Hi. Must i be concerned? My 19 month old baby, was sleeping on the bed + fell off. We have tiles. I got such a big fright, must i be worried? She cried for awhile, couldnt show me where there was sore + then went back to sleep.

This question is always difficult to answer especially as I cannot see your baby. Most times when a baby falls off a bed surprisingly littlel harm occurs. The danger signs to look out for include drowsiness, vomiting, food refusal and irritability. If any of these occur and you are concerned please take your baby to be examined by a doctor.
