Is it a hard lump or a soft lump? A soft one is sometimes something to look into. My son (who is twenty years old now) use to always break his falls with his head, most of the time it was nothing although he did have a skull fracture from hitting his head when he was just over a year. It was soft and mushy. It never hurts to call the doctor.

It is when there is no lump after a hard hit that something could be wrong.   So I would put some ice and kisses and don't worry.

A docter said that to me once before on one of our vists to the local hospital, that a bump is a sign of healing! My lad is 1 and he keeps bumping his head everywhere i'm a nervous wreck following him round all day! he's just found his feet and is very unbalanced bless im!

Quoting Colleen:

Hi there



I'd say no as a lump has come up thats always a good sign i'd just put a cold compress on it and lot's of love.



My little girl never stops bumping into things some times i think she should have been a little bot the way she climbs and jumps off things.



Hope this helps



Tammy

I wouldn't worry too much.  A doc once told me u should be worried if when they hit their head  it left an indent rather than a lump.  Thank goodness they are so resilient.  Ice for both of you, but u may want to add a little rye to yours to help with the nerves.

As long as she actually cried and is still acting normal she should be fine.

my son always seems to land on his head... usually its nothing to worry about. Do keep an eye on her  for any changes, any sickness,  and if your worried call your health visitor or doctor... I find Its always better to get be bothering people for nothing than find out something is wrong to late! I hope all is well, goodluck!
