My three year old hit his head and then threw up, concussion or not?
My three year old had just finished eating dinner. He was standing up behind his brother in a chair and the chair fell over backwards. He started crying after I picked him up. I put him down to pick up the chair and he threw up. My husband thinks that I am overreacting but I want to make sure he doesn't. I have heard to not let them go to sleep right after a head injury too....is that true? PLEASE HELP!

Take that kid to hospital

He could very possibly have a Concussion. I would definitely suggest you call his Pediatrician or take him to the E.R. right now.

yesssssss. done let him sleep!!! he probly just threw up because he had just eten and got abit of a shock. if your really worried then take him to the docs. tell your husband to be more supportive and care more about his kids.

I work in Pediatrics. I would take him to urgent care or the emergency room. Just to be safe. I have seen head injuries turn into nightmares. Please go. A small bleed may take a few hours to really show and it may be to late. The vomiting worries me. Go now!

Give the doc a call to be sure. The throw up may be just cuz he ate recently, but I'd not let it go by w/out checking...How bad would you feel if it is serious and you let it go???? The doc isn't gonna be mad if you call, so just call...

If you're really worried, don't let him go to sleep for 8 hours after he hit his head. Nausea and vomiting is a symptom of a concussion, so you have a right to be worried. Also, use a flashlight to see how his pupils react to light. If they don't contract to light take him to the doctor.

Is he having any other symptoms? Dizziness or sleepiness? The vomiting was most likely caused by the shock of the fall and that he just ate. His stomach is little and sensitive and he was shaken up a bit. You don't typically see vomiting immediately after like that. I would put some ice on his head right away to slow down the swelling. If you feel concerned than take him to the ER. Head injuries aren't something to just take a guess on. You know how hard he hit his head so only you would know if it was enough to cause damage. Even if it wasn't that hard, if hit in the right spot it could still be dangerous. Just take notice to any other symptoms. Go with your gut. Good luck!

You have much cause for concern. You do not want him to go to sleep, and if he threw up that's not good. Go with your gut, as I think everything in your body is telling you to take him to the ER. By ignoring it, you could be doing your son irreparable harm. Wanting to make sure your son is not in danger is not overreacting -- it's called good parenting. Plus, if you do ignore this and something does happen, children's services could step in and then you will have a lot of hell on your hands. Your biggest regret will be if something is wrong that could have been prevented by a simple check up.

Well considering he had just eaten, then was crying and then had an injury it is understandable why he would throw up. Now image you just ate a full meal, cried a lot and hurt yourself like that you might feel sick to your stomach. The difference with children is they vommit quite easily and can't control it like the adults can. We know what we are feeling an can control ourselves down where children can't. Just keep an eye out for him. No sleeping is fine and if you are worried you can always let him sleep for awhile and then wake him up gently and then pat him back to sleep. You can also have him sleep with you tonight.

I am sure he is fine. I have had several concussions and I never had any problems not waking up. It would have to be a pretty bad blow to the head to be concerned about this. We are talking completely knocked out.
