I have a 9day old baby and was about to feed him a bottle last night while he was arms. i shook the 4oz bottle to mix the powder and it slipped out of my hand and hit baby on head. I cant tell if it skimmed or hit straight on as it was dark. But i did hear a thump. He let out a little cry but stopped.
I cannot see any marks and he seems fine. Should i be worried? I feel awful.

I understand your concern.
Relax there is nothing to worry.
It must be superficial impact only.
Since there is no reddness over the affected area and he is active .
Watch his activity/feeding pattern for another 24hours.
