Ok first of all dd (20 months) hit her head on a cupboard last night. It left a small mark and a lump but nothing much.

She was fine earlier but now she keeps been sick!! About 5 times and theres loads and loads
Shes fallen asleep now.

Do you think it has anything to do with the bump on her head?
Shall I just give her normal food for dinner or something else?

Dd has only ever been sick once before and that was when she was tiny so I ain't got a clue what to do

i would take her to the docs just to be on the safe side

I would ring your doctors surgery straightaway and ask them for advice as I think you have to be careful about bumps on the head if there is sickness afterwards. I'm sure there's nothing to panic about but a phone call wouldn't hurt.

Agree with all advice given so far - just in case you need any more persuasion.

I know it's a pain, but if it were me, I'd go straight to A&E, get her checked out in the right place, just to be on the safe side.

Our hospital assesses children pretty fast, don't know what it's like at yours though.

My DD fell onto a tiled floor and banged her head. I phoned NHS direct and they said that keep a close eye.....possible danger signs;
lack of visible bump to head
vomitting within 24-48 hrs after fall
discharge from ears/nose

if she displayed any of the above I was to take her to A&E straight away.

They said that she would likely to be sleepy but to keep a close watch.

DD started being sick the next day and I took her to A&E and they saw her straight away. She had xrays and was fine. Better to be on the safe side.

I took dd to A&E, they were really great. Saw her right away. She had x-rays and shes fine

Just gotta keep an eye on her. They think its just a tummy bug and it'll just run its course.

Thanks guys

Glad she's OK. I know the media seem to slate them all the time but I think the NHS are just brilliant sometimes.
