About half and hour ago dd(17mths)ran towards the sofa but landed flat on the floor quite hard(wooden floors)She bumped the front of her head and cried for a while and has a big red bump there now. She seems fine and was chattering away as usual and has now gone down for her nap. She's just had lunch so being sleepy around this time is quite usual for her.
But me being me I am worried I am doing the wrong thing letting her have her nap. But if I don't she will just be really grouchy.

has anyone got any ideas? I am searching for signs to look out for now on the web. I know one was vomiting, which she hasn't had.

vomiting, dilated pupils, disorientation, dizzieness.
Let her nap - just keep an eye on her.

thanks guys, she seems fine at the moment, I just get so scared when I see huge bruises appearing

Better she get an immediate visible bruise or bump - means any swelling caused by slight trauma is external rather than internal.

thanks for your advice here. She is fine, running around as usual. Just been out for a walk and she ran up to a bench in the park and bashed her mouth. So have also been dealing with a mouthful of blood this afternoon, bothered me more than her. She just decided to keep on going. I was in a panic but my mum said to let her keep walking if she wanted to and she's fine again.

What a day I am having today!!

yes, I really feel sorry for her today, but she does not seem bothered at all. WAs happy as long as she got to walk and not be pushed in the buggy:-) It always amazes me how they bounce back....
