The Danger And Solution To Overcome A 9-month Baby Falls From The Mattress In The Supine Position?
Hello, I want to ask .. I have a 9-month-old baby who just fell from a mattress with a height of 60cm with the position of falling on the back and the rear bump with a sharp cry. Is that dangerous? What should I do? Is the skull bone can be cracked? I was very worried. Please answer my question yes. thank you
Hi Opiee .. Thank you for the question.
Injury to the head can be caused by collisions, falls, or exposed to hard objects. Impact on the baby's head can not be considered trivial because the baby's head bones are not as hard as adults. Head collisions can cause head injuries both mild, moderate, and severe. If there are lumps on the head can be caused by a hematoma / blood buildup outside the blood vessels. This hematoma can recover by itself because the blood can be reabsorbed by the body. As parents must pay attention to children, for example children become more fussy, children weak and inactive, nausea, vomiting, seizures, difficulty eating and drinking. If there are these signs, then immediately check the child to the pediatrician or bring the child to the emergency room to get a direct examination and can be followed by X-ray head or MRI if necessary. In addition, some things that need to be done are: Avoid repeated collisions in children, you can compress the bump with a cold towel to reduce pain.
