But I would tend to stop any of the MS drugs prior to pregnancy and would NOT restart until after birth, unless breast feeding desired, which would delay restarting med. ...Read more

My child does not imitate sounds or babbles. Should I get a hearing test done?

My child does not imitate sounds or babbles. Should I get a hearing test done?

Yes: If your child is not developing their verbal skills at the expected age, they should absolutely have their hearing tested.

Head growth slows normally after 6 mos., but should plot along or near the same growth curve it's always followed. Strings of babbling at 6 mos. become non-specific " da-da, ma-ma" in 9th mo. Gross motor is good. Screens are on firstsigns.org. Follow-up with pede. & MS Early Intervention Program if concerned. ...Read more
