I don't think my little boy knows his name. When I call out to him, by his name He just ignores me. But he is alert and responsive in every other way. Should I be concerned ?

Start with his hearing first just to check that he does not have something like glue ear. Then work from there. Always say his name first when asking him a question or to do something. My daughter does not respond much to her name because the family call her Boo rather than Abbie. But if you ask her her name she will reply Abbie.

Look into this a bit before you worry to much.

You can definitely get his hearing checked just to give you peace of mind. I thought there was something wrong with my son went through that stage. I took him to see his pediatrician and she explained to me that there is nothing wrong with him and it is just a phase. In my son's case she was right. If I remember correctly he was approx. 1 1/2yrs old when going through this.
