Hi,

 

I strapped my 8 and a half month old baby in his rocker chair and he managed (I still can't figure out how!) to completely flip it on it's back so i found him laying vertically on his head. He must have bumped it when it flipped back and i imagine it was quite a nasty bump to his head.

 

He cried for about 5 minutes and has been acting okay but he does keep crying now and then, I have checked his eye dilations and they are fine but i am still wondering whether to get him checked?

 

It is a bank holiday so our doctors are closed except for emergencies.

 

If anyone had any advice i would really appreciate it,

 

Thanks.

I would go to the ER (or more affordable alternative?), mostly because you didn't see exactly what happened.

Something like this really does deserve medical attention rather than internet advice. Please see your doctor or at least call and ask if you should bring him in to be checked.
