Of course this happened while my wife was out and I was babysitting. The baby threw up on me when I was burping her, so I took her upstairs so I could change my shirt. I thought she'd be safer coming with me than if I just left her alone, boy was I wrong. At the top of the steps she reached for a mirror on the wall and I turned my body to prevent her from getting it, but my feet forgot where they were. Next thing I knew I was at the bottom of the steps with the baby on top of me. Thank god she is okay. I am banged up and bruised and my back, neck, ankle and arm hurts like hell but no bones are broken. Luckily I didn't roll so my body absorbed all the shocks and the baby rode down on top of me. She even smiled at the bottom of the stairs when I asked if she was okay! I took off her clothes and looked for broken bones and bruises, found nothing. I checked her pupils for concussion symptoms but she seems to be fine. I guess my instincts took over and I protected the baby at the expense of my own body. I took all the hits, thank goodness. If any of you have babies, PLEASE be extra careful when carrying the baby up or down the stairs. Your balance is off and you can't see your feet as well. I'm not a clumsy person (I have never fallen down the stairs, and I never fall anywhere) so it could happen to anyone.
