OMG! I'm so nervous about my babygirl trying to walk and falling hard

My babygirl is 10 months young and has been walking around the house while I hold her hand (she completely skipped the crawling phase lol) She is able to stand in place on her own for a while and then holds my hand to start walking again. At times she tries to let go of my hand to walk on her own but I'm soooo scared to let go because she loses her balance and starts falling backwards (I catch her of course). I bought a safety helmet for her to help prevent injury but also to try to help me "let her go". I just can't do it!! Help mommas!!

It’s hard seeing our babies fall and hurt themselves, but they learn as they go. My 18 month old still constantly falls and gets hurt. Just today he fell face first on concrete and busted his bottom lip (no chipped teeth thankfully, but did have a mouth full of blood). Even when she starts walking, some accidents are unpreventable. She’ll be okay :)

Definitely hard to see our babies fall but it’s part of the process, I, too bought my son a helmet(thudguard-from Amazon)which has saved him but also makes him more fearless and he just crawls and explores his way thru the house.

Bought my son a velcro safety helmet from amazon, best decision I ever made.

them falling over now isn’t bad, it will teach them that it hurts when they’re older 💕, but for peace of mind try a walker?
