  • My DD always ignores me when she is playing with her toys or if she is watching tv and she is only 8 months old... I know she isnt supposed to watch tv but its pretty hard when someone else is watching tv and she just HAS to watch it too... shes hilarious, you can never get her attention when shes watching something

  • Mines only about 3 months old but he ignores me a lot. He loves it when i talk to him and he'll smile and coo like crazy, but if hes fixated on something else forget about it.hehe

  • How old is your baby? My son used to ignore me around 4-6 months. I know that he knew his name but would only respond sometimes. Now he's 7 months and responds all the time. If he's older he's either doing it to ba a stinker and you should not let him get in the habit of doing that or he will think its a game to ignore you, or you may want to watch hime to make sure there aren't any other symptoms that are unusuall.

  • sounds normal.. when our DD is focused on something that she loves to do or playing with her favorite toys then she wont listen to me and basically ignores me. but other than that, no. she is a good girl
