I’d like to ask your opinion, your experiences, your suggestions on what to do after the injury.
Here’s what I know so far:
-As soon as the accident happen, check for any sign of bleeding.
-My pedia said if the child didn’t lose her/his consciousness, no need to rush to an emergency room. Even vomiting is normal. Unless it persists until the next day.
-Check if the baby is lethargic, confused or unresponsive, if so rush to the ER.
-If the child can’t move or walk, call paramedics do not move the child yourself.
-If there is a bump, hot and cold compress to subside.
-If the child returns to his/her usual behavior, no worries.
-Wake the child every 30 mins. for the first 24 hours just to check his/her status.
-Of course always check for the vital signs.
Also, I believe that guardian angels protect our babies. I have read several stories to prove this. I also happen to experience it personally.
Please do share your opinions and experiences. SO that we’ll learn from each other.
