Re: Hearing Loss

I honestly recommend pushing for a hearing test as soon as possible, babies CAN BE DELAYED even at 11 months! My two sons were born Deaf, had I not gave them access to language from day one, they would've been delayed. My youngest is two years old right now, he goes to an infant program for Deaf kids (half day, 5 days a week) - there are kids on the language spectrum, ones whose parents did not push for early intervention as soon as possible, no language exposure, etc (the kids pretty much have no language, they just run around).. then there are kids whose parents pushed for early intervention ASAP and exposed them to language from day one (their kids are conversing like typical 2 year old toddlers, playing, having fun).

Please don't marginalize your baby's issues.

Thanks for sharing! I definitely don't want to marginalize any real issues that are there.

Re: Hearing Loss

I would definitely get hearing checked. It can delay speech (they pronounce sounds the way they hear them).

Re: Hearing Loss

The test is pretty easy. My oldest enjoyed it. My oldest was slow to talk and we kept waiting and then at 2 we finally did the test and he failed. He rested and failed. They ended up putting tubes in his ears since he had infections and the doc showed us what they removed from the one ear. it looked liked a wad of semi-dry glue. He started talking so quickly after that. But, he always pretend talked. He could always hear loud noises and responded to those.

My youngest had a speech delay but he wasn't interested in communicating as a whole except screaming, he has autism so a completely different game. He got tubes as well and we were hoping for the same miracle but it didn't happen. I wouldn't be too concerned at 12 months but wanted to let you know our experiences.

Re: Hearing Loss

I agree. If you truly think something is wrong and waiting a couple months would make it worse I would lean more towards getting tested sooner than later. But that's something I'm not sure about, I'd ask your doctor or do some research.
