    Take the baby to the dr now - or hospital. There are lots of concerns with a sunken Fontanelle

    Yep straight to a Dr or hospital. That does not look good. I would say immediately dehydration. If bub is still having lots of wet nappies but still dehydrated I would be concerned about other things going on like extra fluid on the lungs from a chest infection with the extra fluid being cycled through the body, along with diabetes, and kidney problems. I personally would not leave it any longer

    OP has your DD been upright (sleeping on your chest etc) more than usual because of her croup?

    When DS was small and his reflux was not yet diagnosed we took him to the ED because his fontanelle looked like your DDs, they ruled out dehydration straight away and could only say it was because he had been almost constantly upright for days because he was in pain while lying down.

    I would take her to emergency just to be safe, I am surprised that the helpline nurse didn't advise that straight away.
    Good luck!

    She had been upright a fair bit in the preceding days, is possible that I didn't notice it for a while.

    Hi everyone, thanks for your replies.
    Took her to my gp today, he also thinks that the sunken Fontanelle was caused by the prednisolone, it is a bit better today than it was yesterday.
    She does however have an ear infection and a rattly chest so is back on antibiotics. She's not a happy girl
