Our beautiful baby boy's head is HUGE!

Our baby boy is 7 months old and isn't due another check up until 9 months. However his head is really big and it's becoming more and more obvious. Do you think he needs to be checked out immediately or is this just a normal growth spurt and safe to wait until his 9 month check up? He wears size 18 month sun hats and today he was playing alongside some two and three yr olds and his head was noticeably larger than all of them! Everyone comments on his head size, so it's not just mummy-paranoia! Neither me or my husband have particularly large heads. Instinct tells me he is just fine as he seems super healthy and happy - but I've read that a large head can be a sign of something called Hydrocephalus. Any advice on large headed babies?

If i were you i wouldnt wait for the next check up.Call the doctor and tell them whats going on. They will be able to tell you if you should come or if its ok to wait. I dont mean that you should be worried,but rather call them now to find out if everything is ok,not that his head has water in it. Good luck
