I know that you'll call me crazy, maybe i am worried over nothing but i need advice,first i want to say that i have severe asthma, docs didnt allow me to be a mom but i insisted and finally after 7 years in our marriage i got pregnant, and god gave me a gift. Now i have a daughter whom will be 8 months in a week(but she is born at 38 weeks c-sec due to my age(37),asthma and high blood pressure at 3rd trimester). So when she was a tiny baby i read an article about autism and i guess it had effected me and i started to analyse my little one since then. I remember issues about eye contact and i was very worried as she had poor eye contact when being held face to face or any close distance but she was also very social,smiley and loved to be held and cuddled...by 5-6 months she started to make better eye contact , then i started to worry about responding to name, but we didnt call her with her name a lot so i started practicing, by 7 months she started to look her name 90% of time... when she was playing she was so focused, not turning and looking to us but i guess nowadays she is better and looks us a lot during plays. She is only breastfed, sleeps good when someone is with her in the room, otherwise wakes up quite frequent like every hour, doesnt fancy solids a lot but we just started, loves other people, when she sees someone new she stares at them as if surprised, loves outdoors, smiles when smiled,loves peek-a-boo, i play peek-a-boo sometimes only with my eyes(stare at other direction and turn back my gaze to her) she loves it... but she has some habbits that worries me; she hates lying tummy or back, when lied on tummy cries, but the problem is everytime lied on back turns her gaze to ceiling,lifts chin up, shakes arms excessively and starts high-level whining until she is being sat. She can play alone with her toys(she plays long time if the toy is new) and whines time to time but goes back to playing, she doesnt bother when i leave the room, she changes toys quite frequent, when i sit with her playing, she looks at me a lot and loves to be played with. She is obsessed with the cat, if she can she wont leave the cat 7/24 :) She is a calm baby,she is patient,she doesnt cry unless she is very tired,really hurt or hungry. If she is not hungry or alone, she wakes up in bed and plays without bothering me(she loves co-sleeping). She is quite interested in tv or computer. At 6 months she started to do grunting and also straining but it started to get less after buying her a walker, she loved cruising in the house. But time to time she grunts and strains herself, doc said it is due to pain of teething. Her babble is strange also, mostly aaaa,hoooo,ooo,eeeiii,brrrr and a phone ringing sound and of course lots of grunting sounds, she sometimes says baba but not very often. By means of milestones, due to lack of tummy time she has no intention of crawling, after 2 min she makes with her arms this aeroplane movement and cries. She sits unsupported by 6 months, rolls by 5-6 months but she doesnt roll from tummy-back or viceversa as she hates it, she can but she doesnt prefer it, she is a side roller. She rolls to her sides a lot during sleep or laid down. She doesnt cruise but stands very good on legs, but she doesnt know to use her arm support very well, so also during sitting when she fells she cant get up until you give a hand to her. I am worried if she will develop some sensory issues as in my country docs and autism treatments are not well improved.

Dear Deniz. You are not crazy. You are a concerned Mama! I love that you said God gave you a gift. Your baby is truly a gift and along with the gift He equips us with grace for every season of parenting. It sounds like you have great medical care and that you are monitoring closely to keep up with your baby's growth and development. One thing that has brought me comfort in this parenting journey is making the commitment daily to love and care for my baby no matter what.
