    nobody can tell if a baby has or will have adhd until they are an age where they interact with their surroundings… more like kindergarten or grade school. you shouldnt be worried about it now, cause there is nothing you can do about it anyway.

    its not that bad having adhd… people learn to deal with it as they grow.
