My 10 month old babbles, waves & claps. her eye contact is really good & good hearing. however she usually doesnt respond to her name, very rarely she responds by waving back at us. could this be autism related?

Development: Still too early to tell. Subtle symptoms of mild autism are not typically confirmed until age 18months. As long as your baby is meeting her milestones, there is no problem. Make sure you are taking her to each well child check so that an unbiased person can evaluate her development.
