Hi, I'm a little worried about my son and I'm wanting to find out if I should be worried.
He's 41 weeks old today. He had never wanted to be cuddled and resists if I try, he doesn't mimic me, the odd occasion he will stick his tongue back out at me but it is rare. He only says dadada yehh and bababa an when he does, it's not at us, it's randomly. He responds to his name occasionally, other times he will ignore us. He does crawl, pull himself up to standing position and walk with assistance, smiles and laughs. He's very interested in everything around him and very curious. Should I be worried?
I wouldnt worry just yet... i have 2 children, one of wich is autistic... the other is 2 years old and doesnt talk yet, he has a speach delay but is starying to imitate sounds... as long as he is interested in things around him and responds to things around him i dont think its a big concern... but you can look into local programs like early steps and have him evaluated just to be on the safe.
Thanks for your comment, it's given me some reassurance and today he's been responding to his name a lot and I've also been pointing to things which he has been responding too. I'm going to stop worrying for the time being and see how he develops over the next couple of months
