Question by  Topaz (46)

What should I watch for after my baby hit his head?

He fell over while sitting and banged his head on the floor. He has a bump.

Just make sure his level of conscious doesn't change. If he starts throwing up or acts like he's in pain, notify his doctor.

Generally most babies are quite durable when it comes to getting a bump on the head but watch for any behavior changes or lack of alertness. Consult your doctor.

Drowsiness and lethargy are the main things. Do not let him sleep for at least an hour afterwards. Also watch for irritability and inconsolable crying.

Make sure that your baby can follow you with his eyes, this will help you know that he is "all there". If not, take him to a doctor.
