I have baby boy who is 2mounths older and have a head size 33.5 is it ok?

33.5 cm?: 33.5 cm is a small head size. The measurement can be very tricky. There are a lot of questions to ask.
Was your baby premature?
What was his measurement in cm at birth?
Is the baby feeding well?
Is he gaining weight well?
Does he look at you when you feed him?
Can you console him when he cries?
Does he move everything - arms and legs?
You should see your baby's doctor to ask these? 's. ...Read more

If a baby has a rather large head, would it be possible for their body grow for their head size?

If a baby has a rather large head, would it be possible for their body grow for their head size?

Yes.: Weight varies with height. But head size has nothing to do with height or weight. So although it is possible that someone's body could grow to match their large head, there is no guarantee it will happen. Further, the percentage of your body length that is your head is about 30% at birth, but only 10% as an adult, so babies tend to have bigger heads than adults. ...Read more

Is head size bodily proportional to height?

Is head size bodily proportional to height?

Usually it is so..: Normally, head-size is proportional to height. In pediatric care, head circumference, length (height) and weight measurements are very important part of each well visit. Headsize and height will continue to grow proportionately until shortly after puberty. Once max growth in height is achieved, head size stops even if one continues to grow sideway (unfortuately too much in us). Good luck. ...Read more

Will my head size increase if I continue to gain weight?

Will my head size increase if I continue to gain weight?

Not after puberty: Your head grows fastest during first 2 yrs of life, then slows down until puberty with growth spurt. Once you're done with growth in height--about 16-17 for girls, and 19-20 for boys, your head will not likely have any significant growth--except maybe for gigantism. You are now 45, your headsize won't change even as you are growing sideway. Keep healthy and ideal body weight. Cosult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

My son age is 10 month & his head size is 49.50, is it is normal?

Head size: 49.5cm is larger than normal per chat attached. That does not automatically mean that your child has something terribly wrong. In some families there is a tendency to have large heads without any medical problem. Doctors mostly worry when the head size increases more quickly than expected, as this could mean there is a problem causing rapid increase in the head size. ...Read more

Nine month old head size 97 percentile, is that bad?

Depends: If it has changed from the 10% to the 97% since birth, I would be more concerned than if it was big all along. If his height and weight are on the larger side it would be more consistent with a normal variant. It didn't bother me much in life, except when looking for a helmet that would fit. ...Read more

Head size and wt: I am assuming that you are a fully grown adult, your skull size will not increase in size.

Question about head size. Do large-headed people have more neurons in reserve (for later in life)?

A big head is good!: Research published 2 years ago in neurology®, the medical journal of the american academy of neurology, showed that "people with alzheimer's disease who have large heads have better memory and thinking skills than those with the disease who have smaller heads, even when they have the same amount of brain cell death due to the disease." so, yes, it appears that size matters when it comes to heads. ...Read more

That would be a slow: Trajectory of head growth, which reflects brain growth. Review growth curve for his corrected age, not chronological age, with his pediatrician. Subtract his gestational age at birth in weeks from 40 weeks. Subtract the difference from his current chronological age in weeks. Slow velocity of head growth warrants both medical evaluation & a developmental assessment by an Early Intervention Program. ...Read more

My daughters ultra sound showed the fetus to have a body size of 59 percent and a head size of 88 percent. The technologist wasn't worried is it a prob?

Ultrasound: pregnant: It may be a problem if this is done late in pregnancy, but if less than 20 weeks pregnant, the body is routinely less advanced than head (biparietal diameter) size. Only later in pregnancy is the disparity between body and head size worrisome. Ask your obstetric provider to give you details, which depend on when the ultrasound is done in pregnancy. ...Read more
