i dont know if they get larger, but my sister had an abnormally large soft spot at birth, which they believed to be linked to her birth defects, but maybe you just didnt notice? with my daughters insurence i have a 24 hour nurse line thats really helpful, they can tell you. the number is 1-800-391-2000, you may have to be a member (kern families) but maybe they can help.. good luck and congrats on the baby
I'm wondering the same as the first poster. Is it bigger or is it bulging? If it's bulging then you should take her in and get checked.
My son has hydrocephulus so we had to keep an extra eye on his soft spot and our Dr.s told us that when a baby is crying or more active it can bulge a little and can appear larger when they are calm. So that could be it too.
But if it appears to be really bulging, especialy when she is calm or sleeping then I would make an appointment and get it checked out.
her soft spot seems to have gotten bigger in diameter, not bulging or anything, just in diameter. my mother told me that they dont do that so i probably just havent noticed. but when i feed her im always rubbing her head, and ive never felt it before. i called the doctor and i have an appointment on the 16th to look at it. it just seems weird to me, since she was born she;s been to the doctors a lot. she had an ultra sound on her hips because of hip displatia? but came back alright. she's been seen for sever vomiting, and not being able to keep down her food, so we switched formula and she seems to be getting better. is she having these problems due to the fact that she was 4 weeks early and the fact i had complications while pregnant with her?
