  • When my daughter was that young...I used to be able to see her head pulsating where her soft spot was. It was freaky. Your baby is fine...if you're that concerned, bring it up with your pedi.

    A sunken soft spot is not "fine."

  • She is dehydrated. You need to nurse her more often. A call to your health care provider is a good idea.
