|My baby is not very sociable. I notice at the baby outings
that the other babies play games with their mothers, but my
baby does not even make eye contact. Should I mention this
at the annual checkup, or will she grow out of it?
There are a couple of behaviours that your doctor would
like to know about at the first year check up. The fact
that your baby does not make eye contact or socialise could
be an indicator of a problem and should definitely be mentioned
to your doctor.
In addition check these
- baby should turn her head towards the
sound if you call her
- baby should enjoy playing sound games with you, for
example when you mimic the sounds each other make
- baby should be communicating to you with gestures
about her needs
- play games such as peek a boo
