BABY FELL FROM BED

My Baby fell from the bed this morning. It scared me so badly that i can' t stop thinking about him. My baby is seven months old. I am really worried about him. Please give me your advice on what I need to watch out for if he hurt himself.

You do not say if he fell on his head or on his arm or whether he seemed to fall on any other part of his body. If he fell on his head you must be alert for drowsiness, any vomiting, refusal to eat or any unusal jerky movements of his arms and legs.
