My 8month old (tomorrow) DS has started to concern me somewhat.
He doesn't really respond to his name consistently - and when he does, I wonder is it just that he's responding to my baby talk voice, and not necessarily his name (make sense?) If I'm holding him and he's looking elsewhere and say his name, he often doesn't turn to me. Generally, he seems absorbed in other stuff and doesn't seem to hear me, or realize I'm calling him.
Also, coos, but still doesn't really babble. Doesn't point to things (don't know what age pointing is supposed to start - I know it should be there by 12 months) Other than that, he's happy, smiles socially, laughs, crawls, Gross and fine motor are great.He is my 3rd son and my last son was ahead of the game in most areas, so I don't know if I'm being fair.
So, I would appreciate any help/comparisons (unless it's clear your son is advanced, etc!)
THanks so much!
