  • Is there a knot? I would take him in just to be on the safe side....

  • No..he's probably fine..my dd was the worst about falling on a wet tile floor and hitting her head..just watch him carefully to make sure he didn't hit too hard (like giving himself a concussion)..but more than likely he'll be fine.

  • Watch him closely and don't let him fall asleep for an hour. Try to distract him so he doesn't fall asleep. He COULD have a concussion. My daughter has fallen a lot too and she's okay. Just keep a close eye on him.

  • If the baby hit their head hard you need to go get them checked out!! They can not talk to tell you if it hurts or if they are feeling weird or whatever so go to the ER, it is better to be safe than sorry!

  • If he threw up I would definitly take him. My 2 y/o fell the other day when I was mopping, scared me to death but he only cried for about a minute and was fine. If he kept crying like that and vomited then he should be checked out for sure.

  • I wouldn't take him just yet. Is he responding well? Dont let him fall asleep though. Put a ice pack on his hickey and f it does not go down then i would suggest he go to the dr.
