Head circumference measuring tapes and bands are durable, inexpensive, and vital for pediatricians and nurses measuring the progress of babies' growth. The average newborn's head circumference measures about 13 3⁄4 inches (35 cm), growing to about 15 inches (38 cm) by one month. Because boys tend to be slightly larger than girls, their heads are larger, though the average difference is less than 1⁄2 inch (1 cm). And the average adult head circumference to be 55cm (21 3⁄4 ) in females and 57cm (22 1⁄2 in) in males.

 Head circumference tape measure, as one of the pediatric nursing tape, is made of PP material to ensure that the tape measure has high flexibility and allows repeated use (PP made tape is washable). To check whether the baby is growing healthily or not, you can not only take the measurement of the head circumference, but also the mid upper arm circumference(MUAC). So the head circumference tape is usually served as a MUAC tape as well. MUAC of between 125mm (12.5cm) and 135mm (13.5cm) indicates that the child is at risk for acute malnutrition and should be counselled and followed-up for Growth Promotion and Monitoring (GPM). MUAC over 135mm (13.5cm) indicates that the child is well nourished.
