Big head

I went to my son's 2 month appointment last week and his pediatrician said that his head was big. His height and weight were good she was just concerned about how fast his head was growing. She said it could be hydrocephalus, but it seems minimal since all the neurological signs aren't there. It still makes me scared that something could be wrong and we just have to wait it out. I just want to know if any other moms have had a baby with a big head and he was okay at the end. His head measured 40.5 cm.

I'm sorry you must be scared:( I have no experience in this-- other than my half bro apparently was born w hydrocephalus and needed an operation.. Are you getting more tests done? When will you find out if he has it? Hang in there, thee will be fine- they'll take care of him:)

I don't find that very big. My sons was 36 cm at birth and 40 at his 2 month appt. He's 6 months and it's now 46 cm.

No we're not at the moment. The soc said that we would just have to wait and see since he has no other signs. Maybe we'll know if he show signs before his 4 month check up or at it. Thank you :)

A friend of mine has babies with very big heads. They even have to do special tests before the baby is born to make sure everything is alright. They are all normal, healthy kiddos! They just got their daddy's big head! :-)

My son always had a big head, always in the upper 90's for percentile. It was never an issue in terms of being anything medically wrong with him. He just got a big head from daddy
