My 4.5 month old has started to move his head side to side like saying "no" very often. Someone told me is a sign of autism. Is this true?
Not really: Is your child doing this as a reaction to your face? Is your child doing this when you are not looking at him? This sounds like an interaction between you and your child so I do not think this is concerning. Is your child doing any other concerning behaviors? Is he fussy and irritable a lot? No eye contact or does not seem to be interested in people including you the parents? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This is not specific or predictive of autism. Any kid could be. ...Read more

13 month old daughter has started banging head on floor when frustrated. Should i be worried about autism? She plays peek a boo & gives kisses/interac
I wouldn't: Head banging is one of the many amplifications of crying used to get your attention. It works well with some and self perpetuates.If you monitor the fit with peripheral vision and wait until it stops before looking directly at or interacting with the kid, it will often stop.This is common in preverbal toddlers. Reward the kid with more attention after they stop a fit than during to end this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This could be: sub-migraine headaches, so start with a general physical and ask for a referral, if needed, to a neurologist.

This should lower your anxiety, but if not, the anxiety could also cause hypersensitivity to external stimuli. Now, we have a different problem...anxiety. ...Read more
