Babies: 3 - 6 Months

Head/skull shape ?

LOs head is rounding out nicely (no flat spots) but he has some asymmetry; on his right above his ear it is smooth and on the left there is a ridge where the plates of his skull meet, almost like they're overlapping a bit. I know its too early for them to be fused and they'll probably spread out as he grows but it has me a little nervous. I'm going to call his pedi's office to see if it sounds like something they need to see sooner than later. Anyone experiencing something similar?

    Yes! And I asked the pedi about this last week. He said it is perfectly normal. (I asked the nurse first and she said that, too, but I asked the doctor anyway.)

    Our kids have the same noggin, so I hope this is helpful! ;P
