|What are the signs that my six month old baby can hear adequately?
By six months your baby should be responding well to the
sounds in her environment. She should turn her head towards
the sounds, looking for the source and respond with body
movements. If you hear loud sounds, she should startle,
or show other sounds of alarm. In addition, she should respond
to the sound of your voice, and other people who are familiar
to her. It should not be difficult to tell if she is responsive
to sound. If you are in any doubt it is worth asking your
doctor to check her hearing, or ask for the name of an audiologist
in your area as they specialise in this.
