Please help, I am restless since my 5months & 4week old baby fell off the bed on mother's day. I sent him to bed around 7pm, since he's an all-nighter I just placed big pillows around him so he won't fall off the bed. I thought he'd sleep thru the night since i sent him to bed so I went to make dinner, but within minutes we heard him crying out real loud in pain. We rushed to his side and I saw him on the floor after falling from our 2feet high king sized bed. He was crying so loud tha t panicked and picked him up right away. Hubby checked him if there are any wounds or bumps or broke any bones. There seemed to be none, and my LO hushed after a few minutes and went onto playing again. Almost an hour later I felt a bump on the left side of his head, then I panicked again. I haven't thought of applying cold compress onto the bump. Two days later, i felt around his bump and saw that it was gone, but the hard bump became tender and bigger. It was as tender as his soft spot so i panicked again. we rushed him to his pediatrician but the latter informed us that he seems ok afte having him checked. But she mentioned that we need to observe it and it should go away 4days from the incident. it's the 4th day from that day now but the keft side of his head (the side where he must've fallen on) is still tender and seems to get even more tender and bigger.
I am worried to death and really restless. I don't know what it is..I dunno what to do...PLEASE I NEED ADVISES.
