  • he was delayed at speech and would take his diaper off and smear his poopy over himself and everything else. He also was extremely hyperactive and would shake his hands back and forth and spin around a lot.

  • He was the only newborn that I had ever seen that would arch it's back and scream when held. He would scream a high pitched cry for HOURS and finally fall asleep for about 45 minutes before waking up and doing it all over again. He never slept through the night. He is 21 now and he STILL doesn't ! lol

  • My son would gag and/or throw up when he ate 2nd stage foods, he lined up his cars and toys(still does) and had difficulty with eye contact. He's almost 13 now.

  • gagging and throwing up on textured foods (like stage 3 baby food), lining up toys, sensory issues to light, touch, sound....
