If you can’t bring it up to your uncle or his wife, what’s the point of speculating if there is something wrong? Call CPS and let them investigate if there is any form of neglect there. But I don’t see why you’d want opinions about a baby if by your own admission you can’t bring it up to the baby’s parents.

I don’t think op is implying negleCt. I must say that was an aggressive response. I would leave it to your fi mum to say something perhaps? But three months is still very early, give it more time. Also health care professionals will still be involved at this stage and will Be monitoring

It honestly sounds like a normal, sleepy 3 month old to me. If my son wasn’t hungry at that age, he would do the same. He is now a healthy active 2 year old.

sam-ee:  honestly all babies are different, give it another couple of months. Why dont you ask them something like, when did he first smile, or similar? My daughter was a serious baby and very starey. She is now a thriving toddler.

Hmm I just checked my notes and my son first smiled socially (not response to gas) at 8 weeks. Maybe keep close eye and give it a few more weeks before asking your mom to say something to your uncle. Hope the little guy is ok!

I’m assuming this woman has been taking her child to a doctor for checkups. I’d mind my own business. And if there is something wrong, perhaps they just don’t care to tell the world about it.

sam-ee:  Do you know if they take the baby to their GP for checkups? One would hope that a doctor would pick up on the fact that the baby was non responsive.

If I were concerned, I would mention it to my uncle.

You could ask something innocent about his last check up just to be sure that the child is going to his check ups, ie. “wow, he’s really getting big. How much did he weigh at his last check up?” If they’re taking him to see the doctor I would trust that the doctor would have said something if there was something wrong.
