Average Newborn Head Size
Hope so: I suppose you mean inches in circumference.This is is on the larger size for an adult, but since mine is bigger, i think it is fine. It does make finding head gear that fits a bit harder. It would be a bit off the chart for a 3 year old. ...Read more
My daughter 16 days old, her head size 31.5cm. Is it microcephaly?
(my wife 21years old, her head size 53cm, its smaller than other same age girls).
Male puberty: Review of literature: mean stretch penile length at 1 year of age is 3.75 cm (+/- 0.54 cm) increases to 4.84 cm by late childhood then to 9.5 cm (+/-1.12 cm) by late puberty. This number reflects mostly white population. The penile length is rarely used to evaluate puberty because it is not accurate and not an early event for onset of puberty. Length and volume of testicle is more accurate ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Relative study: His rating means that 10% of infants at this age have a larger head circumference (size) while 90% are smaller.If the size has increased from 25-50-75-90% over several months it would suggest growth was too rapid.If usually in that range, it just means the kid has a big head.It hasn't bothered me any, except for having trouble finding a helmet/hat that would fit.. ...Read more
Hi my 9 week old sons head circumference measures 16 inches he weighs 11pounds 8ounces, is that in the normal range for head measurement.
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
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
No average: There is no average or normal when it comes to breast size. Some of us are large, some of us are small and some of us have had a plastic surgeon place implants to make them larger. Our body size and body activity (female atheletes tend to have smaller breasts). Size is individualized. ...Read more
10 week old baby length and weight both 85th percentile. Head circumference 95th percentile. Does this mean he has a big head in proportion to body?
Not really: I don't consider that difference worth anything more than noting. Big babies are big all over and this falls within the normal variation of such measurements. If the kid was 50% weight/length and 95% head, I would just measure the parents head to see where baby inherited it from. There are other issues to consider with a big head, but not from the reported info. ...Read more
Head circumference: Head sizes are relatively larger in small children. In a child without headaches, seizures or major organ deformities, the head circumference is genetically determined and you will not be able to do much about it at four years of age. Or six. You will want to discuss your concern withyour family doctor or pediatrician. ...Read more
Correlation between penis size at age 6 and size as an adult? My 6 year old is only 1.5 inches stretched. That's considered "abnormally small".
Here are some...: Should never dwell on a 6-yo boy with a 1.5-inch penis on stretch since he at least still has some 12 years to grow as long as his other parameters of physical growth such as height, weight, and mental development are within the normal range. Besides, his current penile length can not predict his eventual penile growth at reaching adulthood. Furthermore, should never let him know of your concern.. ...Read more
