My toddler (16 months) fell and hit his head on the bookshelf. He's acting normal, pupils are even, and he fussed for a bit, but calmed down after cuddling with mommy & playing with ice pack. He does have a small knot and it have a long scratch sorta gash on it. He didn't bleed & still isn't, so it's just a scratch. Just want reassurance he's okay. He seems okay. I'm just a nervous mommy, and he's my first & only kid. Should I keep him up late? Or is he okay to let sleep if he gets sleepy? Should I check on him & wake him frequently? Or just let him sleep like normal?
