...its her pulse. And it's normal.

If she DIDN'T have a pulse, THEN you should worry.

Yes. My husband freaked out about this with our son and our Dr. told us it was normal as long as the soft spot isn't swollen or falling inward.

Yes normal.....that is a vein, typically where they put iv in for babies. Its kinda like the vein on your neck, you can see it "beating"
