A baby, especially from 4 months on, is already able to roll over, and as such, when he is in his parents’ bed, even if surrounded by cushions, he may move in such a way that he falls on the floor .
When a baby falls from the bed and bangs his head on the floor, it is natural for parents to feel frightened and almost desperate.
However, most of the time, when this happens, the child’s crying is mainly due to the fright he has caught, and not so much because of the pain he has.
This is a fairly common accident where it rarely has serious consequences. But obviously, when such a fall happens, you need to take extra care to make sure that all is well with your baby.
What to do?
If your baby fell out of bed and hit your head on the floor, the first thing to do is to carefully assess the area where the shock occurred.
Watch closely if there is any depression or a “cock” (a high).
If a cock has arisen, this means that the blood has passed out in the subcutaneous region, and therefore a cold compress should be applied to reduce this height.
On the contrary, if a depression has formed, that is, a decrease, then it is important to consult a doctor, since a more serious trauma, such as a bone sinking, may have occurred.
There are also cases where no visible changes appear in the baby.
However, this does not mean that there has not been an internal trauma, which could cause internal bleeding.
In these cases it is essential to be alert to other signs, which may indicate that there is a problem with the baby.
Here are the signs to watch out for:
- loss of consciousness;
- more sleepy than usual;
- signs of weakness;
- loss of balance (in the case of children who already walk);
- problems with vision or speech (in older children);
If you notice any of these signs after a fall, you should go to a hospital immediately, as there may be a sign of internal bleeding.
In any case, with greater or lesser consequences of the fall, it is fundamental to prevent new occurrences.
