Ok, I know that my little boy is probably just fine, but I'm still concerned about his babbling...or shall we say his lack thereof. The twins are almost 8 months old, born at 35w5d; they were a fairly good size at birth (6lbs12oz and 7lbs7oz) and both passed their hearing tests in the hospital.
William has been babbling away for about a month now. He's making b and d sounds, vowel sounds and sounds like he's mimicking conversations (voice lilts up, or goes down depending). John on the other hand is completely happy to just squeal with delight or blow raspberries. He makes "a" sounds and that's about all I hear. He's a very laid back little boy. I know he hears me because I can call him from different parts of the room and he'll turn to face me. I just don't understand why he hasn't started babbling yet. He'll even watch me intently when I make silly sounds to him or when I'm chewing my food, but doesn't seem to mimic the sounds or movements.
Can someone here reassure me? Is it a twin thing? Could he possibly have some hearing loss that we don't know about?
