Q.

Not talking anymore

Hi there. My 5½  month little boy use to be such a blabber mouth always cooing and making noises, etc. For the past 2 weeks or so he has become extremely quiet, not talking much or making noises. He will smile and laugh on occassion, but other than that doesnt talk as he use to. This is worrying to me. Is this normal?

This is perfectly normal and you do not need to be concerned. Your baby is probably teething and he has other things on his mind now.He will start talking later on.

Have his ears tested, he might have got an ear infection and be having trouble hearing.
