Today my son fell forehead first onto the tile floor. He did not manage to catch himself and literally fell right on his forehead. He cried for a good 15 minutes and just wanted to be held for about 30 minutes. He was a little sleepy, I think from crying and less active and maybe a bit quieter. I did call the pedi office, but they said that the bump is good since it swelled out and that if he is acting normal he doesn't need to come in. He is acting normal now and isn't complaining of any head pain, and he is very articulate.
The bump is huge and on his forehead. The bump is red in the middle and then looks like bleeding underneath the skin around it. I would say it is about 1.5-2 inches in diameter. It just looks so awful. I want to take him to the doctor if he needs to go, but I hate to go in and catch the flu if I don't need to take him, since I may be pregnant.
He is acting completely normal now, active and just like himself, eating well and active.
I just need reassurance or to know if I should take him in to the doctor.
