How big were your babies heads when they were born?

I am totally obsessed with the size of my sons head...I do early intervention so I know and see way to much with children and their development for my own good.. My sons head at his four month check up was 47 cm which was the size of my daughters head when she was nine months. His head is in the 95th % and his height and weight is in the 80% so i know he is fine and his pcp is not concerned so I should just relax :) Its nice to know that other moms think about head size too..:)

I am so glad you possted your comment. My son was born early and is now 6 months old. His dr sent him for a ultrasound to see if he had fluid or anything making his head grow. Now tomorrow she is sending him for MRI because at the last checkup he was off the scale still. The ultrasound didn't show anything abnormal. So your post is giving me hope for his test tomorrow! I have been so worried!

My bubba's head was 38.5cm and he weighed just under 9lb. Even now his head is on 93rd centile and his length and weight is on the 75th. There's nowt wrong with him though, he just comes from a big bonced family. He was a right bugger to birth though, ended up with forceps after two failed ventouse (ouch!).
