A child's posterior fontanelle closes between 6-8 weeks. The anterior fontanelle closes between 12-18 months. Hint: A baby starts on its back first then her front later

Just as baby is on her back first then her front later, posterior (back) fontanelle closes first then anterior (front) closes later.
