Does your baby's soft spot ever seem sunken in?

Lila's occasionally looks sunken in. When I google it, this can be caused by dehydration. I am adequately hydrated and I nurse her on demand (and her weight and diaper output are both great.) She has basically no hair on the top of her head, and the hair she DOES have is clear (well, blond, but looks clear to me thumbsuck.gif,) so could it be that I just see her soft spot easier??

Hmmm I'm not sure. I hope it's not dehydration since Jaya's looks sunken in all the time.

I've noticed that when she takes a bottle it sort of rises and falls. Super creepy.

Yes, occasionally. I would be paying more attention to wet diapers to determine hydration though. Also a seriously dehydrated baby will be listless and weak.

I haven't noticed Elliott's soft spot at all.

Several times after walks, I've noticed it. I tend to make sure she gets a good feed and wet diaper and it seems ok after that...

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not too worried because she has lots of wet diapers. It just must be how it is!
