6mo Baby rolled from crawling to back and hit head w/hardwood floor and possibly door frame. Cried a bit, played, fed, fell asleep. Reason to go to ER?
Head: No, especially if the baby is acting fine. Watch for extreme irritability, vomiting in the first 4-12 hrs after any potential injury, and if so then ER.

My 21 month old hit head she fell while strapped in her booster seat her chair tipped over and fell back...Pretty sure she hit her head?
Look for Changes...: Look for changes in behavior. Children hit their heads often; most do very well after an accident. Crying in this case is good unless it is prolonged.

If vomiting does occur call your doctor or go directly to the er. ...Read more
2 yo hit head today. He acted & ate fine. This was 6 hrs ago. A little cranky. Now, he's hard to wake. He will but gets really mad & goes back to bed.
