I'd appreciate your thoughts on my daughters forehead! It seems swollen on one side. I have asked gp, who measured it and seems to think we should keep an eye on it but nothing much more.aibu to be a bit concerned? Ventouse birth four months ago. Pics below
Hi even I have the same problem with my baby girl one side of her forehead was swollen. It was not seen during her birth since she is preterm baby she was kept in NICU for 7 days. There is something happend in NICU. she is 3 months old now but still the swell remained the same so pls let me know.. what should be done
I look at a lot of babies heads and your baby does not look unusual. None of us has a symmetrical head and our skulls are made up of separate bones (that later fuse together) some of which can be more prominent and can look "odd".
Add on babies lack of hair and constant changing through growth with normal parental concern and you can persuade yourself there is a problem.
I think your GP is right to just watch and wait and review if there seems to be an increasing problem.
