He has a huge egg on his head at the hairline, and a cut accross it. He cried for a couple of mins but now seems fine and has had breakfast, and is watching cbeebies. I have tried to put a cold compress on it but he is having none of it!

Have made an apt for doctors but earliest was 11, just wonder if I am over reacting going to doc, or am I under reacting and should I be heading to A & E ???

He doesn't hurt himself that often so not sure what to do, he is 22 months by the way.

Anyone know????

Watch for him being sick or feeling sleepy but not sure if you should go to a&e - hopefully someone will have more info (hope he's ok)

If he is happy now and alert, no sickness or drowsiness then he'll be fine. Very scary though. If any of the above happen A&E straight away.

Don't worry if he wakes up tomorrow with black eyes, it is the blood draining down from the bump <having memory flashes of the state of DS1's eyes after a bump on the head>

Poor little thing, lots of cuddles and treats today
