when did your babies close? my son just turned 12 months this week and my best friends mom (who is a nurse) told me when I asked her when he was around 3 months about the fontanels, said that they usually close completely around 9 months. I am taking him tomorrow morning for his 1 year shots so i plan on asking his doc but, just wanted to know what some other moms have experienced with this subject. Thanks!
I've always been told that it could take up until the child was two before they were fully closed and hardened . I've never heard that they should completely close by nine months. That sounds a little early. But my son is almost 16 months and his have closed. So they probably could close by nine months but I imagine not every baby's close that soon. But I'd still ask the doc just to be sure.
