    THERE A LOT OF THINGS:Expecting your first baby can be an exciting time with so much to learn about fetal growth and development as you await your infant's arrival. For many new mothers, the excitement of a baby can bring about anxiety as well.
    Understanding the various aspects of childbirth and infant growth and development leads many new Moms to worry about the risks and complications associated with abnormal infant skull development. While you work hard to ensure your baby get's proper nutrition, during pregnancy, in an effort to maintain proper brain function, the actual development of the skull is just as important. At the time of birth, your baby will have six areas of the skull that will appear to be underdeveloped. Known as fontanels, these areas on the brain consist of a fibrous tissue, or membrane, that covers the brain and then is covered by your infant's skin. These undeveloped fontanel spaces are often referred to as your infant's "soft spot" because it is the area that, when compressed, often feels soft to the touch.
    For each infant, there are six fontanels at birth that, with time, will eventually close as normal child growth and development takes place. The final closure of the fontanels occurs just as the brain grows and develops.
    What is the theory behind these fontanels? For vaginal delivery, the fontanels serve purpose by allow the infant's head to slightly compress and then, as delivery occurs, form shape of the head after passing through the birth canal. In fact, in many newborns, the head may appear to be slightly misshapen due to the formation during birth with most infant's experience full remedy within five days of birth. When one of the fontanel continues to be misshapen following the first week after birth, this may be indicative of a greater health complication that requires medical attention. Such complications may be indicative of Downs's syndrome, rickets, hypothyroidism, syphilis and various other syndromes that may provide insight and early detection into a future complication of growth and development. In most children, the closure of all fontanels should not occur until well after three months of age. As you care for your new infant, it is important to examine the fontanel areas daily, avoiding compression, by lightly touching the fontanel spaces. If the spaces appear to be depressed, bulging or closing early, it may be necessary to bring this concern to the attention of the pediatrician as additional testing may be required to rule out other health complications in your infant. In many cases, however, the fontanels will continue to progressively close over the first six months of life without incident or reason for concern.
