Baby fell from bed

Hi Doc,

My Baby fell from the bed with the head last night. She cried for a while then i gave her panado and she slept. Should i be concerned?? What should i look out for to see if she' s not ok. She' s still a baby of 7 months ad cant talk yet.

Thanx Doc

Thank you all for the advice. I have been checking with my mom to monitor the baby if she' s ok. So far there is no vomiting and drowsyness and she is eating. So i guess she is fine.

Thank you all for your Advice

For future references never let baby sleep after a fall especially one involving baby' s head!

Also check for vomiting!
Babies are strong, much more than we think they are, I hope your baba is all ok!

You should just check for the next 48 hours if she is drowsy all the time and check her eyes to see if pupils contract and dilate when in light. Also check she has resistance when you push her head forward.
