The Impact Of A 1 Year Old Child’s Head Is Often Bumped?
Hello Eva, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Mild impact even if it occurs repeatedly will not have any impact on children. Although a child's skull is not as strong as an adult's, the child's skull is hard enough to protect the brain inside. Around the brain there is also brain fluid which also functions to protect the brain from damage due to light collisions. Lumps on the forehead can occur due to injury to the soft tissue outside the skull (bruising under the skin). This is harmless and will not have any particular long-term impact on the child.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to be careful if the impact that occurs in the head is quite hard, for example a collision that occurs during an accident, a collision that occurs due to falling from a high place (falling from a high bed, falling from a chair with your head first). Falls while learning to walk usually will not cause serious head injury.
The following are some signs that you should watch out for, if you find the following signs after your child has been hit, take them to the hospital immediately:
There is a very large lump on the head
There is bleeding in the head
There is a hollow in the lump area
Palpable crown protrudes after impact
The child has decreased consciousness (for example, continues to sleep)
The child experiences vomiting
Next, try to be more careful in looking after your child. Make sure the child is put to sleep in a safe place (crib), do not place your child at a height when the child can roll over on his own, take care of your child when you put it on a high place (for example, placed on a diaper changing table).
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
