Hi, my baby is almost 10 weeks old, and so far she is worrying me sick with her lack of connection.

She doesn't track toys on a constant basis,she rarely makes eye contact with me, when she does look at me, I don't think she's looking into my eyes either, she's just looking to my directions.

She also doesn't respond to noise, if I was clapping my hands next to her, she never look to see where the noise came from, but she does react to noise when she's asleep!! She has passed her new born ear screening...

I am so scared and worried... Can someone please give me some advises..

We are gonna see a paediatrician.. But I'm still very very scared!

Thanks for your advise Toyetta.. Yes we are getting another ear screen..

She is only 10weeks old so the Dr said it's too young to be diagnosed as autism..

In sorry to hear about your son.. Must be hard... I was hoping.. If you don't mind of course.. Are you able to provide me with some behaviour changes or signs with him when he was around 10 weeks old.. I know this is a big ask.. I understand if you prefer not the say anything..

Thanks in advance

That's def our concern.. But I thought she would be too young to get checked ..
