My husband just elbowed my 1 year old in the face. Hard. He turned really fast. My son started crying but then went back to sleep. Is he okay??

If he has no purplish discoloration over the course of the next few hours then I wouldn't worry. If when he awakens he is really irritable and you can't calm him down I would have him see his doc. ...Read more
