On April 7, when Britney Spears and Kevin Federline realized that their baby, Sean Preston, had been sleeping more than usual, panic bells went off. Just six days earlier, the 7-month-old had taken a major fall from his high chair, a tumble that had his parents worried that he might have been critically injured.
They had every right to fret. After rushing Sean to a nearby hospital, they discovered he had a minor skull fracture (sometimes called a "scalp fracture" in babies), and a blood clot. And the doctors weren't the only ones to take notice! The next day, the Department of Children and Family Services began looking into the incident.
At least one social worker, accompanied by deputies, visited Spears' Malibu home Saturday afternoon, L.A. County Sheriff's Lieutenant Debra Glafkides said Wednesday.
The call was prompted after the pop star's seven-month-old son was diagnosed with a skull fracture, Star magazine reported Wednesday.
A call seeking comment from Spears' publicist was not returned.

Actually it's not really that uncommon for a wiggly toddler to fall from their highchair. Especially in those few seconds when you're putting them in or out and the tray thing is off for a few seconds. However they usually don't fall hard enough to fracture their head,
