  • she should be fine if she is acting normal. She might have cried that long because you probably scared her when you fell.

  • Oh, what a horrible thing for you to have to deal with! I'd be worried too! I'm sure she's fine, but definitely keep an eye out if she starts getting lethargic, seems to have head or neck pain, cries more than normal, etc. Mention it to her doctor on Monday if you are still worried and she's showing no signs of distress. The doctor might just want you to come in to give your little girl a check-up just to be on the safe side.

  • she is fine!!!!! she's 4 months which means her neck is strong enough to support her head. you would only have to worry if she was a newborn. she cried cause she was scared, not hurt

  • I agree with the others, she was probably just scared. As long as she is acting like her normal self she is probably just fine :)

  • I would take her to a chiropractor. I"m sure she's fine, but I took DS to see a chiropractor starting @ 3 weeks anyway.
