Delayed fontanelle closure

The soft spot on the top of a baby's skull usually is not noticeable to the touch after age one, and closes completely by 26 months at the latest. So it's been a little nerve-wracking to wait and see why the boys still have open spots at 40 months. They were seen by the experts yesterday and pronounced normal in every way. Sometimes these things just happen, probably hereditary, they will close eventually. Hopefully this post will help reassure another mother using Dr. Google, I couldn't find another example.
