Soft spot

When did the soft spot on your baby's head close all the way? My dd will be 14 months in a week and hers is still open. I can feel a little more than 1 finger worth of space there, like the top of my finger.

Yes, they are normally closed by 3 years of age, if you feel it a concern, there is never any harm in asking your doctor. .It's better to ask than remain silent when it comes to your children.

No worries. By age 3 it should be completely closed....

When we put a pony tail in DD's hair, it "twitches" from the pulse in her soft spot. DD is a Junebug too. She will be 14 mo in 2 weeks

Its not too concerning to me. I was just wondering since my older two are 17 and 8 so its been a while since I had a baby.
