    X-Ray on 2 month-old

    Recently, my cousin was in a fender bender. A 2-month old baby was on the back of the car. Baby does not show any signs of distress, loss of appetite, loss of sleep, fuzziness, absolutely nothing. Fender bender occurred two days ago, yet my cousin and significant other accepted for baby to have rays done. I understand they are new parents but if baby doesn't show any signs or symptoms of something actually being wrong; taking in consideration that baby was in car seat safe, and car seat never moved, why would they put the baby through an uncomfortable situation which is restraining baby to take X-rays? What do you mommy's think about this? Would you put your baby through an X-Ray?
