ds just fell about a foot and landed on his spine/tailbone and didn't really cry - is he really ok?

my ds is 2.5 yrs old and just fell about a foot in the bathroom and landed on our plastic bath stool/storage bin. he didn't really cry, but the area is red. since he's running around and active as normal, i dont think i should worry, should i? i just freaked out a little because he landed right on his spine/tailbone. thank goodness the stool has a rounded edge and is plastic, and he didn't really fall too far...

  • i wouldn't worry too much. kids that age are rubbery and resilient. just keep an eye on it for swelling and watch him to make sure he doesn't start acting as if in pain - the inflammation may take a while to affect him - may hurt more after sleeping from being still.
