Your baby seems alright with no internal injuries and you also seem to be well informed on what to look out for .

But you will need to observe her one more day for the following signs and symptoms

1. Excessive crying and very irritable
2. not feeding well
3. seizures
4. bulging of the anterior fontanelle
5. vomiting
6.not moving any of her limbs
7.any deviation from her normal activity

You will need to consult a doctor in case of any of the above symptoms
