hello Aashish,HCM ,length nd weight are the indicator fr proper growth n dev of babies. head circumference will show the genetic heritage along with proper brain development as well the amount of csf (cerebrospinal fluid) like in fr eg in hydrocephalus hcm is more .so it's needed nd must to count circumference. Head circumference is a measurement of a child's head around its largest area. It measures the distance from above the eyebrows and ears and around the back of the head.

There are so much things not told by dctrs , If it is really important should we insist on paed. To tell or is there any method to measure at home, All Mommies and Fathers kindly share !!
