Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us regarding your baby's increase in head circmference.

Of all your child's organs, her brain grows most rapidly, with the head expanding right along with it. That's why your pediatrician so conscientiously measures head circmference -- to ensure that the brain is developing properly.

Did your pediatrician express any concerns that have caused you to worry?

Regards,
Maryann
