Welcome to HCM.
Since the child is not irritable, I think you could keep a watch to see if the baby has some discomfort. Most likely every thing should be alright. Now that it is more than 9 hrs after the fall, if the baby is not showing any signs of discomfort, you need not visit ER.
If baby is drowsy or not active, then it is better that you take her to ER.
Wish your baby all the Best.
