My 11 month old is walking, babbling, and smiling/making eye contact. My only concern is that he doesn't do hand gestures. Is this an autism concern?
My 10 month baby clenched her fists and shaked with eyes wide open 1st time today when refusing food, like a strong body spasm. Epilepsy or autism or?
Likely NEITHER: If there was no change in the baby's mental status and they simply were showing the strong emotion of anticipation to eat then, what they demonstrated can be quite understandable.
