My son will be 3 months old after 9 days. Yet he still is

This answer was rated:

My son will be 3 months old after 9 days. Yet he still is very serious baby, not cooing much. He will smile a lot, got eye contact, can hold his neck well, gaining well, but apart from crying we won't hear his voice. Should I be worried? Can I do something to improve this? He kind of has short neck, and very big cheeks , don't know if this is anything related , and he had a lot and now still colic which makes him very uncomfortable. He will choke sometimes while drinking and cough. He is half chinese half turkish.

Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. Dr. Yogindra

He is just fine. Give him time and expose to light low-volume music often. If hearing is good, nothing to worry.

Good luck.

Choking may be due to sudden gulping large volume so when beginning to feed, give small volume of feed by spoon first.
