  • And by all means, stop and create a CM account before you call the pediatrician......

  • Call her Pediatrician & ask them their opinion first. Don't let her go to sleep for at least 3 hours. Keep her upright & awake. If she loses consciousness, vomits, pupils are dilated, seems lethargic then go to the ER ASAP!

  • What butterflyblue said. Also check her pupils to see if one is open more than the other. This could indicate a concussion.

  • As bad as this sounds, my baby fell down ten basement stairs when she was about one.. It was the scariest thing ever!!!! She had the biggest, ugliest goose egg ever! So I rushed her to the hospital. They said if she cries immediately, that is a good sign. Dont let her go to sleep for an hour and keep an eye on her. If she throws up or starts acting weird.. take her. It sounds like she is okay though! :)
