At age of four months they fully develop auditory maturity and they seek sometimes a softer level of sounds. And at the age of 9 to 13 months old usually give an elicits response when called his name.

A mother must be observant on child's hearing too especially on the toddlers stage that a child is very active. And seek medical attention at once you noticed any of the following guidelines.
Is your child complained of ear pain?
Is there an excess ear wax from canal or any profuse, or scanty , odorous or odorless drainage?
Is there a foreign objects seen in the canal?
What do the ears look like and where are they positioned on the head?
Is it injured or any history of trauma?
Is there family of hearing loss?

None of the above...they are both have good healthy ears but the problem of my youngest, the one in the picture, every time i cleaned his ears, he will laughed and keep on moving. I was mad and laughing at the same time..hehe he said tickle..tickle mama.

Yeah, both of them are physically active because they are boys. Just imagine the 20 and 8 years playing inside the room, haha.
