Baby’s Head Has Fallen.
Doc, I want to ask. My child’s age is 2 months 3 weeks. This was the head of my cell phone when I was breastfeeding. What should I do, doc? Check it straight away or what, doc? Thank you.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain how hard the impact is (certainly different if the HP falls from a height of 10 cm by 1 meter)? Do you see a very large wound or bump on the head? Does the baby experience certain annoying symptoms?
If the HP only falls from a low height, then you don't need to worry too much. The baby's brain is protected by hard skull bones so that a mild collision will not cause certain disturbances to the baby. If you don't see a large lump on the baby's head or the skull bones are felt sunken inward where the collision occurs, the baby does not experience certain symptoms such as decreased consciousness, convulsions, protruding fontanel, baby becomes sleepless and difficult to wake up or becomes very fuss, or other neurological symptoms, you also don't need to worry too much.
If you see a large lump on the baby's head, or you feel an abnormal hollow in the baby's head, or if the baby has symptoms such as those mentioned above, then you can take your baby to the hospital for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
