Kids bump heads all the time falling. Mine just fell down just a couple of carpet stairs, alert and playing ok. What warning signs to look for?

In brief: Change in alertness.
You're right, kids bump their heads all the time.
Look for things like change in alertness, vomiting, just not acting right. Sometimes it takes a parent's instinct to know when there child is more lethargic or disoriented. But it sounds like your child fell down from a low height (even if it was down a couple stairs) and is doing just fine.
