When and why did Neera start to feel concerned about Zuzu's health and development?

I distinctly remember leaving a message for my pediatrician after Zuzu's 8 month appointment because I had forgotten to mention that she wasn't babbling. She's my second child so I knew that the expression of noise was very different than babbling. My pediatrician said to "wait and see" and that maybe her bilingual environment contributed to some form of 'normal delay.' I took her advice and kept an eye on it. I got most concerned when Zuzu was 15 months old. A family member wondered why her face was asymmetrical and that tipped me over to decide to go to a neurologist. I was already aware - and concerned - that she was behind with walking and talking, and this seemed like yet another issue (incidentally, I didn't notice the asymmetry myself!) To be honest, I had somehow convinced myself that she probably had an issue but that the issue wasn't serious. After all, there are a thousand reasons why a child would be talking late and I figured it was mild. My mind didn't put all the symptoms together b/c I guess I was in denial about the bigger picture - it's hard to see that there's something wrong with your child. Eventually, by 18 months, I finally 'saw' that all these small concerns might actually add up to something more important that I had been missing.

When and why did Alex start to feel concerned about Ellie's health and development?

Ellie had her first seeming allergic reaction when she was eating a mix of apple, carrot, and ginger baby food (from a company called Little Spoon that we still like and recommend). She had apples and carrots and ginger separately in the past. But this time, she ate more than the usual amount of the baby food during a trip to the park with her nanny.

Ellie has been a healthy 8 months old. Two days ago, at night, she had just come home from daycare and was sitting when she had three periods of shaking for a few seconds. She remained sitting up and seemed to be aware but she did poop and spit up during the shaking.

My child (last of 4) cried a lot. She was the epitome of colic. I exclusively breastfed her and constantly held her. I assumed her physical delays and speech delays were a result of the catering. It wasn't until we noticed her feet dragging a little that we realized we should have her evaluated. The physical therapist explained hypotonia/low muscle tone to us. Sadly, no one explained that it would be lifelong and the other delays that often come with it.

She couldn’t hold her head up till after a year old. She was very far behind her twin brother who was hitting milestones right on time or early. She was a floppy baby. She couldn’t coordinate suck swallow and breathe. She barely ever cried or made noise. Didn’t start babbling till over a year old.

Ronan is non verbal. He did develop some speech around 2 and then promptly lost it all. He’s always been physically way ahead so we tended to get ignored about concerns but have finally been able to get a diagnosis and therapy.

S.

Male

When and why did DZ start to feel concerned about S.'s health and development?

After the age of two, these was a gradual regression in his speech development. He began to gradually loose his ability to say the alphabet and numbers as he used to and slowly began replacing his words with grunting sounds. This later became associated with repetitive flapping of the hands and repeating the same you tube kid video over and over again.
