  • if something was truly wrong, you would KNOW. as long as baby is eating, playing, making normal sounds, and seems to be fine, its likely that she is fine.

    as long as she does not lose consciousness, become disoriented, begin vomiting, have trouble breathing... she'll be just fine. concussions are a rare thing from simply bonking her head. put some ice on it- or a bag of frozen peas.

  • Nope... she is just fine. Babies are very resilient. If you were looking at something serious, you would have noticed drastic changes right way, such as being tired, confused, etc..

  • the first good sign u want is for her to cry. if she isnt throwing up i wouldnt worry. just dont let her go to sleep for at least 2 hours just to be safe.

  • If she isn't showing any signs of complications, then there isn't anything to worry about. I wouldn't follow angelairelan's advice, because there's no need to go to extremes if she isn't showing any signs of complications. She only bumped her head. Believe me, I understand your worry, but it's natural for children to get bumped and bruised and be perfectly fine. Keep an eye on her, but other then that take a deep breath and relax.
