My daughter is almost 8 months old and for the past month or so has been flapping her arms. Sometimes right, sometimes left, rarely both but it still happens. She does it when she is happy, bored, tired, most of the day.
I have seen autistic kids do this too. She is on track developmentally but I remember this one kid I babysat also was ahead of other kids and then after he turned 2 everything just stopped and he wouldn't talk or look at one... it seemed to be overnight.
She also wont make eye contact when I pick her up. In fact when I am holding her she will physically move her body to avoid looking at me.
Also, she used to babble all the time all day long and now the most I can get out of her is "a" all day long.
I guess maybe I am paranoid and just need a little reassurance. Anyone else experience this?
