Hi, my two year old jumped off our 3 ft bed slipped and hit directly on head. Cried harder then ever before with injury. Seemed fine a few minutes later so layed him in bed and he feel asleep unusually fast. I ve tried waking him several times and it s taken quite a bit of work to wake him. He wouldn t cooperate and let me get a good look at his pupils. Should I go to er?

Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that your son has suffered a minor head i9njury. If you camnt have a look at his pupils, watch out for vomiting, unconciousness , bleeding from nose or esar or eyes, etc. in which case you need to rush him to an ER.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello dear

Yes you should go to emergency and get the complete check of your baby. As your baby is conscious and also following your commands its good and usually rule out Head injury but it follow your command late dont know the cause. Your baby might be drowsy. So you go to er and rule out head injury. we cant take risks in childerns.

Hoping every thing will be all right.
