my son is just over 10 months his HC is 49cm. Which is outside the 95th percentile. It was 25 percentile at birth and his height and weight are right about 50th percentile. It's like his head exploded (except it doesn't look strange). Doctors express concern, want to monitor his HC. However, the doctors around here are awful. One sent us to a dermatologist for cradlecap because he didn't think it was and one sent us for cystic fybrosis test over gas pains. A PA Mis charted his measurements and we were scheduled us for an emeegency neurologist apppointment. Everyone seems hysterical so I can't trust them to monitor my son. Right now (for two months) I have been measuring and plotting my son myself. Is this the right thing to do? His developmental milestones are right on and he seems happy healthy social and his softspot is still soft (so probably not hydrocephalytus). I have checked with other moms, no one is satisfied with peds around here. Should I keep measuring and plotting until time for year appt. Then take him four hours away to better doc with what info I have? Or should I take him there now? I hate not knowing how worried to be!
