Would You Be Worried..

If your almost 16 month old...

Didn't make eye contact .

Didn't point at things that they want/find amusing.

Couldn't say more than 3/4 words.

Didn't wave goodbye or hi

Doesn't show any signs of being hungry/thirsty until they're almost dehydrated/starving so you realize that you had to put them on a schedule.

Couldn't shake head yes.

Didn't smile when smiled at.

Doesn't imitate things. Just one or two things. But not funny faces/weird sounds/dancing.

Doesn't show affection- Doesn't hug back, only kisses when asked to, doesn't want to snuggle if upset.

This is how a baby in my family is. Would you bring this to their mother's attention? I don't want her to feel like im insulting her but im concerned.

Would i be wrong to say something? My 12 month old is a normal 12 month old but next to this baby she seems older! That alarmed me
