baby's head

Do anyone of you have a baby whose forehead is protruding? Normally kasi, our foreheads are inwards, diba? I'm just worried because my baby has a protruding/outward forehead and his head it in the 100 percentile growth chart in terms of head circumference. I'm worried that it might be hydrocephalus or something. His motor skills, etc. show no delay. He's super okay and bright. Please let me know if you have info. Thanks.

    Hello there. When in doubt, the best thing to do is to bring your child to your pediatrician ASAP and have his head examined. That's the only way to know for sure.
  • yes, the doctor recommends an ultrasound. her concern is more of the chest size is smaller than the head circumfrence

  • Thanks for the support and prayers. My sons underwent a cranial ultrasound this morning and the impression was normal. Thank god! His head, I guess, is just really big.
