I dropped my 8 month old.What are the things I should investigate ?

I think I dropped my 8 month old whilst picking her up out of my her cot (or she fell out of my bed, I dont recall, was half asleep). SHe seems fine, cried for abit but i see a little swelling at the left base of her skull.she is drinking milk now and seems ok. I m not sure if she landed on her head , the room was dark.

If baby is acting normal then it should be nothing to worry about. All babies will get bumps and bruises at some point. Just keep a close eye on her. If the bump seems to not heal after a couple of days or she seems to sleep a bit more than usual then get an appointment with your health visitor or gp.
