My almost-8-month old baby doesn't seem to know her name yet.

Has anyone experienced their 7-8 month old not responding to their name? She doesn't look in my direction when I say her name (or anyone's direction who says her name). I am getting kind of worried. I read that babies should respond to their names at 5 months.

She is very aware, observant, and alert. She laughs, interacts with me, and plays just fine. It's just the name thing that is getting me worried.

Any advice or sharing of your own experiences would be helpful.

Thank you!

I don't remember when my son started to turn towards his name but it definitely wasn't that early. I'd try not to worry about (but we're moms and that's what we do). Now he knows his name and ignores me ;)
