...Falling down

My 15-month-old baby fell down the stairs.

It was about 6-7 steps, between the top of the stairs and onto the middle platform. He was crying a lot.

He lost one tooth on the bottom row.

God tests us in many ways.  

God says in the Quran, "Indeed, your wealth and children are but a trial (64:15)."

Alhamdulillah, Glory to God, it was not anything worse. The pediatrician said children can have a seizure following a hard fall. They can also break limbs.

But God has saved us from that anguish. Alhamdulillah.

Please keep him in your prayers.

Asalaamu Alaikum

May Allah protect him. Amin. Alhumdullilah its just a baby tooth. Was it inside stairs or outside stairs? If inside I hope you get a gate.

It was inside stairs...and yes we have two gates but they weren't up at the time.

He usually doesn't go past two stairs.

Sometimes God makes things happen for a reason. (to learn a lesson)

He's okay. He was dancing at the doctors office and Inshallah his tooth grows back.

My prayers are with you and your son.

As parents we are so conscious that we have to protect our babies, but they are not as fragile as we imagine and we learn from the owies they get.

Last week my husband locked my son in the car, car running, and we had to wait for about 30 minutes (felt like 30 days) before the locksmith came and unlocked the door. We always have these moments as parents, but we do the best we can, the best we know, and they will survive and be stronger in the end because of it!
