A ready reference graph from Paediatrics shows that, the average child’s head, aged between 7 months and 2+ years, measures from approximately 40cm to 50cm circumference. Naturally, this can vary and some children in this age range have been recorded as having up to a 53cm head circumference. As the Thudguard design is based on the elastic around the front and back panels stretching, some tension may cause closer skin contact leaving a red mark or imprint similar to socks or clothing with elastic waistbands. This can also happen if the child has a lot of hair or due to over heating, (see user instructions in hot weather). These marks have been shown to fade within 5 – 10 minutes but do not resume with Thudguard if there is noticeable discomfort to the child due to tension of the band.
