Paediatrician

To answer your question properly I need to know what the actual measurement of your baby's head circumference is. In any case it is quite common for babies to suddenly go through a period when their head seems to grow rapidly. As long as this is within normal limits this is alright. Your paediatrician will monitor your baby's head growth and will tell you if there is any cause for concern.
