Hello doctor,

My baby is 1 year old. He fell down from the bed and got hurt at the backside of the head. He got hurt many times the same way. He is not sleeping properly at night and wakes up frequently. I would like to know whether it will cause any complications in the brain or some other problems?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Frequent falls, if associated with any symptoms after the fall, will usually effect the brain. Symptoms like loss of consciousness, vomiting, fits are dangerous. You need to be more careful about falls and prevent them. Crying at night is a common symptom. Normally baby cries during the night if he is hungry or having any discomfort or just wants to be cuddled. If he is fine later, it is probably normal. Sometimes worms can be present in the anal area, causing itch and disturbs the sleep. If the problem persists, then consult your doctor, as he needs to be examined.
