So I've noticed for a while now that my 17 month old doesn't look at me when I call his name, I would have to call and call and call before he turns to look at me, sometimes he doesn't look over at all.
He has a hearing tests scheduled in but I don't think that is his issue... His hearing test at birth was 100% fine and he does hear other sounds and noises. (I know because a mouses fart would wake him!)
He is also starting to try and say some words and sounds etc.

Should I be worried about this?

Does he make lots of eye contact otherwise? Like when you're playing, talking, singing etc? When he plays with toys does he engage with you and make lots of eye contact?

My ds passed his hearing tests at birth and another at 2.
At four we noticed he was having trouble hearing and he was complaining about it.
He had temporary hearing loss (70% lost) in one ear for 3 months.
His hearing is back to perfect but we have to be aware that it could return and if it does it may not return to 100%.

He does make eye contact when we play if he's on my lap and if I talk to him and ask him to pass me a toy etc then he will. It only seems to be when I call him and not every time, but about 80% of the time.
Like now I've just tested him and I called him 4 times before he looked around.
He does get a lot of wax coming out of his ears, big clumps of it, I reckon it's more than what DS1 ever had!

My son is 2 and doesn't respond when I call his name. He knows his name, he will say "My name is (name)", will point and say his name when he sees his reflection or photos. He just doesn't respond when he's called. He will, however, respond to "marshmallow", "chippies" or "cookie". Selective hearing lol.
