Hi. My daughter was born premature and underweight. She weighed only 1.26 kgs when she was born and was confined to the incubator for 3 weeks. At present, she is almost 3 years old and weighs 10 kgs and is very active and understands what we speak. But she hasn't started talking as yet. Secondly, she never turns around or responds when we call her name. At the same time, she is hypersensitive to sounds. She detects and reacts even to the slightest of noise. But I am worried why she never responds when we call her name. She understands whatever we speak and responds nonverbally. But though she produces sounds and utters words occasionally which she never repeats, she hasn't started talking properly. I am really worried. Is it a serious problem?
