Q.

worried

My 7 week old baby fell out the car seat onto the car''s back seat carpet when it tipped over in grandmom''s car. He had a fright and cried a little but settled down quickly. He was fine but two days later he cried a lot at home but I am not sure if he was just over tired because he is not used to travel a lot in his carseat and grandma travelled a lot with him to shops and family. She feels terrible. I do not see any bumps and she says he was on his back when she picked him up from the fall. He also had thick close on.

Your baby would have started earlier with any worrying symptoms such as constant crying,vomiting, drowsiness and refusing to feed.he does not have any sign of an injury. Your baby seems to be fine and he may have been a bit overtired 2 days after the fall.
