Little fontanel for a child
You have a little man. In the life of your family, a new stream came in. His rhythm can be felt if you put your hand to the head of the baby. This pulses the fontanel of the child. Very soon it will close. When will this happen and what is it? Let’s try to understand.
Any manifestation of nature is amazing. A small baby passes through the mother’s birth canal. His head takes on the most pressure. The skull bones of the fetus are joined by an elastic membrane, which allows them to shrink as needed. The baby is born with an elongated deformed head, but the correct form is gradually restored, thanks to the so-called fontanel. A wonderful natural invention.
It is the fontanel. After all, when the baby comes to light, six fontanels are open – windows. But most of them are overgrown immediately after birth or very small. Only two are clearly visible, this is the front and rear. The latter will close for a month, if it is still open, and the former is usually the hero of parental experiences.
