Hi there just saw this post and I am an audiologist (hearing doctor) so wanted to add in that babies under 6 mth of age do not have the proper head control to know how to look for sounds all the time. They are still trying to make sense of sounds and don't really know how to respond properly at this young of an age. Most will respond to sounds in front of them or things they know (mom and dads voice) If they passed a hearing test at birth I wouldn't worry, but mention it to your dr and they can have the newborn test repeated. By 6 mths if still concerned, then they can be put in an actual soundbooth and tested that way. Hope this helps and if any other questions feel free to PM me.
