yesterday l held my 3 month old and 20 month old together at waist level. My 3 month old twirled around and l did not have a solid grip at the time; he literally dropped on the tiled floor, body impacted first then his head, as neck muscles aren't developed enough to move head back. He was instantly crying in pain, for about 10mins, but then returned to his normal behaviour, giving me large grins of happiness and joy. We were still concerned, as he had a relatively large protrusion, we took him to a local hospital. The Dr told us to come back the next day for a X ray just to be sure all is ok. It has been more than 24 hours since my careless drop, and his behaviour is completely normal. No sickness or bleeding from nose / ear occured, just a little from the mouth, but that went away in secs after a tissue wipe. The protrusion has died down, but it feels very soft, almost like a bag of gel, What is this and what should be done?
thanks in advance
