What should you do if your 8 months old baby fell down and his head bumps to ground?
given the fact that none of us are with you and baby to evaluate the severity, i would STRONGLY reccommend that you use mother instincts (is baby crying more than usual when he/she falls). if there is a hicky developing on the head you may want to take baby to nearest er just to ensure that there is not any broken blood vessels that may cause major issues. one thing that i can say for sure do not let baby go to sleep anytime soon maybe within the hr ensure that baby is awake.

How do you stop a nine month old from climbing on everything and should you take her to the doctor every time she falls and bumps her head?
AN Most head "bonks" are harmless, unless the child falls from a high level, or lands on a hard surface/ object. If she bumps her head, and then seems lethargic, vomits, the… pupils of the eye(s) do not respond to light stimulus, etc. she needs to be examined. As far as stopping her from her exploring the world, I doubt that is possible. As a father of three children,all grown up,I managed to make them understand that to be climbing all over the furniture was unacceptabe by first telling them NO,once or twice and than if that did't work,I would than removed phyiscallly from where they were at that time,most of the time they would throw a fit ,but we would ignore them till they cry themselfs to sleep! Always keep an eye on them at all times,never leave them unsupervised! As a parent,you know when something is not right, follow your gut-feelings ! , TUMBLEWEED. Create a safe area in the house so she can. It is a natural and necessary stage of learning to walk. Not every time,,,every other time....just kidding.. Same answer again. Give her a place where she can, then teach her the difference between where she is allowed to climb and where she cannot. ANSWER As a 15 year old mother of a 9 month old, i have disvocered that there have been many head bangs and climbing going on in my child's life. She climbs on her crib and the coffee table and hits her head on the floor, but yet she laughs about it? i believe that if it's a bad fall and there head is bleeding or they are crying for hours at a time with there head hurting, you should take her.

I fell to the ground concrete bumped my head and fell onto my left side. I blacked out momentarily. Now I have a constant pain down my left arm and at the top of my spine.?
This sounds like you have a pinched nerve. You should try some stretching exercises to release it. If you have no success with this, or the pain is too great, you should try a… chiropractor. Otherwise, an acupuncturist will be able to stop the pain, and stop the misfiring nerve.
The weight for each baby is different. There are babies that eat more than others and therefore weigh more. Also what they eat can effect the weight change
they usually don't weigh alot. just depending on how much you eat that gets to the baby.
A few pounds... maybe in the tens of pounds... I'm no expert
Check to see if its ok at the hospital or your doctor
i think less than 1 feet
At a concert a crowd surfer who was launched in the air fell on my head I fell to the ground and blackout for 2 seconds Next day I have a huge bump on your head and neck pain Should I see a doctor?
Yes!. Your brain may be swelling and only a doctor can check that. This is something serious. you can die from head trauma like this.
In warm weather or a warm house in cool weather offer baby water asneeded for thirst. Babies get thirsty just like everyone else -just don't give him or her so much that it in…terferes with food orformula - a couple ounces at a time between breast feeding andformula is plenty from a cup or bottle depending on their age. If breastfeeding, no water is needed. Especially if the baby isconsuming an adequate amount of breast milk. I breastfed all 3 ofmy children and never supplemented with H2O despite my mother'sdismay. Moreover my OB and the kid's pediatrician confirmed it wasbest to encourage and offer BM than to fill the baby up with H2O.The mothers BM has an amazing balance of everything the baby needs. Now if formula feeding, I would still keep H2O to a minimum,otherwise babe is getting full on water instead of the nutrients,electrolytes he/she could get from the formula and a healthy diet. I am no doctor, just passing on advice from my own doctor and thekid's pediatrician. Remember to always seek formal advice from yourown doctor who is familiar with your kid's medical history. Your baby should be having small amounts of water with his mealspreferably from a sippy cup. This is so that he gets used to theidea of getting fluids from some other source. Although breastmilk/formula should still be their main source offluid, your child is well on the way to becoming a toddler. He willperhaps be starting nursery and BF may not be viable. I am writing this on the hottest day of the year, and it'simportant to remember that weaning babies will need extra water tostop them becoming dehydrated. By the way, when I say givesupplementary water I mean a couple of ounces every hour or so inhot weather.
Do not take a bump on the head lightly, it can be deadly if a blood clot or internal bleeding is there. .Any bump that causes unconsciousness should be looked at by a Dr. if t…he bump is minor it should start to go down on the second day but may still be tender for a week or more.
I am also a full time student, 21 and still live with my parents. I don't really get any help from the dad other him getting him diapers and wipes but he has not really helped… me out with the medical bills. I also work as a waitress so i don't really get a paid a regular amount.
Well if its crying then that's ok but if it fell anywhere near its soft spot which is located on the top of a babys head where the brain is,then you need to go to the doctor N…OW because you can not let anything hit it because it could kill your baby.
It depends on what kind of thermometer you have. If you are simply looking for a general idea, place a themometer under the arm. You need to hold their arm down - which is us…ually easier if you can lay them down and give them a fun toy to look at. If accuracy is important, a rectal thermometer is best for infants. In that case, be sure to use a thermometer intended for that use. It usually doesn't bother them, and if you can do it when you do a diaper change... they barely notice you are doing anything unusual.
It should take like a little cup of something that is like apple sauce
At least half 5th of alcohol a day
it depends on how much a baby can take, its usually around 1.5 glasses of milk at different intervals.
