I am concerned about my 11week old. She was born via csection at 39 weeks. With no complications. I noticed at first she didn't startle to sounds. She does startle to some sounds now. Hearing has been checked and they say her hearing is fine. She coos when you are in her face looking at her, but doesn't seem to react to other sounds around her. She smiles. Has anyone gone through this before with their LO? If so, what was outcome? I'm just so concerned that since her hearing was fine with both ABR and OAE testing that their could be more of a global delay. They can't do further hearing tests until 6mo of age. Any advice?

Your baby girl is taken in and processing her new world Mom. When the peditrician check her they will be checking her developmental stages. Babies are more alert than we know they are.
The first time I vacuumed my floor I was so afraid that the noise would scare my son, than 0ne week old, he slept thru it. I agree with the other parent that she is fine. smile(:

My guess is that she is fine. Babies that little often times don't startle with loud noises yet. I remember with my youngest being at a parade and the fire engines did their sirens right in front of us. She slept through the whole thing. I was amazed and did wonder, but she is 3 yrs old now and has great hearing. My advise would be to just watch as she grows. If there are things that seem concerning as she grows then have her hearing rechecked.

She doesn't stare above her head but I was concerned at first with her vision, but vision is fine

Hello Mom,
Just a few points to check, does your baby girl stair above her head often or just maybe looks at you only? Do not be alarmed, she may and could be a very Cool person. I know a young lady who is maybe 26 years she has the cool and patient personality I have ever known. You never know right! Keep us up to date. No worries for now Mom.
