Average Head Circumference For 6 Month Old Baby
It is just a number: Around 42 cm (16-17 in). The number is somewhat meaningless from a medical standpoint... sort of like hair color. If one asks, "What is the average hair color of a 6 year-old girl", the answer is a meaningless color. Head circumference percentiles are compared to the percentiles of the parent's head sizes. Thus, if the parents have smaller heads, we don't worry about their babies' smaller heads. ...Read more

My 6 month old baby boy weights 20.4 pounds and he is 28 inches in height. Is my baby growing okay? Thanks doctors!!!
Big Boy!: Your doctor must be weighing and measuring your baby every time you go to for a check up. He is ~95 th percentile for weight and height. Which means he is growing very well and he is proportional as far as weight and height are concerned. If the parents are big and tall as well then this is the best growth for him. You should continue to visit his doctor and discuss his diet and his growth charts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Head circumference: A head circumference of 16 inches at 9 weeks places him at the 95% for his age and sex. This is considered normal. I don't have a height, but his weight is about the 85%, so it seems from that he is generally a big boy. The more important factor, however, is interval growth from visit to visit. If he's always been at the 25% and suddenly is at 95%, that's more concerning than if he is always 95%. ...Read more
My 5.5months old baby had hie when born. His head circumference is always in 25th percentile, are there any chances for him to develope microcephaly?
Difficult ?: I assume you mean hypoxia ischemic encephalopathy . If his head circumpherence is 25th% and stays on that curve that is good news for baby. The brain continues to grow and develop for 2 years so it is very hard to know if baby will have damage or not. Baby should be watched carefully and help given if does not develop normally. Mris may help to follow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
