How flat is your baby's fontanelle? Ds2 is 10 weeks and feeding like a trooper this past week post vaccination.

His fontanelle is flat more or less with the skull, its soft to touch, obviously I'm not pressing it!

He is fine, not unwell, but just curious! Earlier in the week it was slightly down but not sunken iyswim?

A dipped fontanelle is a sign of dehydration, so if your baby's is level with the skull then he sounds grand on that score.
