So my daughter is 7 weeks old and like most babies has a oft spot on her head, only thing is recently it has began to sink in. I know that sometimes that can be caused by dehydration but i breast feeding. I need some advice on what i need to do.. thanks :)

It is possible that she isn't getting enough while she is nursing. Doese she cry a lot to make you think she is still hungry? I would let the doctor know just to make sure. GL mama.

I've noticed that the soft spot sometimes pulses -- is that the "sinking in" your describing?
