My FIL mentioned to my DH a couple of weeks ago that he thought my 17 month old son might be hearing impaired since he wasn't responding to his name being called. My husband and I have been keeping an eye on this for the last couple of weeks and he doesn't always respond when his name is called or when a loud noise is made. He has a few words in his vocabulary: Mama, Dada, Baba (which is what he calls our dog Baxter), wow and go. Loud noises used to scare him a lot, but not so much now.
I talked to my pediatrician a couple of weeks ago when we were in there and he said that we should keep an eye on him and if it starts to be noticeable that he is not hearing things to bring him in.
Tonight, after he had fallen asleep, my husband and I went into his room and banged 2 iron pots together over his bed and he didn't budge. I'm planning on calling the pediatrician tomorrow, but at the moment I am completely freaked out.
