My 5 yr old hit his head hard on the floor & now is sleeping a lot should I be worried?

When my son hit his head I checked for bumps & checked to see if his eyes were dilated, No bumps & his eyes were normal.

Hes still playing normally but seems to be a lot more tired lately. Hes been sleeping a lot more then usual.

Idk if I should be worried or not. Is this normal for a child to just be sleepy a lot?

Thanks

Better to err on the side of caution. I would have him examined by your doctor just to be safe

If there's even a question, I would just get it checked out. I'm sure it's nothing, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I would have him checked out to be on the safe side. It's better to be safe then having something happen to him.

Definitely have him be examined by his doctor. Better be safe for you son's health then to assume he is ok. Good Luck and god bless.....

I would have him checked our for concussion with his doctor just in case to be sure he is alright.
