Hearing Loss in Babies, Ages 7 Months to 1 Year

Overview

You can watch your baby's behavior to check for hearing loss. If you notice a change, your baby might have hearing loss.

Does your baby:

  • Listen when spoken to?
  • Turn or look up when you call his or her name?
  • Respond to requests like "come here" or "want more?"
  • Recognize words for common items like cup, shoe, or juice?
