So my 12 month old fell off the bed and hit her forehead on the laminent floor (think wood flooring but fake for those not aware).
about 1 month later (yesterday) she fell down 3 steps and hit her forehead on a damn TILE floor (same spot on her head where she bumped it falling off the bed).
Before anyone says I am a bad father, please note that I have done my best to be a good parent but "new" things seem to pop up and as a result my 12 month old has now hit her forehead twice in a month.
Both times left quite the bruise/bump on her head. I spoke to my sister who is a nurse and she told me what symptoms to watch out for (vomiting, enlarged pupils, lack of balance, acting "different", long bouts of crying etc.) and thankfully none of those things happened.
However I am still worried, and most of all completely UPSET at myself for having this happen.
I did not take her to the ER because she was acting quite normal. Also her pediatrician is not available until this coming Monday......
Please give me some input. Give me hell, or give me advice - I am here to listen and become a better parent.
