"Normal" language: Language is one of 3 domains of impairment for a child to qualify for a diagnosis of autism. Delayed language is an exclusion for asperger's disorder, but normal language (not counting problems with articulation (clarity of speech)) not just in terms of understanding and using words but also in using language to communicate with others age-appropriately would make autism most unlikely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is head bobbing means.worried about that in my 10 m old otherwise normal healthy baby with development milestones met.ped assured not infantile s?
Though there are : many fairly benign causes of head-bobbing I'd be uncomfortable reassuring any parent without pediatric neurological & ophthalmological evaluations. Spasmus nutans alone, e.g., starts between 4 mos-3 yrs. & often resolves on its own. It's accompanied by nystagmus, rapid eye movements. Gastroesophageal Reflux is another possibility. I'd look into it a bit more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Jerking Episodes: HellCat262243. The jerking described is not typical. Infants, particularly newborns, have a startle reflex, but it passes after several months old.

10m old baby boy.development milestones met.still does jerk few times a day for a month now and move head up down while playing.worried if its seizure?
Query spasmus nutans: "Nodding spasms" is a rare condition that includes nystagmus, titubation, and torticollis (head tilt). Although common for infants to jerk once in a while, I consider a parental concern to be an important factor in the evaluation. The condition is benign and will self resolve. However, a complete evaluation by a pediatric neurology will put the matter to rest in order to rule out other conditions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Each milestone impo: All developmental milestones are important in that they relate to skill development. If one is skipped, like crawling to go directly to standing/walking there is little concern. But language and social emotional milestones are very important due to effects on communication, learning, and relationships with others. Adult support and stimulation is a key feature to help in development. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
