He did not show any developmental delays. I see some problems such as speech delays, hard to potty train, stubborn behavior, not willing to do what ever I say. Does any body has similar situation?

Thanks Sarah, I got an appointment with the doctor tomorrow and will take him. my son had wellness checkups almost every three months when he was 1 year old. I would have taken the issue seriously when the doctor mentioned that his head is small, I thought it was not a big issue ( as I did not see any abnormal things). But now I can see some behavioral issues.

Well Goldie, someone dropped the ball here. A baby needs to be seen at the least every 3 months for the first year. To monitor things like growth and developmental milestones. Is your child back in the US? If so, have him evaluated for any special needs immediately.

I feel so dumb Sarah, the check up was when he was 1 year old, then no wellness check ups afterwards ( he went to see the doctor for other reasons such as common cold and other things in India) . He behaves well when he is alone ( me and him/ any other person) but when there is a third person he behaves strangely, does not want to eat.

So the only check up he had since birth was his 1 yr.? Why were you not doing the well baby check ups? Also if the last time you saw him was when he was 1 yr. Then his behavior is due to no bond with you. You are a stranger to him.

Thank you so much for responding, It seems he was born with small head, when he was about one year old, I took him to the doctor for general check up and the doctor said that his head circumference is 0 percentile and she asked whether I have any concerns on it, I said that I do not have any ( as I did not see any abnormal behavior during that time). Then my son went to India with my parents and stayed there until now. They also said, that there is not something right about him. my parents took him to the doctor but my son did not cooperate with the doctor by not letting him touch. I will be taking him to the doctor either today or tomorrow.

Was his head circumference typical at birth and then fallen lower on the chart? Or has baby always been in the lower percentile? What does the doctor say about it, and was it double checked?
