Dent in back of 9 month olds head

My 9 month old has a dent in the back of her head. She has had this since she was a few months old. I think that it could possibly be from laying her down in her bassinet on top of one of those Angel Care sensor monitor pads. My husband also has a dent in his hean that he says he has had since he was a baby. She has not hit her head and she is acting normal. I just wonder if any other parents have experienced this and if the dent eventually smoothed out.

  • Talk to your child's doctor. My daughter has a flat spot on one side of her head and it's not getting any better so we're going to see another doctor about the possibility of her needing a helmet. The sooner you get it checked out the better.
