loss of speech could be an early sign of autism. there is a great website called www.autismspeaks.com that has lists of symptoms and things to look for. if you are concerned start to keep track of other milestones like loss eye contact, temper tantrums, looking lost at times, withdrawing from contact. my oldest is autistic and the BEST thing you can do is to talk with your doctor and make sure that you are not missing anything. early intervention is a huge blessing and will make a world of difference in your child if he needs it

I just watched a documnetary about something similar last night. It was about children who were speaking then suddenly stopped. It was called selective mutism. There is tons of information available on the internet. It may have nothing to do with your child but it does sound like some of the stories parents were talking about last night. Here is one of the links http://www.theselectivemutism.info/sympt...
I hope everything works out for your baby.
