I know 6 months is super early, but I am wondering if any other mamas have the had the same experience and it turn out okay, or they ended with an autism identification down the road.
My LO is 10 days away from being 6 months. She has met all of her milestones. She rolls, sits up, grabs with both hands, feet to mouth, holds toys and shakes them.
BUT she does this weird wrist flick thing with both wrists when upset, or excited.
She also flaps her armswhen super happy. I’m with her all day and she doesn’t really interact much with me, but as soon as my son or husband get home she lights up. Smiles, follows them around the room with her eyes.
She stares at strangers but won’t smile.
I can get her to laugh by blowing on her belly or making silly faces and she laughs and coos, but doesn’t babble she did for a while off and on, but not consistently and doesn’t much any more. She yells squawks and grunts at me , her brother, toys.
If I sing she looks at me, but never responds or her name. I can be right by her saying it but she won’t even look at me. If I clap, make a noise, or sing she looks.
When I carry her she puts both arms out by her sides straight. Like she’s on a balance beam.
When she is hurt (like gets shots) or cries she doesn’t like to be cuddled. She pushes away.
When she nursed she cuddles though, but won’t look at my face when I talk to her. She just stares at the wall, or my shirt.
I could be paranoid, but I’ve been around a lot of babies and being a teacher this has made me paranoid.
Any insight is helpful. Thanks ladies.
