Baby's head hit after slipping from stairs, cried for few minutes, whimpered through out night. Reason?

I was walking up the stairs with my 10 month old baby and skipped a step and practically fell and hit the back of her head against the wall --which is what broke my fall. She cried and after a few minutes she stopped crying and was being her normal self. I don t think she got any big bumps. There head is so bumpy anyway. Well, this happened on Monday and when she went to sleep Tuesday night, I heard her whimper a little bit through out the night. But, no vomitting and she is her normal self, smiling and playing. She does have two double ear infections so I m not sure if the whimper is related to the ear infection or by the hit she took on the wall.

Thank you for your query.
I hope thre is no reason to worry .Within 48hrs of head injury if there is no episode of recurrent vomiting,bleeding from nose and ears, unconsciousness, convulsions or abnormal behavior..there is absolutely no reason to worry. If these symptoms appear then there might be need of a CT scan. Pain can cause the symptoms you have mentioned. Thrice daily paracetamol will take care of the problem. If medications for ear problems are on then there is no reason to worry. hope this answers your query. have a nice day.
