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. Even though most infants have their hearing tested at birth, these tests are not 100%, and a normal test at birth does not eliminate the possibility of hearing loss. ...Read more

Communication : At 4 months, typically-developing babies goo & coo reciprocally, as you describe. At 6 months they produce a string of syllables: da-da-da-da, ma-ma-ma-ma. At 9 months those become a non-specific ma-ma & da-da, with 3 words at a year, a specific ma-ma, da-da & ba-ba. At 6 months, learned behavior begins; babies lift up their arms to be picked up.

July 28 ~ Aug 3: In real life, a few days is the same as one day. That's because life is never exact, and all dates are estimates. That means July 28, 29, 30, 31, Aug 1, 2, 3 are all the same "moment in time". Sex anytime or several times during that "moment in time" can give the same ultrasound result, the same due date, and the same birth date (the date when the baby comes out). So, the numbers do sound right. ...Read more

Give it time: Almost all children go through a lisping or stuttering phase that may last a few days or several weeks. Try to not point it out and give them plenty of time to speak and it usually goes away on it's own. If it persists or they become embarrassed, your doctor can help you find a speech therapist. ...Read more
