I think all babies bump their heads at some point, and usually pretty often over the course of learning to move, crawl, walk, etc. My guess is that if your LO didn't cry, he hardly even felt it.
DD, I'm sorry to say, has bumped herself a TON over the last few months, especially now that she's started walking. You just can't protect them from every fall (nor do I think it's even good to try - that's how they're learning). Mostly I try not to react and she just gets right back up and goes back to trying whatever it was she was doing. This morning I did feel bad, though, since she fell backwards from the first stair (I was watching but wasn't quick enough) and really hit her head hard on our wooden floor and (I think) bit her tongue. She was startled and hurt and WAILED, which she almost never does. Even so, five minutes later she was back to climbing the stairs (though I still felt bad
Hugs, mama, but don't beat yourself up. In the end, they're much tougher than they seem....
