could it be broke?

i dropped my cell phone on my 2 month old baby's face and didn't know where it landed bc it was dark. but now, the bone in between his eyes (top of his nose) is yellowish blue lookin, like it is bruised and it feels like there is a hump there. i feel soo bad!!! could it be broke? or cause other problems, like sinuses or somethin?

  • Did you dab baby's face with ice when you realized you were reaching for your cell on your baby's head??

    Give your doc a call just to be safe.

  • i would take him the dr. its really hard for baby bones to break but to be safe i would take it if its bruised like that.

  • Put some ice on his face, you probably just gave him a goose egg. Babies are very resistant to injuries.

  • The bone above his nose and between his eyes is his SKULL or cranium. Dropping a cell phone from what--2 feet away--on that spot is not going to give him a skull fracture! He just has a bruise...the colors are formed by bleeding under the skin. The colors may change, but it will all go away in a week or two.
