so today at walmart my 2 yr old DD was in the basket of the shopping cart (my mistake she obviously should have been buckled in the seat! i already know!) and she flipped out of it head first. she has a red mark and a small bump on her forehead now. she cried for like 30 seconds and then she was ok, walking, talking, laughing, totally normal. should i take her to ER? what is the general protocol when this happens? she's acting like nothing happened, but i'm still worried. please no bashing (i already understand what a mistake i made), i just need advice!Answer Question

I'm not saying it's the same but I would treat her like you would if she fell out of the crib. Pay close attention to her. A cold wash cloth to help with the redness and swelling. She should be okay. Let us know in a few days how she is.
