Took my daughter to her 6 month appt and doc said her head grew about 3cm since 4 month appt and wants her to see a neurosurgeon. Needless to say I'm freaking out now

First let me say I'm sorry you're going through stress about your daughter. It's natural to freak a little.

Next, you need to learn to ask the doctor questions. Every question in the book when it comes to your child. If you're wondering why? ask! If you're wondering what it means, ask!

Ok now the doctor is sending you to a neurosurgeon because s/he does not fully understand what is going on and needs someone who will know. It might mean nothing. Mind you a neurosurgeon does not mean there will be surgery. It is simply a person who can preform it if needed.

Take a deep breath and wait to see what the neurosurgeon says. Until then, love on your baby and carry on the same way you did before you found out.
