Customer Question

Hi my four month old baby fell off the couch (about 15 inches) onto hardwood a few hours ago. I didn't see how he landed but he has a small scrape on his forehead from a basket next to the couch that he must have grazed on the way down. He began screaming straight away and has eaten a couple times since. He seems to be acting himself and is happy when I play with him. His soft spot did seem to feel normal. I thought everything was fine until he spit up and I freaked out. It's not uncommon for him to spit up but it had been 10 or 20 minutes since he ate. After he spat up he started fussing, then I got all paranoid and started checking his soft spot again and it seemed to bulge when he would wimper. But now I just checked it again while he was calm and it is flat and soft like normal...
