  • My daughter a had huge one I think it took a year or forever to close! I hated it, always freaked me out. My son barely had one and was only there a few months.

  • My daughter is 13 months now and I want to say that her soft spot didn't close up until she was about 10 months. It should get smaller over time. If it doesn't start to shrink in the next couple of months I might go back to the doctor, but for now I think it should be fine.

  • They pretty much close at different stages my last baby didnt have a soft spot.It was so weird I looked for it and it wasnt there.Maybe thats why it burned when I felt the pressure down there.He was a pretty big baby.9lbs
