I don't know what's causing what for us, but my son has both a big head and the shape of his head is clearly in the bad category using WAP criteria--big at the top, then narrowing down with a pointy chin. I can see the shape problems, and it seems like they correspond to the tongue tie problems we've discussed before--narrowing top palate/high palate (and likely posterior tt) and then lower jaw that's even smaller (his teeth make a V pointing toward his tongue which has a nice anterior tie too). But I've always thought the big head thing, for us (can't be for everyone, I wouldn't think, and big heads don't run in my family) was more tied to the mercury toxicity thing, it's one of the things that sort of fit together after I realized what was going on health-wise with me. My daughter, kiddo #1 who got somewhat fewer nutritional deficiencies being my firstborn, doesn't have a big head, and her overall head shape is different (also a high palate, makes me wonder about whether her sinuses have enough room, future sleep apnea-type things based on concerns about my husband) but she doesn't have an anterior tt and the pointiness to her chin is much less. And although she's also got a high toxic load, she takes after my husband and it doesn't express at all the same as my son (very subtle).
Both kids have some allergies, fewer than most on this board, but my son has more and has stronger reactions than my daughter (vomiting with a few bites of ice cream, vs my daughter occasionally drank cow's milk without any immediate reaction).
