Hi there ~
I understand your concerns for your 7.5 month infant. It is sometime normal for infants to have a slight delay in their developmental milestones, it might be worth the wait for another month before you bring this concern up with a pediatrician
. I am sorry about the hearing loss
, but there are options and you do not need to be worried about it. There are many children with this disorder that have done well in the future. I am also glad that your infant's heart is good. However I recommend getting another MRI
after about a month to rule out hydrocephalus
. I hope this helps. I wonder if there are groups in your area where similar parents are joining together to discuss their ideas. A lot can come out of these groups.
I hope this helps. You child is not different, only differently-abled.
Take care and have a lovely day!
