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?
