Rough toddler with newborn!
Looking for some advice/reassurance! Not sure if I'm being an overly protective, paranoid first time mum or if I have a legitimate reason to worry!!
My best friend is coming over to see our 5 week old baby and is bringing her toddler along. Her little girl obviously means no harm but is extremely rough with newborns (we have mutual friends with babies). She'll want to cuddle them and then suddenly switch to literally smacking them in the face. My friend tries her best to control her but obviously accidents happen. My friend will want to hold the baby and that's what worries me, as I won't be in control!!
Its a bit of a sensitive topic as my friend gets quite upset and down about her toddler being a bit out of control, and really does do everything she can to avoid such situations.
So I guess my question is, can a toddler do any substantial damage to a small baby?! And I guess it's something I can't avoid/shouldn't cancel? I suffer from clinical anxiety and I literally can't stop worrying about this!
