My daughter (13 months)got wacked by the corner of a door and a huge goose egg popped out . I wasnt there at the time but my SIL brought her downstairs to me and I started freaking out because I have never seen something like that. it looks like its about to pop. after a few mins it went down a little and she got really tired and is sleeping now. my MIL says its no big deal, whats your opinion? Should I get her looked at ?Has this happend to your child and what was the outcome. I am so worrieed and scared :(
you need to put ice on it wrapped in a towel..itll go away and its no big deal...just make sure you cool it even if shes asleep.
I wouldn't worry too much. My kids have had all kinds of bruises and bumps. i wouldn't let her sleep just yet though. Try and keep her up for a bit.
The only time a bump/fall is serious is if your LO starts vomiting/slurring their words or stumbling around. If she isn't doing any of that then she's most likely okay.
my mom used to put a cold spoon on these bruises..that also helps
where did it hit her at i hope she doesnt have a concusion.
Bumps out are okay, keep it cool and just watch her for confusion for the next 24 hours or so. Bumps in (depressions) are what you have to worry about.
