Nadhirah is becoming more aggressive and active. N sometimes she can be so garang. I was sitting on a couch watching tv with her last nite. Elok2 je dia duduk suddenly "gedebuk" and followed by a cry.
She fell off the couch!!!! I panicked for a while. Kuat jugak d sound of d fell. Grab her n hug her. I cukup risau bila dia jatuh. Afraid if her brain shaken or worst cud led to bleeding in d brain. Nauzubillah.
After checking her head and body for any injuries..i felt relief but i know i have to monitor her for d next 24 hours. Risau nye if anything happen. I normally check behind her ears for any blood clot or lebam and be alert if she throws up. Having kids of your own making u lil more aware of basic first aid..ala jadi doktor pun ada.
Here an article form babycenter.com if what to do if your babe fell..
Whenever your baby takes a serious tumble — from a couch, bed, highchair, crib, or countertop, for example — you'll need to do a thorough check for injuries, especially if he falls on his head or back.
You'll want to make sure that your baby doesn't have any serious wounds, that he hasn't broken any bones, and that he hasn't suffered a concussion or other internal damage. Falls can be serious, but because your baby's bones are soft, they don't fracture as easily as those of an older child.
If your baby looks okay to you and seems to be acting normally, chances are the fall didn't cause serious injury. Be thankful, but keep an eye on him. Continue to carefully observe your baby for the next 24 hours, especially if he bumped or fell on his head.
And err on the side of caution: If you're uncomfortable with the severity of your baby's fall — you think he had to have gotten hurt — or if your baby is acting irritable or confused, take him to the doctor to get checked out.
Call 911 if your baby experiences any of the following after a fall:
• A loss of consciousness. If your baby isn't breathing, have someone call 911 while you administer infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) until help arrives. If you're alone, give your baby CPR for two minutes, then call 911 yourself.
• Bleeding that you're unable to stop with pressure.
• If your baby is breathing but not responsive — he's unconscious after the fall or you're unable to wake him up after he goes to sleep, for example.
Take your baby to the emergency room or talk to his doctor immediately if you notice any of the following:
• Signs of a broken bone, including an obvious deformity, like a wrist that is bent awkwardly, or an arm or a leg that seems out of alignment.
• Signs of a possible skull fracture: A large, soft area on the scalp, especially on the side of the head (above or behind the ear); blood showing in the whites of his eyes; or pinkish fluid or blood draining from his nose or ears.
• Signs of a concussion, such as unusual eye movements or pupils that are unequal in size; persistent vomiting; or excessive sleepiness. Depending on your baby's age, look for a change in how he crawls or walks; weakness or confusion; or problems with speech, vision, or motor skills.
• Prolonged crying or screaming, which could indicate a possible internal injury.
