My son is 6 1/5 weeks old, and I notice from time to time his front fontanelle sinks in. It's not all the time; it varies throughout the day/day to day. I read that it could be a sign of dehydration with other symptoms, but he eats well (average 4oz. every 2-4 hours), goes through his daipers at a good pace, and is usually very alert and never spits up.
I suppose my questions are:
Have you ever had a child that had a sunken fontanelle with no other symptoms? If so, did you see the pediatrician and what did they say?
Should I be concerned?
Is it common, or do I need to call the pediatrician?
Thanks for any and all help ladies!
