  • The Doctors rule of thumb is that if the knot pops out then it is a good sign. When it's really time to worry is when the knot sinks in instead of popping out. As long as he isn't vommitting or lethargic then It hink he is fine.

  • Check him every couple of hours just to make sure he can be awaken. Doctors usually say to not let your children sleep afterwards. If he doesn't respond, he will need to go to the ER.
