My 8 yo knocked my 1 yo down...

She was playing around swinging a pillow and he walked behind her she knocked him down right on to his head. He started screaming loud like pain screaming of course. I picked him up and he stopped screaming but more like a whimper that was over an hour ago and he is still kind of whimpering should I take him to the ER?

  • I always lean on the side of safety. My answer would be yes, I would take him.

  • Only you know your son. If you did not find a goose egg or anything like that after his fall, he is not throwing up, or staggering he is most likely fine. However, you are the only one that knows him, so if you think that he is acting strangely and that there might be something wrong taking him in might make you feel better. Only you can make that decision. Good luck and I hope that if you do take him in that you are able to leave your daughter at home... as late as it is... to make things easier for you.
