Hi: My son just turned 14 months old. So far he's a happy baby, very playful, 25 pounds, healthy. But I am just a little worried because he doesn't clap, point, wave, he doesn't show any sign of separation anxiety, he doesn't care if I leave the room or if someone else holds him, he's always putting his hands on his ears, bangs his head on the wall,I had him checked recently and the Ped said he's fine and that if by 18 months he doesn't point, wave, clap etc then she'll have him evaluated. Does anyone know why my son hasn't show any signs of separation anxiety, is it a bonding thing, autism, is it normal? I co-sleep him in the middle of the night and he is still breastfed. I'm a stay at home mom and we're always together, he's my first child. I've been reading all these Autism stuff and they mention all the red flags and my son has 3 of them. What do you think?, please share any experiences and thoughts.
