My 7.5-month-old son has fallen quite a few times off the bed and couch in just the past month. He lands on the carpet, and fell down while asleep only once.
The people I live with are concerned about him having any head trauma. I can say my son is 28 inches in height and is taller than both, the bed and the couch. His reaction most of the times is a disappointed face that he has fallen and the other times he cries.
Personally, I believe in him being able to explore and discover trial and error, but the folks I stay with want me to hover over him every second of the day and make sure he doesn't bump or whack or hit his head.
My question is him falling from the couch and bed normal?
