So, my 9-month-old son's head is the size of a three-year-old's.
Both my kids have large heads. I knit adult-sized hats for my 5-year-old, and DS is wearing a size 3 hat this summer (try to find a sunhat with a chin-strap in that size! doable but not easy). DD's head is beginning to look more proportioned to her body now, but it took a while, especially as she's at the bottom of the charts for height and weight - it's an interesting look. DS at least is big for his age all over.
I tell myself that they need huge skulls to accommodate all those brains. ;-)
My 2yo has a big head. But so does his dad (who had to have his head measured every month b/c the doc's thought he was hydrocephalic - at least I think thats the word). He's 2 now, and this winter he had to wear a 4-7 size hat! Everything else was WAY too small. Oh well, he's a cutie anyway
This thread made me laugh out loud because YES!!!! My son definitely has a huge head! At six months we had to buy him 18 month hats and he definitely has shirts that won't fit over his head. He's almost a year but can still fit in anything from 6-12 months, except his head..... We have our 1 year check up coming up so we'll see if the doc says anything about it but doesn't seem concerned at this point. I think his grandad has a big head so I'm not worried. He's still a cutie, big head and all! ;)
Another big-headed baby over here! We actually had his head ultrasounded (though the soft spot) when he was 5 months old because it was so big. They checked for extra fluid, a tumor, etc. Everything was fine - I have a big head too, and so do my brothers. So I guess he comes about it honestly, although I sometimes think he'll never learn to walk!
I saw this on the main page. My children are no longer babies but they still have big heads. As babies, their head sizes were off the charts. My daughter had a CT scan because the doctors were worried about her head size (her twin brother's head was the same size but they were more worried that hers grew so fast). The CT scan results were fine.
All the cute children's hats they were never able to wear.
DD has always had at least a 75th percentile head circumfrance (except for the measurement taken right after she was born, she had squished down to 50th percentile.) at 23 months it looks pretty funny on her 5th percentile for length, below the chart for weight, body. her dad has about a 90th percentile head, even though he's pretty average otherwise.
