My four year old bumped his head and has a big goose egg.

He fell back and hit the back of his head on the edge of my rocking chair and got a big goose egg. He continued to play and eat and act normal after the tears stopped. My husband said he was fine, he didn't hit it that hard, but here I am, sitting up, watching him sleep. I am such a worrier it is ridiculous. What is your experience with noggin bumps?

Poor little guy!  My ds is accident prone I swear!  The boy climbs on everything!  Dh's best friend taught ds to climb the walls in the hallway.  Ds will put his arms and legs out and shimmy up the wall.  He was showing Papa and he fell and hit his head on the vent for the heater.  He ended up with a big egg on his head, but was trying to get away to go back and play as we were trying to make sure he was ok.  We took him in to make sure he was alright and everything checked out just a big old egg on his head.

My almost 3 year old bumped his head the other night and had a big knot from it. I've read as long as the person injured didn't lose consciousness, get severe nausea and/or vomiting, have trouble walking/lose balance they should be fine. Those are 3 symptoms of a concussion. I still went and checked on him every couple hours after keeping him up a little extra before bedtime. If he was acting normally I wouldn't worry too much :-)

My dd fell backwards and hit her head on the entertainment center. She was fine. She was also running and fell and hit her forehead right down the center on the corner of the dresser. Again she was fine.

 Lol, I laugh because my son does the SAME thing. It drives me nuts.

 Thanks, I figure he probably is fine. I wish he hadn't done it right before bed. smile
