4-month old bumped his head

My 4-month-old son rolled over and over again and bumped the back of his head on the floor. He cried for 2 minutes and has been fine since, laughing and smiling. He's about to go to sleep...should I be concerned? It's been 2 hours since it happened. Anyone else's little one's bump their heads? I feel so awful!!!

  • when my dd was like 5 weeks i accidentally fell asleep on the couch with her and she slid off my chest and onto the floor and even at her young age her doc said if she is concious, eating, and acting normal dont worry. since then she has bumped that little head quite a few time (shes 7 mos now) from learning to crawl and she is fine
