Thank for asking to HCM
The head injury should always be taken seriously any thing could happen within 48 hours of head injury even though patient's condition seems alright, I would advise you to keep a close watch on your baby for general condition particularly sensoruim ( the over all body functions) this should not be altered, if every thing goes OK then no need to worry, but if you find something going wrong take her to ER,, the swelling will subside within a week, take care of your baby,bye

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
small injuries on head are very common during in infancy because children are very active during this period.
if there is any serious injury child will present with excessive cry, decreased food/milk intake, drowsy, irritable, seziures, altered sensorium, vomitings and decreased play activity.
you might consult doctor if child present with above symptoms.
other wise no need
