My fiance's son is 2 years and 2 months old. He walks, not the best balance though, doesnt speak a work just makes odd noises and very loud screetches. He doesnt eat any normal food really. his mom still has him drinking out of a bottle and only gives him chocolate milk and some juices, almost like hes still an infant and needs the milk as often as an infant. Hes not a happy child, it takes him longer than usual to get used to things or people. He does smile around my children, but thats about all i see, but we also only have him every other weekend. He doesnt know how to feed himself and doesnt seem to respond appropriately to what we say or follow any directions. My daughter is 2.5 years old. Shes been talking. fully potty trained. eats everything. feeds her ownself. and drinks out of a normal cup and understands just about everything and runs jumps and does the steps... he doesnt really do any of this. Now his mother does speak a lot of spanish, so i dont know if this has anything to do with it, but he also doesnt speak a work of that. she takes him to his appts and doesnt see anything wrong with him, she thinks this is all normal, ut me having two kids.. i look at where he is and think theres something wrong. It could be nothing, maybe hes developmentally delayed.. or maybe something else... but its not my place to do or say anything, i dont communicate with her, and my fiance doesnt respond to anything i bring up. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas of what i can do or what could be wrong?
