  • im not quite sure but look at this website and try asking your doctor about it. see if the symptoms listed there match your baby's. if they are similar and you tell your doctor about it and he says its nothing, try getting a second opinion http://www.kidsplastsurg.com/craniosynostosis.html

  • Many years ago the doctor told us our son did not have a soft spot. Turned out his bones overlapped but were not closed.The condition as I recall is called cranialstenosis. Surgery to separate the bones to allow for growth.I would see a neurosurgeon right away. Good luck to both of you.

The skull grew back as if I it was normal. I have a slight dip in the back of my head, but my hair covers it well. Hair obviously doesn't grow over the scar tissue, but the doctors cut a straight line down the middle so it looks like I part my hair that way. I have never had to have another sugery because it was diagnosed and taken care of quickly. The sooner the better because babies grow so quickly. She is crying because her brain is growing, but her skull will not allow it to expand. If left untreated, the pressure will eventually cause deformation in the face and possibly mental retardation. This takes many reconstructive sugeries to "fix".

This takes many reconstructive sugeries to "fix".My son turned 30 recently. He was born with primary cranial stenosis (sagittal synostosis). He had a craniectomy when he was 6 weeks old. His head has always had a slight groove where the strip was removed, but otherwise he has had normal growth. He now has a wife and 3 children. None of the children have had cranial stenosis. There is a lot of information on the web if you look up craniosysostosis.

As I got older and closer to God my parents explained to me that I was born this way and through prayer I was healed. At the time my mom didn't believe in healing through prayer but she was desperate to try anything and when brought to the alter the pastor knew why she was there. My mother told me as they prayed I began to scream out and raise my hands to the sky. That night I slept straight through to the morning and prior to this I was luck to sleep for 2hrs. When brought to the doctor for surgery he brought my parents aside and said a miracle happened and the only way to explain it is God. I always knew there was a purpose for my life and its now clear. After years of running from the Lord I have now set up a company based on spreading the Word of our Lord ****s C hrist. www.acupoforganic.com

  • I was born with out soft spots. I had it corrected at 1 years of age. When I was 20 I gave birth to my little girl who as well had no soft spots. Yesterday , and a few times in the past she has had head ach that bring her to tears. She is 5 now. To top it all off I’m due to have another one in nov. with the chance that this child as well will not have soft spots. This is passed down. Please make sure that you tell your children what they have so later on they can pass on the info.
