4 doctors agree

In brief: 8-12 weeks

Each child is different.
Some kids recover fast and some take a little more time. They should do an x-ray a few days down the road to make sure she is healing properly. I'm hoping they did a cat scan when it happened to make sure she didn't have any bleeding in her brain which is somewhat common after a skull fracture.Good luck.
