Please any kind of advice whould really appreciate it Thank you in advanced
Hi there and welcome. This is late coming but wanted to respond to your post. Your baby is little, I would not think in terms of autism at this point. I have two boys--- one who has sensory integration disorder and one who doesn't. Neither of my boys really liked tummy time! Both would cry.
In truth, often kids with autism don't show too many signs as an infant but rather around 1.5 years or later, start to digress which is one of the signs of autism.
If you are worried about your child's development, I would talk to your pediatrician. In the United States, we have early intervention programs. Each city has contracted people that come to your home and evaluate your child to see if there are areas that he/she needs help. Occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy for eating or eventually talking all are employed. They help address any concerns a young one is having. Birth to 3 is the program. You can request this through your pediatrician or local children's hospital. It's a govt. program and can be entirely free based on your financial situation.
I would look into this since you do indeed have concerns. It could be as simple as 'low tone' which babies do have and need some help strengthening the muscles. good luck.
