    Hi all my lo is 6 months and 3 weeks actual age. She is 5 months 1 week corrected age as she born early. Im starting to get concerned as she will rarely respond to me calling her name. Shes always seems to be engrossed in something else. Any one else with or had a lo who didnt respond much at this age? Grateful for any responses x

    I really wouldn't worry, it sounds completely normal to me. My lo is ten months and doesn't respond to her name, I just keep trying with the hope she'll eventually recognise it!

    My LO has only just started responding to his name from about 9 and a half months, so I really wouldn't worry

    my LO started responding to his name around 7 months, but I think it was because we had a family crisis lasting a few weeks and there were so many family members around using his name to keep him entertained etc.
    Even now, though, he has selective hearing with me and his dad, if there's something he's too busy with, a toy or the tv, he will just seem not to hear his name!

    My 3 year old ignores me. always did. she might or might not pay any attention when i repeat her name about 30 times. She probably secretly thinks she's the queen of universe.
