the past couple of days DS has had a sunken fontanelle... what does this mean?
is he ok?
he is feeding ok and otherwise seems in good health

is he dehydrated perhaps?

Usually signals dehydration - but you say he's in good health - I'd get your ds checked by your doctor - just to be on the safe side & also put your mind at rest.
