HI everyone . this is my first time entering into a group which i feel the need to be in right now . Its been like weeks I have been thinking about my baby's development. Me and my husband is having some strain in our relationship because of this. I think there is something wrong with my boy and my husband believes otherwise. Its not that I dont believe in my son's capabilities but I dont also want to be in denial.
I have a boy and his 14 months will be 15 months on december 22. most of the time since he was around 8 months he watches tv, and honestly there was not so good interaction in the house . it was just him and me always since my husband is always at work. I feel guilty that I did not interact with him before and maybe he is not like this now. over all he is a very happy boy , he dances when we sing to him , he points to pictures in the books like train, ball , dog etc, when we play and i will give him spoon he will pretend to feed me the spoon and say "hmmm" , he also does that on meal time, he responds to his name atleast most of the time but when he is playing he sometimes not answer.he loves playing peek a boo, and even cover his face with blanket and wait for me to remove it and he will laugh like an angel. the things that made me worry are: he flaps his hands when he gets excited , he does this everyday but not every minute just when he is excited, happy etc, another thing is he does not have real words till now , he babbles mamama, dadada, bae , and all different babbling but no real words and he did not call us mama or dada . when he was 9 months old i taught him to say mama and he did follow , and used it like twice when he cried and he called me mama and that was it. he did not practice it that much so I believe he forgot to say it anymore?? i am teaching him now to say it again and unfortunately he did not follow . would that be considered regression? he just used the word like twice since he learned it . sorry for the long rant. i am super depressed and anxious! i cant eat and sleep.
ps we already went to his pedia and told us to give him till his 15 month well baby check up. pls enlighten me
