The Solution To Dealing With Children Who Fall From Bed?

Hello doctor, my son fell out of bed in the afternoon, the height of the mattress was more or less 20cm, when he fell it was like twisting, then on his back, he cried and then I calmed ,, when I held his head, then I was shocked, how come the right head from above, sideways, a little bit middle, down so why is it soft like that doctor, while the left one is hard, complaints like fuss, and others there is no post fall ,, before he has also fallen in the supine position too, but his head is fine , not so soft. Because I’m sure, how come the head isn’t like that, how come all of a sudden … please explain and a solution, yes doctor

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

In general, falling from a height of 20 cm will not cause any disturbance to the baby. The baby's head is composed of bones that are hard enough to be able to withstand a mild impact. However, if indeed you feel something abnormal on the baby's head (as there is described a part that was originally hard now so palpable soft), you should immediately check your child to the doctor so that it can be examined directly. The doctor will check whether there is a certain disturbance in your baby's skull or in fact the soft part is just a bruise under the skin. Examination should not be postponed especially if your child has an impaired consciousness (suddenly becomes sleepless and difficult to wake up), experiences vomiting, becomes fussy and is difficult to calm down, or there are other neurological disorders (seizures, weak hand movements, etc.) .


You should not put your baby to sleep in an adult's bed. Babies are advised to be put to sleep on their own beds that have protectors on all four sides to avoid possible falls. This is especially true for babies who have started rolling and crawling themselves. You should consider this carefully because your baby's fall has occurred repeatedly. If indeed you do not want to put your baby to sleep in his own bed, attach a safety on the bottom of your bed (attach a thin mattress or softer carpet) so that the child does not experience collisions with a hard floor when falling.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
