@SamanthaLovesJames: Don’t let people make you feel bad for being concerned. You’re a mom, of course you care about your daughter. You asked a question because you weren’t sure, so you don’t need to be crucified for it!

Like PPs have said, I’m sure your daughter is fine and I’m glad that she is 🙂

@Hyperventilate:  A wrench?! On purpose? Surely not!

OP, I agree with all PP’s. Chill out! I’m sure she’s fine.

@Miss_Words:  Oh, it definitely wasn’t on purpose. My father was a stay-at-home dad and a jack of all trades. He had a machine chop, a computer shop, he installed satellite dishes (The huge ones, not the tiny direct TV ones), he repaired stuff for people, and when I was a kid I was his little helper. He was fixing a satellite dish (He had one of these: http://www.autobodytoolmart.com/otc-giant-adjustable-36-wrench-7641-p-14887.aspx?gclid=CMLr-P_wnrkCFbCDQgodIm0AHw ) and I peered around him to see what he was doing. The wrench slipped and flew off the nut, and directly into my head. 

Clocked me pretty good, I was black and blue and sore all over for a very long time. I didn’t even suffer a concussion. Just a really sore bump on the head.

My mother freaked out when she saw my head later that day, but that’s the curse of having a curious “helper” child. From then on, my dad gave me the task of “Flashlight holder.” Even if it was at noon daylight, I stood in front of him holding the flashlight “so he could see.”

When My baby was a week old, I was carrying him in one of those carriers that you put on your chest and I tripped and fell on the sidewalk. I was very worried that I hurted him so I took him to the doctor, (emergency) (I was bawling like a baby myself haha)  who told me that children are bouncy and they are resisitant little people. I can understand your worrying about your baby because I am in your boat.  But I think your daughter is just fine and will be okay. Smile

@SamanthaLovesJames:  Honestly, I’d be super annoyed with my SIL if she elbowed my baby, but that has more to do with the fact that I don’t like her so it’d just give me another reason to not like her… I was reading in my baby book once (I’m the baby of 4) – my mom had the following entries, “6 weeks old, April dropped 5lb can of honey on baby’s head”, “8 weeks old, April stepped on baby’s head.” My sister is 27 months older then me – Gee mom where were you when my sister was trying to kill me? I seem to have turned out fine, but still, 2 attacks from my sister?!

Okay way over reaction, believe me there will be hell of lot of worse things happen throught your child’s life than being accidently bumped in the head. 

Just wait til she becomes a toddler, they are accident prone! Said as a mother of an almost 2 year old!

Totally normal to be concerned since this is your child, but she will be find if she didn’t wake up and isn’t fussing. SIL didn’t do it intentionally.
