My Brothers Girlfriend Dropped My Baby And I'm Not Sure What To Do About Her
've only known her for a little while but she seemed nice enough so I let her hold my baby boy for a little while. She was standing in the kitchen with my brother and I just talking. My baby threw up on her face and her reaction was to scream and throw her hands up in front of her face! Of course by doing that she dropped him and he fell on the kitchen floor. I was totally shocked as I swooped down to see if he was ok. Meanwhile my brothers gf jumps over us and sticks her face into the sink to clean up. I was so angry! After I realized the baby was ok I turned and shouted at her and she just cowered in the corner like she was scared of me and started crying.
Now I realize it was an accident and it wasn't like she threw him down on purpose to be mean but still... God I'm still upset. He could have been seriously injured just because she had a little throw up on her face! I have never seen anyone so grossed out by a babys bodily fluid that they actually let go of the baby and run around screaming!! Like, what is wrong with her mentally?? She did apologize and after a while I told her it was ok even though I was still upset because the girl is sensitive. My brother was pretty upset too and he helped me pick up my son off the floor.
I really fear for her future kids.. Is she gonna do the same thing if they vomit/poop/pee on her??? That stuff is gonna happen if you have a baby!! I just can't stop beating myself up over letting that girl hold him in the first place. I feel like a horrible mother now and that it was really my fault. My father said I should press charges. Do you think that would be going to far? Any advice would be great. Thanks!
