Hello everyone. It's been almost 2 years since I've been on here posting. We had a little one diagnosed with Metopic Cranio in 2010. After seeing countless doctors and getting several opinions we did the wait and see approach. It had no negative imapcts on her or her vision, of course the Dr's labeled it "cosmetic." She has a very noticable ridge, but as long as she is a happy healthy girl we're happy too.
Well we just recently had a new little girl! She was born two weeks ago. Everything was going pretty good until I was feeding her this morning. When I laid my hand on the back of her head, my heart kind of sank. I felt two ridges running along the backside of her head. I believe those are the lambdoid sutures? I remember with Whitter Bug her Pedi dismissing my concerns saying that the skull overlaps after birth and will "even out in time" that went on for 6 months before I convinced him to send us for a CT scan. I don't want to go down that road again. So I'm back here asking for advice.
First of all it's been so long I can't remember if this is "normal" for a newborns head to feel like. Moms who have kiddos with these sutures closed, could you describe it and how soon you realized it? Her two week check up was yesterday and I'm kicking myself for just realizing it today. Any advice is welcome. It's like we're starting this all over again and I feel sort of lost. TIA!
