JB keeps falling

My DD keeps standing up holding onto anything (chair, couch,toys) . She is pretty good at standing up but occasionally slips and falls while trying to reach for something. I feel like every time she falls she hits her head. I am a nervous wreck everytime it happens but I don't know how I can really prevent it. Is my JB the only one who keeps falling and hitting her head?!

Dont worry they have super hard heads lol.Raf bangs his head every single day often numerous times he has a permenant bruise between his eyes lol.
I used to think about getting my kids crash helmets I swear they are the clumsiest on the planet!

Ean isn't even pulling himself up to a stand yet, but he certainly knows how to bonk his head :) Good thing he is made of sterner stuff than his big brother or it would be crazy in this house! lol

V is constantly bonking her head. They are just at that age! V sleeps with us, and we actually took the breathwble bumper from the crib (which we didn't set up this time) and put it on the headboard! she's constantly tipping over in bed so we figure any cushion helps!

They have hard little heads! Try not to worry too much.

One of mine learned how to crawl up the steps to my bed today and as I was trying to get a pic (because thats what good moms do, get a pic before making sure they are safe) she fell backwards and hit her head on the wall.
