I am worried that my 5.5 month old son doesn't coo or babble. I know that maybe it is too early to expect him to babble, but I do think by now he should be cooing. He smiles a lot, laughs out loud, and has good eye contact. He also groans, whines, whimpers, grunts, and coughs. But no "ooooh" or "ahhhh" noises. I am worried that this may be an early sign of autism.
So, my question is: Has anyone else experienced very late cooing and babbling and what was the outcome? Delayed speech, just fine, autism, etc.
Thanks for your time!
