Mild bumps and scratches are part of childhood. It is quite common for infants to injure themselves while seeing new things, and soon they become routine. However, if the baby hits his head faster than anything, he may have a concussion. The stroke must be known beforehand so that you can meet your baby's doctor and take the necessary steps to cure it quickly. If your baby has the following signs, take him immediately to the emergency unit of the doctor or your nearest hospital:

During this period, breastfeeding or feeding the infant will not focus on cold and incontinence. Do not give any medicine to the child without asking the doctor.
