Does hanging head without support harm the child?

I fell asleep on my couch with my 3 week old infant beside me. When I awoke he was halfway off the couch and his head had been hanging off the side. Did the flow of the blood to his brain hurt him at all? Is there anything that might have hurt him when he was laying this way?

Hi,

If there was no fall, and the baby is absolutely playful and active afterwards, nothing to worry as chance of anything significant is unlikely. Stay relaxed.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
