what does it actually mean if the soft spot on a babies head is dipped in??
MOST HELPFUL POSTS
i got told its dehydration too. but my daughter gets loads of fluids and her soft spot is dipped in some days... and my son who is older was the same.. im not really sure.. maybe although they get lots of fluids they lose them quicker on some days...

its were the skull has not closed ...the baby needs this so that he or she can fit down the birthing canal...if it gets extremely sunken that could mean dehydration...but most close by 1st yr of age...id talk to ur dr. however it is normal to have a "soft spot"
