I have a 1 and a half year old and she's always jumping on me and stuff is my baby going to be ok do any of you have other kids that were rough on you?

My 4yo is still jumping all over me. And hitting and kicking my bump. (SN) I have been reassured that baby is fine and healthy in there.

I think that there is an awful lot of "padding" to get through, and that it hurts us on the outside more than the baby, who is truly well protected in there.

Agree with FrustratedSycamoresRocks

But you do realise your thread title could be taken a completely different way....i was very worried for a minute....wink

Yes, I read it the wrong way too Dawn.

It's fine. Ds1 (severe SN) was 5 when I was pregnant with ds3. He used to use my bump as a stepladder to try & look over fences (ds3 thinks this is very funny) & was know to headbutt it hard at times when very angry. There's lots of padding, the baby is well protected & I don't think a small child could hit you hard enough to do damage.

My sons 16 months and went through a stage of headbutting always seemed to get my belly, baby's fine all tucked away nicely!

He now uses my bump as a seat which can't be much more pleasant for baby bump!

My dd uses it as a seat too locket definitely better in her eyes than a hip seat
