It’s common for babies to hit their heads when they fall, and in most cases there’s nothing to worry about. If your baby loses consciousness, though, have him checked out by his doctor or by the doctor at the emergency room. Sometimes, even with a minor blow, the brain can be injured.
Also take your baby to a doctor right away if he hits his head and in the next day or two he:
• Is vomiting. It’s okay to have a bout of vomiting after a fall, but it shouldn’t persist.
• Seems unusually sleepy during the day or can’t be awakened at night. Try waking your baby a couple of times the first night after his fall, just to make sure you can.
• Seems weak or confused, or seems to have problems with coordination, vision, or verbal communication.
Can a concussion cause permanent brain damage?
Only in rare cases. But a second concussion before symptoms from the first one have cleared can be dangerous, possibly causing brain damage and even death. So if your baby has suffered a concussion that caused him to lose consciousness, your doctor will probably advise you to keep an extra-watchful eye on him for the next few weeks.
Should I let my baby fall asleep after he’s had a serious fall?
First of all, if your baby hits his head as a result of a major collision or a fall from any serious distance — he rolls off the changing table or falls down the stairs, for example — you should talk with his doctor. She’ll want to know the details of the accident and whether your baby lost consciousness, is excessively irritable or crying, or is vomiting or lethargic. She may tell you to bring him to the office or to the emergency room. If your toddler has had a little bump, though — he takes a tumble as he practices his walking or tips over from a seated position and taps his head on the floor or table, for example — you’ll just want to keep an eye on him for a while.
Many parents believe they need to keep their children awake after a serious fall to prevent a coma, but this is an old wives’ tale with no basis in reality. Actually, putting your baby down for a restorative nap after an emotional trauma like a scary fall can be comforting.
Of course, it’s still important to watch your baby closely for signs of problems, such as changes in color, difficulty breathing, or unusual drowsiness. It’s even a good idea to wake your baby up twice each night during the first two nights after a fall in which he hits his head, just to make sure you can. If he’s alert when you wake him up (well, as alert as a baby who’s been awakened can be), then it’s unlikely that the fall has caused any evolving problems, like bleeding in the brain.
If your baby seems overly groggy or lethargic, or if you’re worried for any reason, trust your instincts and call the doctor for advice. She may want to give him a quick checkup. If at any point you’re unable to wake your child, take him to the emergency room.
