What should be ideal weight of an infant? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
i have a baby boy.....whose birth date is 15th july 2014
hence as on date he is aging 3.1momhts
as per same, my son is weighing 5.08 kg, height is 60 cm and head circumference is 38 cm,.
height seems to be OK to me, but I am worried for weight and specially for HC
what was his birth weight?\
my pediatrician didnt say anything
his birth weight was 2.74 kg
I don't see any alarming signs here
what are you worried about?
About his HC growth
i have heard that kids with higher HC tend to be smarter
also, about his current HC percentile
But as per my knowledge his head circumference seems to be fine.
Average children at this age have head circumference of 38-39cms head circumference.
ok and does its true that higher HC, relates
to good growth rate of brain/
Both large head and small head are related to medical conditions.
So do not be worried, since your child seems to be developing well.
At this point of time\
I will like you to get your attention
to his mile stones
and not on the head circumference.
If the child is attaining his mile stones at average time period
it indicates his brain growth is normal.
In my opinion, his mile stone development will be more useful indicator than head circumference.
Hope I am clear.
Is there any other question?
