Yes: The newborn skull is often slightly misshapen (the classic look is that of a cone head) after birth. This is due to the skull bones being squeezed during the vaginal birthing process. This is a normal occurrence, and the skull bones will settle on their own within a few weeks. ...Read more
See below: This can be very normal. Big heads and little heads tend to run in families. What is important is the growth velocity with time. You want the head to grow at a steady rate. ...Read more
Soft spot dynamics: The soft spot is basicly a window into the water baloon that protects the brain and spinal cord, with a cushion of water, against the effect of movement.

I'm a first time mom and my newborn is a week old and she bumped her head on her crib. She seems to be ok though she's sleeping a lot but I don't know?
Get evaluation: It is unlikely that a 1 week old could have caused a bump on her head on her own, a one week old can't roll. This situation is concerning for some ptential physical abuse and looking at the fact that the mother is 18 y/o raises the risk. Please take this child to the doctor for an evaluation immediately, it may save a life ...Read more
Thick skull: In general, the backside of the skull is quite thick at any age. That thickness protects it from minor trauma. The brain inside is still at risk of injury when the skull remains intact, if the trauma suffered is enough to rattle up the contents. ...Read more

When leaving the baby alone in his (her)crib ALWAYS put the baby to lay on back. ...Read more
You don't: The soft spot or spots (front & back) represent areas where the edges of the skull bones are separated by more than a few millimeters. They can be as small as a pea at birth, enlarge over a few months & for most seem closed by 15-18 mo. Some start out big, I've seen one softball sized & had a helmet made to protect the head. Graduall closure over time is based on genetic factors, not your efforts. ...Read more

My son bangs his head since newborn now he's almost 4 and he still bangs his head. He functions normal otherwise please help?
Temper tantrum: Most of the time children persist in head banging (or other temper tantrums) because it works for them- it gets them what they want. Stop responding to the head banging! Walk away and don't give in to the behavior. When he calms down and speaks appropriately, then give him your attention (but don't give him what he wanted). When he finds out it doesn't work, he'll stop banging his head. ...Read more

Call the Ob-Gyn Dr.: The question is sort of vague, but a good rule of thumb is "never let the stool get hard" after a baby delivery, hemorrhoid surgery, or other surgery in the anal/rectal area. The patient and spouse must not be squeamish about handling poop, to prevent bad things from happening. The ob-gyn doctor can check to see if there is a bigger problem than not pooping. ...Read more
Newborn son had two head CT scans done 1 month apart. At time we were unconcerned about radiation but now what is the risk of future childhood cancer?
Still very low: Yes your child has had significant radiation exposure. And yes you should always ask if additional ct scans really need to be done, or are there alternative ways such as head us or mri. That being said, the risk is still extremely low. When you are talking about a condition that is very rare, even increasing the risk 2-3 times baseline still makes it a very rare occurrence. ...Read more

Husband came home all smelled cigarettes, alcohol took a shower but didntwashed head, wentto sleep new born is sleeping in the same room 2m away. Harm?
A one-time incident: Is unlikely to cause harm, but chronic third-hand smoke is something to discuss calmly with dad. Toxic chemicals in smoke seep into hair, skin, and clothes (making them smell). Your baby can breathe in these toxins when dad holds him or absorb them when he's in contact with household surfaces that have adsorbed nicotine vapors, which can pose a cancer risk when they react with other chemicals. ...Read more
