hey lovely mommies,

i hv heard many old people suggesting that putting lot of oil on the fontanelles(soft points on the head) helps in their it true or just a myth...plz share..

me also confuse.. old people ask to put oil, but Dr say dont put anything..

whether you put oil or not, it will take the same time to harden. I didn't do anything special for my daughter, she is 4 years now. I m not doing anything spl for my son who is 4 months old.

It's a complete myth. The fontanelles are present because the baby's brain is still growing and they will fuse when the development is complete.
