  • What makes you think his head is too big? The doctors check that at every check up.

  • How big is too big? Most babies see the dr. pretty regularly, they probably already know how big the baby's head is.

  • um, the doctor would have seen that at birth, and every checkup after that. just because you think it's too big doesn't mean it is. i know someone who had kids and all their kids' heads were big, i mean like they might as well have been bobble heads. seriously, i'm not even kidding, i wish i was.

  • My nephew had a huge head he's since grown into, it's not uncommon to see that. I'm sure he's fine and if he wasnt Im sure that his parents would know

  • Well there are some races where the childs head is naturally bigger than most. If you are really good friends than she should have no problem with you making a comment on the childs head. There is no real easy way to tell them but just make the comment casual like "awwww, what a big old head you got there cutie" then try to bring it up to her "look at his big head (lol) you ever notice how big his head is compared to other little babies (lol)" try to make her take notice to that fact and not make it like, oh hey your kids has a huge old head you should get it looked at. Maybe she has thought about his head and she might talk to you about it. Then if she shows concern just be like "have you ever thought to have them looked at....?" Ice breakers icebreakers lol. My sisters baby is FAT FAT FAT not a cute oh look at the chunky baby he is OVERWEIGHT. I told her he was really big and she doesn't care. GOOD LUCK!

  • My one step son had a huge head. I mean seriously. When he played Tball, the youth baseball cap did not fit his head. They had to get him an adult one. He is now 20 and he has grown into it.
    This is something the doctor checks at every visit. They actually get out a tape measure and measure it. If it was too big, the doctor would know it.
