First fall :(

My son is 7 months. He just had his first fall.. off the couch. I handled it surprisingly well. I immediately picked him up & hugged him & rubbed his head. He cried for a good 5 minutes, I think he scared himself mostly. He then fell asleep for 10 minutes & woke back up. He seems fine (responsive, but quiet) & I checked him out (head, eyes, ears, nose). Should I still call his doc? Would Tylenol help if he's cranky later? Could he get a headache? He's watching his baby shows & cuddling w/ me. He may be drained from crying. Ugh :(

Awe first falls are the worst! More for the parents than the baby though!!

Most pediatricians office have an after hours hotline that you can call and speak with an on call pediatrician to ask specific questions, and what you should look for.

I personally would not give him any medication until you call a Doctor. They may not want you to for whatever reason.

The biggest fear is concussion. Just give them a call, and they will set your mind at ease.

Good luck love!
