My 1 yr 7 month old boy baby used to talk in his own language earlier till 1 yr then suddenly stopped in fact he did not open his mouth for few months I started working on this but he doesn't call mamma papa even my husband &his family irritate me on this.earlier my child use to respond atleast now he stoped that even. He does not pay attention to anything what we say even to his name.
My child was absolutely normal till I was alone with child, once we got family viza, when child was 8 month I &my child joined my husband wer he had got job opportunity since he couldn't find house we stayed with other family. Where had restriction for child to play and we had adjust in one room keeping food articles I didn't know what to do? So started restrict baby moment, play.baby statred crying in the night my husband used come tried from work & starts scolding both of us. We started our fight from then daily I used to tell him to find individual house so that our bab6 can b happy. Finaly we shifted after 3 month but we conti.our fight since he felt individual house was not needed I made him spend. Now somehow I made him understand he to is feeling he was wrong but in between all this I understand my lovely baby is effected.
Iexplained my story so that I can get better suggestions to bring back my child to normal.

Change can be very hard on kids. It sounds like maybe your baby doesn't feel safe in his new home. Your baby might be waking up more at night because his new situation makes him feel afraid and wants to have you near him. Does your baby sleep in a crib? Maybe you could try putting a mattress down on the floor and you could sleep on it next to him. It might help your baby sleep at night, and if he wakes up, you will be right there to comfort him right away. Your husband could sleep by himself and get a full night's sleep. It might help with the frustration between you and your husband, which would stop the fights, which will make your baby feel safe and help with his sleeping.

Thanks Jen,
I really want to have open discussion with someone since I am all alone away from home.
No my husband doesn't shout @child. He shouts@me when hez angry, when baby doent sleep@ night, I reciprocate in same manner even though I know its wrong. I observed that when we speak laudly baby get scared and he will start crying.

It sounds like you are in a very difficult situation. Does your husband shout at your child? Maybe your child is afraid because of the fighting. Does he seem shy and afraid? Does he cry when he is away from you? Do you work during the day, or do you stay home with your child? All I can suggest to you is to give your baby as much love and attention as you can, try to cook when he is napping, and leave housework until after he is in bed at night. And look around to see if there is a person who is making your child feel unsafe or afraid.
