  • signs for concusion are dizziness, unstability, lathargic, throwing up. ect. u can let her sleep, but u need to wake her every two hrs. depending on where she hit her head, she should be okay

  • A bump out is a good sign. Did you check her eyes - are you getting even response when she looks at things (both eyes moving together) are her pupils normal etc...

    She's probably fine - mine cracks her head 100 times a day the little daredevil...I'd just keep and eye on her to be sure but you're likely ok

  • If she didn't pass out and she is acting like her normal self then she should be fine. Falls happen. My 2 year old recently jumped off a chair in his room and onto his brother's bed and fell and hit the wall. He tried it again less than 5 minutes later even though he had a huge bump on his head.
