Bumps On Baby Head
How long should it take for bump on a baby's head to go down after falling? Mine is 20 months old.
No: Babies learning to cruise and walk fall often, and bump their heads often. The skull is thick and designed to take those types of knocks. Unless she has suffered from serious head injuries causing loss of consciousness or requiring hospitalization, your baby and her iq are absolutely fine.

Lymph node: It's a lymph node.
