Hi Syifa .. Thank you for the question.
Children who fall, especially if there is a loud impact on the head needs to get the attention of parents. A hard head collision can result in a head injury. Head injuries are mild, moderate, and severe. Minor head injuries are characterized by confusion, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and easy drowsiness. If the head injury is moderate and severe then there are signs and symptoms such as: loss of consciousness / fainting within minutes to hours, nausea, continuous vomiting, hands and feet weak or stiff, convulsions, fluid coming out through the nose or ears, there is a change in behavior.
If your child shows signs like a child becoming more fussy, or the child becomes weak and inactive, changes in appetite, nausea and vomiting occur continuously, there is a wound on the head so you should immediately check the child to the pediatrician or bring the child to the emergency room. So the doctor can do a direct examination and if necessary also can be taken head X-ray or CT Scan to support the diagnosis.
Meanwhile, what can be done is:
Protect the child's environment to prevent the child from falling back, can keep the floor always dry, or install a window trellis Keep providing food and drink according to the needs of children Hopefully useful
