3 Months Baby’s Head Hit The Elbow?
. Is it dangerous if the front of the head near the forehead hit the elbow in a 3 month baby?
Hi Renata, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The baby's head is basically covered with tough skull bones, although they are not yet as hard and strong as those of adults. In some parts of the skull bones are not completely fused (in the crown areas) to facilitate the enlargement and development of the baby's brain.
A light impact on the baby's head (for example hitting the elbow, or falling when the baby is learning to stand or walk) basically will not cause serious injury or disturbance to the baby's brain. However, make sure your baby is always in a safe place so as not to fall from a height (for example, falling out of the bed), and not to shake the baby roughly. Hard bumps and shaking the baby roughly can still cause injury to the baby's brain.
If your baby has certain symptoms after the impact (for example, there are large bumps and bruises at the impact site, decreased consciousness, the baby becomes more fussy and difficult to calm, vomits), take the baby to the hospital immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
