Monitor closely: If there was no loss of consciousness, no change in how the child is acting, no vomiting, then it is probably OK.

I have a 2 year toddler he gets on the bed every tym i turn my head he has fallen meny tyms how do I now wen to tak him to the hospital or dr?
Change in behavior: If he ever has a loss of consciousness for even a few seconds from a fall, take hi to the hospital. If after a fall he has a change in behavior within 12-24 hours...More aggressive or so lethargic i he is hard to wake up, take him to hospital. Usually a fall from a bed is not a big problem as it is not a far distance....And ultimately take him when ever you are worried. ...Read more
Is it true that if a toddler bumps his head pretty hard and there was some damage or concussion, symptoms would most likey show up within 4 hrs?
Watch for 8 hrs: It would be extremely unlikely to have significant bleeding, but watch for unusual sleepiness, difference in pupil size, nausea/vomitting. Concussions have variable presentation and symptoms can show up even after 12 hours. You know your child best, and can tell if there is anything worrisome going on. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My toddler often gets fevers of 101-ish just on his head. Is it weird that his body is "cool"(98-ish) while the forehead thermometer reads 101?
Not a true fever: When we have a fever, our whole body is hot. It's just easier to measure our temperature on our foreheads, mouths, or armpits. Your little guy is just releasing extra body heat out of the head. This is very normal; this is why we wear hats in the winter to keep the heat in, not lost to the environment. ...Read more
My toddler has lymph nodes on back of head. They feel like they are stuck together. I feel an indent between them but they move together. Normal?
Likely normal: Those nodes on the back of the head, the occipital nodes, service most of the scalp. So if your toddler has any scalp irritation, be it a little cradle cap to bug bites on scalp to irritation from too tight of braiding of hair, these nodes can enlarge and wax and wane in size. As long as they are not getting bigger...Bigger...Bigger, and are not red/hot/very tender, they can be watched. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do u know if a toddler needs glasses? My 2.5 will sometimes tilt his head down & look through his lashes & hold toys/ipad very close to face
Excessive sweating of a toddler while at sleep. and cold to touch, starting from his head down to back. what's the real problem?
Sweating at night: Children's heads have a large surface area and they sweat to dissipate heat. If he is an active sleeper and wears a one-piece sleeper, is covered with a blanket, he may be sweating from the heat generated by his moving around. His head would have the most sweat then. If he is completely normal otherwise, it is not a problem. Double check that with your pediatrician next time you see him/her. ...Read more
