Thanks for writing to health care magic.

What is the head circumference of your baby. A rapid increase in head circumference will help in identifying if there is hydrocephalus or not.

Is there any history of meningitis or NICU stay for your baby?

Since your baby is having all those problems I think you should consult your doctor to arrive at a diagnosis.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
