddlers they had fallen many times but never broke a bone or hurt themselves badly.
The fact is that broken bones of babies heal faster compared to adults. What should be our concern is the effect of a hard fall or bump on the babies' head which probably may not show even through a scan. But can we be certain that the impact or vibrations due to the fall has not affected their ability to learn or grasp things as normal children or any such long terms implications that can affect them for the rest of their lives?

As concerned parents, we should ask ourselves what are we doing or what can we do to protect our babies giving them the freedom to learn and explore their new surroundings. Primarily we should never leave them unattended. But again that does not mean that we can guarantee that they will not fall or get hurt. The next thing as parents, we would baby proof our homes making sure all furniture with sharp edges are moved to the corners or better still put foam or rubber to cover the edges, use foam mats to reduce the impact of a fall and so on. After all this, babies still manage to hurt themselves. Do you agree?
So why not bring the protection to where it matters the most? The baby's head of course. Have you heard of Baby Helmets? It's the talk on the net not just the town these days.
