I am a first time mom to 8 week old twin boys (born at 36 weeks). I also have a background in child development and have worked in Early Intervention for the past 8 years, so I am very aware of developmental disabilities, but its very different as a mom! I know that I sound neurotic, but I worry about Autism in one of my boys. I feel like he is lacking a connection with me (or maybe its me with him!), he is very fussy, has stomach issues, doesn't look at faces or seem calmed by being held or talked to. Still not smiling or making eye contact. This has just made me concerned and then curious. For those of you with children on the spectrum, if you look back at their early months, did you see any signs that you did or did not realize may be indicative of Autism? Thanks for your input!
