Ashlie - posted on 12/11/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




does any one know about your babies soft spot closing too soon? or the sutures closing too soon? my daughters head is proportioned to her body but is only on 5% tile markings. she was 6 weeks early weighing in at 5lb 4oz but was heathly enough not to go into the NICU. she stayed in the room with me the whole time. her doctor is recommending a CAT scan to see whats going on... any suggestions?

Just what Katherine said. My neighbor's son had that problem. He had surgery at 6 months, had a bad scar for awhile and wore the helmet for awhile. Now he's 10 and you'd never know he had the problem.

YES!!!!!!, my husbands cousin had the same thing happen to his son. Liam, the baby, had to have major surgery at 8mo and had to wear a helmet for almost a year. It's very invasive surgery, obviously if the cranium sutures early there is no room for the brain. If it's the same thing I can have her school you on it and give you some peace of mind.
