Anxiety: I understand your worry about the 7 month old girl who fell. For over 9 years, she has been well. Please see pediatrician of the girl regarding her growth and development, and for any medical condition, she may have., and get treatment for that condition. After that, please see a therapist for your anxiety and stresses in your life.

Issues are evident: A kid with any issues that will eventually impair mental or physical function due to a head injury in infancy will show patterns of altered function as they grow.These become evident at 2-7yrs. Any issue arising after this age would require a search for problem unrelated to that event as any kid, fall or not, can develop issues later in life that arise from other origins.Relax ; enjoy.
