Yes I am a numpty... she was in her car seat strapped on top on the supermarket trolley on the special platform thing - that helpfully is at the right height to ensure I cannot see where I am going... anyway I ran the trolley full tilt into a bollard causing the car seat to tip and her head to jolt forward.

... Have I caused her shaken baby syndrome or bleeding on the brain or some other thing? - This happened before lunch and I can't stop worrying about it...

... she has fed well since, but slept more than usual... - during which I couldn't catch up on sleep for worrying! (only got 4 hours last night...)

Most likely fine. Keep an eye on her just in case for all the usual signs, drowsiness, pupils different sizes, look up on NHS what the signs are because she is going to hit her head a lot over the next few years.

Sensible to worry and keep an eye on them when they've had a bump but very rarely causes problems.
