You poor thing!

If she's happily crawling around, she's fine. Head trauma symptoms are, roughly; pale, floppy, quiet, lack of eye focus, vomiting. Usual advice is just to keep an eye on them while they sleep for the first day, if they seem unusually sleepy wake them up to check on them.

Mine had a very traumatic head injury at 4 months, and it was absolutely unmistakeable. I mean obviously there's a medium ground between bilateral skull fractures and concussion, but if she's eaten, calmed down and is crawling and happy, you're good.

No need to keep her awake if she seems completely normal. Just if she sleeps for a lot longer than usual, or her colour or breathing change (she goes paler, or the breathing slows) maybe wake her. But she didn't lose consciousness, wasn't difficult to console, and is acting normally, so I very much doubt she's injured herself at all.

Just keep an eye on her today - all A&E will be able to do, and you'll be better at it as you a) know her "normal" better and b) almost all the junior doctors in the country change jobs today so you're likely to see someone who doesn't know what to do if you go in. A tumble where she cried immediately and is moving everything is unlikely to have done anything too serious.

Have a brew and see how she does with brekkie.

Of course then you need a master plan for nap time for the escapologist-in-training you have there grin It might be time to loe the cotsides?

She sounds fine, try not to worry (just keep an eye on her). You may need to think about changing sleeping arrangements, though; we moved DS out of his cot into a bed at 15/16 months after a similar excapology escapade.

Is she in a sleepbag? We put DS in one for similar reasons

Hope she's ok
