DS is pulling up and I was taking a bath while DH was in the living room talking to my dad and watching him. He was holding on to the side of the couch and fell and hit the front of his head. There is no bruising or signs of injury physically but he has been crying and whining a lot since then but then again he was fussy prior to that too. He's been not so happy today but he was worse after he hit his head.
I've heard all babies will do it and it's normal as long as they don't appear or seem to be in pain but I don't even know if he is crying because of that or because of something else. Is there anything serious that can happen if a baby bumps their head? It was on carpet.
Would you take them to the doctor or ER for it or wait and see if it's something like teething, constipation or visible signs of an ear ache? I gave him some baby Tylenol because I thought it might be a head ache from the fall.
