My 17 month old has very odd behaviors. Nothing like my first child. She pulls out her own hair, smacks her head, and bangs her head on the floor when mad. She has never liked cuddling and shes very serious. It took a year before I got a smile out of her. Only her brother could èver make her smile before she was a year old. She seems to ignore us most times when we call her name. She says bye, hi, mom, and dad. She is still not walking and refuses to try. She is incredibly demanding and yells alot, actually quite mean. Much like a drama queen. Very different from my very sweet sensitive boy. A coworker mentined she shows signs of autism. When googled, all they seen to say is look for signs of regression, which i dont see, just delayed devvelopment. She also doesnt play well with others, except her brother, prefers her independance. Can someone please give me their advise or experience?
