As always for a health question like this, you should contact your baby's pediatrician or other health care provider to be certain, since each situation is unique.. In general, a single spot of blood isn't something to worry about, especially if your baby seems otherwise well. There are numerous po…ssible causes ranging from severe diaper rash to a small tear somewhere along the digestive tract. ( Full Answer )
An adult soft spot is usually a soft spot found on the side of the skull, instead of the fontanel that are found in an infant's skull. What the adult soft spot does, it actually supports the skull; avoiding a severe head injury..
Answer . Answer. Someone who has a soft spot for you probably wishes that you would ask them out, instead of wondering what a soft spot is.
soft-spots usually occur in babies, because when they are born their skulls are fully developed and has a weak spot in the middle
The fontanelle or "soft spot" at the front of a baby's head is where 4 bones join in the skull. It is not fragile, but also not the spot you truly want to expose to the elements. It's soft and vulnerable as there is no bone between your baby's brain and the outside world. There is tough tissue there… to take the place of a skull while it grows. . When a baby transitions from infant to toddler and starts walking, the fontanelle area allows for the bones to shift and absorb impact upon a fall. . You'll sometimes see the soft spot pulse a bit as you watch blood flow around your baby's brain and skull when they are calm and resting. It's normal! ( Full Answer )
To support the skull; avoiding a sever injury, if headeaches are frequent it could be the cause of lack of fluid intake...drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to aliviate the headaches.
This condition causes the skull to bulge because the soft spot becomes hard. If left untreated the baby could die or become severely retarded. The condition can be corrected through surgery by cutting the skull into four quadrants. I cannot remember the name for this condition!. The name of the con…dition is called craniosynostosis.

Firstly, most people are unaware that babies actually have a baby soft spot on the top of the head which is diamond or kite shaped (anterior fontanel) and another one at the back of the head which is triangular (posterior fontanel). A newborn's soft spot exists where the skull has not completely …closed at birth. The anterior fontanel is generally about two inches wide and can remain to some degree until the baby is around eighteen months of age. The posterior fontanel is only half an inch wide and closes relatively quickly between the ages of six to twelve weeks. Essentially, the soft spots are an area of an infant's head where the skull plates have not yet formed together to protect the brain. the soft spot in the babies head where the skull is not fully developed.

The soft spots on a baby's head are called fontanelles. There are two of them, the larger one close to the front of the head, and a smaller one that closes soon after birth further back on the head.
two "spots" generally combine to make up the larger spot. they are the posterior fontanel and the anterior fontanel
Yes. Some doctors won't even do an ultrasound till at least 5 weeks. If you know for sure that you are pregnant, it is probably not going to be your period, although some women have experienced a "first" period then learns a couple of weeks later that they really are pregnant. It is possible that it… could be implantation bleeding caused by the fertilized egg to attach itself to the uterine wall. Or it could be a cervical change that can cause vaginal bleeding. Vaginal bleeding can also be a symptom of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Another cause for bleeding during pregnancy is a miscarriage although the first two reasons for bleeding are more common, it is still a good idea to contact your doctor if you are too concerned.

im not to sure .. but i know that they do a sonogram in order to see the baby
If you are referring to the soft spot on a baby's head, that closes up well before adulthood.
There is such a g-spot. it is in the vagina and it is like a little sack that is very sensitive.
The "soft spot" is the area on top of the head where the bones of the skull have not quite joined. During pregnancy, the skull develops sort of like a jigsaw puzzle; it's not all one bone, but rather many bones that eventually meet and fuse. Some bones meet and fuse before the baby is born. Others f…use after birth to allow room for the brain's tremendous growth over the first year. More than 50 percent of the total growth of the head occurs in this first year of life. If all the bones fused early, there would be no room for the brain as it grows. There are often several "soft spots" present at birth, but most are so small and last for so little time, that parents are unaware of them. But by two months, only two of these spots should be present: . The smaller is the posterior fontanel, on the back part of the top of the head. It's usually difficult to find at two months of age and should be completely gone (because the bones have fused) by four months. . The anterior fontanel is the one most parents recognize as the soft spot. It's on top of the head toward the front. Four bones come together at this spot, but, because of their rounded corners, they don't quite meet. This soft spot may close as early as nine months of age or as late as two years. The average is between 12 to 14 months. So, what does it mean when the soft spot seems to have closed up early? Most of the time, it means that it is still present but is difficult to feel because a tough, fibrous cartilage membrane develops over the soft spot as it is closing. This membrane can make it difficult to determine if the soft spot is still open. However, if the soft spot does indeed close early, it could be a condition called craniosynostosis, which can cause some problems. Craniosynostosis occurs in about one in 2,500 babies and usually requires surgery. If left untreated, compression of the brain may eventually occur and the other bones of the skull become deformed as they grow. This may cause vision difficulties and significant disfigurement of the face. ( Full Answer )
These "soft spots," called fontanels, are actually made of tough but flexible cartilage. A baby's brain grows very quickly, and this flexible cartilage lets the skull expand to make room. If the baby doesn't have this then they have it you just dont know where it is.
No i need u 2 tell me how they care that is y i am on the internet
The soft spots are known as fontanelles. There are two of them and they may vary in size a little bit. The one at the back of the head is usually smaller than the other and triangular in shape. This is known as the posterior fontanelle. The other one is larger and is on the top of the head. It is di…amond or kite shaped and is known as the anterior fontanelle. ( Full Answer )
because it makes them more fun to play with of course. Also because when they come out the skull hasn't fully grown yet.... BEEEAAANNNNSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Its because the brain has to form . and the plate grows there later on.
Birth days only come once a year. At six months your baby can have a half-birthday, though.
No, this can be a sign of dehydration and should be checked out by a doctor.
On the assumption that alcoholic drinks are 'hard' drinks.. So non-alcoholic drinks are soft drinks.
Normally If a fontanelle is hard, baby has a temperature, loss of appetite, this isn't a great sign. The best thing to do is see a doctor. As it could be something quite serious.
its the spot at the top of an infants head were the skull is not completey hardened The fontanelle. A skull is composed of a number of plates that fuse together after birth. A newborn has close to 300 bones in its whole body and many of them fuse together before adulthood as an anult only has 206
Soft spots, or fontanelles, are spaces in the skull that have not matured into bone yet. They allow the baby's brain to grow and make the skull more flexible so the baby can move down the birth canal. By the time the child is 2 years old their skull will be fully developed and the soft spots will be… gone. ( Full Answer )
Yes A puppy can have soft spots. A breeder friend of mine recently had a puppy born with one and it filled in after a few months on it's own. She thought she was going to have to contrieve a helmet for him, but he's normal as can be now!
Justin has stated many times that he has a soft spot for girls with nice eyes and a pretty smile. He also loves girls who have a sense of humor. :)
The bones on baby's head are not fully grown and joined yet. because the head is the biggest part of the body, this also helps at birth, because bones can move a little bit and baby can be squeezed through birth canal. bones grow and then attach themselves a few months after the birth. do NOT push t…hose soft spots, brain is directly under the skin!

It's called a fontanel or fontanelle and allows the baby's head to pass more easily through the birth canal.
The soft spots on a baby's head are called fontanels. There are two of them, and they usually completely close by the time the baby is 2.
The baby's soft spot (fontanelle) refers to the normal gaps between baby's un-fused bony plates in his/her skull. This eases the birth process by allowing the head to change shape slightly during birth, and also allows room for brain growth later on. The bony plates generally fuse (ossify) by the se…cond birthday. ( Full Answer )
Horses normally have a soft, spongy triangle of tissue in the middle of each hoof. This is called the frog and is part of why a horse is able to run and jump as well as it does. Around the frog, however, the rest of the hoof should be fairly firm since it is made of keratin (similar to what your …fingernails are made of, although thicker and more durable). A soft spot in the keratin of the hoof is generally caused by a fungal or bacterial infection that is eating away the keratin. Standing on wet or moist ground for long periods of time, getting impacted debris around the frog and having an injury to the hoof wall or sole are common starting points for these types of infections.

Their heads are soft because the skull isn't fully formed yet, this is so they can fit through the birth canal
If you have a soft spot for someone I would say it's more serious than a crush or that you fancy them. If you have a soft spot for someone try looking out for that one person in your dreams. I don't know why I just always think that if it's real and not just a little thing it will happen in your dre…ams. It's said that our dreams is what our subconsciousness are trying to tell us. Or it is what lay in our subconsciousness. A crush is something that will pass. It was just someone who looked nice and may have welcomed you in a friendly way. Nothing more than a flirt. I'd say jealousy is a good test. Are you jealous of others getting their attention? Or are you happy they are happy? If you fancy someone you will be jealous. If you have known them for a long time the latter may happen as well, but this would generally be called love. Jealousy doesn't have to be a big pain, it could be just a little twinge.

To differentiate them from "hard" liquor. Hard, in this case, means potent, powerful or intense and denotes (like hard cider) alcoholic content from fermentation. Drinks without alcoholic content were labeled "soft."
yes.they do every single one of them.most of them have it on the of there heads
Fontanelles. These allow for the bony plates of the baby's skull to 'flex' during birth
It means to have a favorable attitude towards someone; to be already attracted to someone. For example, I can say, "Don't let him be the judge to decide between candidate A and candidate B because the guy has a soft spot in his heart for candidate B and cannot be trusted with an objective and honest… choice between the two."

"Fontanelle" (sometimes spelled "fontanel".) There are actually four of them, but the anterior fontanelle (directly on top) is usually the most noticeable.
In the UK - it's called a 'buggy'. In america - it's called a 'stroller'.
The fontenel will stay soft and open for sometime as the childmatures and the brain grows to its proper size. Like most things,there's a whole gamut for a normal process.

Moments after each of my children was born, an expert and highly trained obstetric nurse placed the baby on a large pan that was covered with a fresh 'receiving' blanket and connected to a complex electro-mechanical apparatus, to which in every case she referred as a " baby scale ". I was well a…ware that they were dumbing down the conversation to the level where a nervous and untrained new father might understand what was going on and what people were saying to him, so I didn't simply accept this low-class term blindly. Later, as each child grew and I began taking them for regular appointments to see their baby doctor, I had the opportunity to investigate and acquire some of the lingo of the industry, in comparative leisure and in greater detail. I learned first that a 'baby doctor' is a full-sized adult who is a specialist in pediatric medicine, and who is referred to by his peers as a 'pediatrician'. I also noticed that he had his own electro-mechanical apparatus in his examining room, similar to the one at the hospital, and upon which he placed each of my babies whenever we visited him. Summoning up the courage to ask him, I learned that the device is referred to as a " pediatric scale ", at least among those who are in the know. ( Full Answer )
The soft spot on a baby's head closes as he or she grows. Since thehead is still developing as an infant, it will gradually come intoits own as the child grows.
There are actually two soft spots on an infant's head and they'recalled "fontanelles". The posterior fontanelle is a soft spotlocated on the back of the infant's head. The anterior fontanelleis a soft spot located on top of the infant's head.
The soft spots are called fontanelles . They occur at thefibrous sutures (joints) between the plates of the skull, andusually fuse with bone (ossify) within the first two years afterbirth. The spacing between the skull plates is necessary for properexpansion as the brain grows.
