  • If she seems ok she probably is. If she had a serious injury she would be acting out of character but that is my opinion only...I'm not a medical professional but I am the mother of 18 month old of whom bangs his head off EVERYTHING ;) Keep an eye on her even when she's sleeping and if you're still worried tomorrow, get her checked at the doc's. GL momma :)

  • If she starts acting strange, convulsing, really sleepy & can't stay awake. google concussion symptoms or webmd & keep an eye out. otherwise all kids hit their head! I remember when my brother fell out of our battery operated car onto the concrete & split his head open & we had to take him to the er for stiches...he doesn't & he was 7!

  • arg my son just his his head (forehead) on the corner of the coffee table and i called the dr and the nurse told me to watch out for if he gets a headache, if he is talking funny or acting funny, not eating, if there are any fluids coming out of his nose or ears, that sort of thing. she said the reason why they get such huge lumps on their head and so fast is because the head is very vascular and that just means that alof of blood travels there very often...i think lol. anyway i just kept an eye on him for a couple of hours befor i was comfortable enough to put him down for a nap. these kids just keep you on your toes lol
