I'm sure this has been spoken about before but as many of you know with an almost 2 yr old little boy it can be difficult to do ANYTHING. So my little guy will be 2 on Feb. 13. He only says a few words often with one of those words being Momma. He uses it as a demand, a term of affection *as in he calls almost everyone Momma and just sometimes yells it. He says bye bye on rare occasions. He says "WEE" for something he wants to play or when he goes down a slide. Mostly though he grunts or growl. To me it seems he has his own language. He can't really say what he wants. He just gestures wildly to try and convey his needs and I have to guess. I'm pretty good at figuring it out.
He holds the side of his left head a lot. I ask if it is an "ow" sometimes he says yes. I have brought him to the Dr. for it and have been told he does NOT have an ear infection. I have been told everything from he is teething to he is just growing. I am changing Drs. Starting Feb. I mention the ear thing because I started wondering if it could be his hearing. Although can a Dr. see any damage or anything from checking to see if it's an ear ache? Also how can they test his hearing at this age. He does understand a great deal. He can hear me. He will do things I ask or stop doing something when I say.
I'm just very concerned. Sometimes he puts both his hand to his head as in pain. He doesn't cry he just looks like something is bothering him. Then it passes and he goes about his playing like it didn't happen. And because he doesn't talk I can't ask him what is going on. I don't even know if these things are even connected.
Would you guys out there be concerned if it were your son?
