    Indent of 2 month olds head
    victoriadesire posted:
    Hi, Im a first time mom to a gorgeous 2 month old little girl. She was born with a vertical indent on the left side of her head. Its the size of my pointer finger, and now it seems like its more noticeable. I dont know if its really something I should worry about or if I should just except it as something normal and will go away on its own.
    Jennifer Shu, MD responded:
    Congratulations on your new baby, and thanks for posting! Sometimes the bones of the skull can overlap in the first few months and cause what looks like an indentation. The head will start to smooth out as the baby grows. Your pediatrician can check out her head and let you know if anything needs to be done so be sure to bring it up at your next visit or call the office to see if she needs to be seen sooner. Good luck!
