I just noticed 2 lumps on the back of my 8 week old daughters head, where the scalp meets the neck. She hasn't lost her appetite & she doesn't seem to be in any pain, but it concerns me a great deal & I am very worried. I am taking her to the Doctors tomorrow, but I wanted to find out if anyone else, has noticed this w/their babies before & if so, what they found out.

We did notice something similar with our baby when she was around that age. We brought it up with our paediatrician. His conclusion was that we should keep an eye on it for a while but as long as it didn't get worse it was ok. What it was most likely was just the bottom of her skull since at that age it is still not hard. He did check it at the next appointment again and it did go away eventually.
