hai, my baby is 8 months and 15 days old. Her head circumference at the time of birth was 34 cm. Now it is 47 cm. On doctors advice we have done a MRI scan and by seeing the report he told that she has a complication with CSF(Cerebrospinal fluid)production. Can anybody help to know more about this...
