  • I'm sure she's fine. I can't tell you how many times I've rushed my LO's to the ER in panic mode, only to be told that they were fine. Eventually they gave me a paper with all the things that prompt an ER visit. lol.

  • I'd ice it, she should be fine, little ones are tanks, built for the bumps and bruises normally aquired while they master that walking trick. I don't know why but when my kids get head injuries they show really quick and dramatic but always heal.

  • My personal philosophy is that anything that compromises the integrity of their eyes needs to be seen by a doctor immediatelly but if she's acting normal and isn't vomiting, crying uncontrollably, or acting unnaturally tired she should be fine.
