Don’t Worry. But Don’t Wait.
Should you be concerned? Perhaps. If you are concerned, call right away. If your child is on track, you’ll be reassured. If your child needs assistance, you’ll find out now, when it’s the best time to help!
- At 9 months, talk to your child’s doctor if baby doesn’t babble sounds like mama, baba, dada; or doesn’t respond to own name.
