In brief: It depends
First, what compartment was the blood in - subarachnoid, subdural, intraparenchymal (in the brain itself), intraventricular? Second, how much blood and what was the cause and what level or care did the child receive? Answers to these predict a range of lt effects from none to seizures to cognitive and/or comportmental abnormalities to hydrocephalus.
And any of these issues can range in severity.

In brief: Yes and No
Infants with brain bleeds fall into several categories from mild to severe.
The mildest form can have no long term effects but severe forms usually have long term effects.
