Mother's milk is sufficient for babies from birth to five months of age. No other food should be given to the child during this time. After five months, the baby should be given additional food along with mother's milk. Although after five months, the amount of milk in the mother's breast does not decrease. But at this time, the baby needs extra nutrition. So the child has to be given other food. Babies can consume breast milk along with other foods up to two years of age.

A child's head size should be as it ages

It is important to know whether the baby's brain is growing properly with age. By measuring the circumference of the head regularly, the volume and growth of the brain inside the head can be understood. Because head circumference increases with brain growth, head circumference does not increase without brain growth.

Hold the tape where the ears touch the head and measure around the head so that the tape is just above the brow bone and touching the very back of the head.

The late legendary pediatrician Dr. MR Mollah Sir has discussed in detail about the importance of head circumference in children in several books written by him. According to the chart prepared by sir, the head circumference of children at different ages is highlighted. You can share and save the text to know the circumference of the baby's head at different ages.
