I bumped my 4 month old's head yesterday

Total accident, I walked out of the kitchen as DH walked in carrying DS and the door caught him on the side of the head. He cried a little but was fine and although I felt awful I kind of forgot about it. He's not been himself today, sleeping loads during the day, off his food and although he's usually asleep by 10ish he's still awake and screaming. Have I really hurt him? Do I need to take him to hospital? sad

Oh my god I called NHS 24 and they've sent us to Yorkhill. I am panicking.

Hope he's okay. Im assuming Yorkhill is a hospital, so you are taking him to the right place.

Oh sorry, it's a children's hospital. It's not even our local hospital.

Good luck. Let us know how it goes. I will be thinking of you and your little one.....just try to stay calm

NHS 24 tend not to mess around with small babies. How is he?

Sorry I never came back! He's totally fine, has a bug working on him. Just coincidence that it happened the day after I bumped his head. So thankful he's okay smile

We've all done it. More than once! No need to feel guilty, accidents happen.
