My daughter is 20 months old, she is familiar with the alphabets and its sounds, can distinguish numbers 1-10, and can read some three-letter words even four like cow, duck, ant,cold,fish,dog,etc... She doesnt speak yet only babbles to us when talked to. But she stamp her feet and babbles when we dont give in to what she wants. She is a sweet baby but doesnt kiss us and only wave byebye very often. She laughs and plays a lot at home but is very quiet when we bring her outside. I am very concerned of my daughter that she could have autism. Please advise. Thank you mommies in advance.

Sounds like a perfectly normal 1.5 year old to me.

You need to stop comparing your baby to others. Every child is different - that's what makes us all unique.

Thank you so much for your answer sarah. I know, i am just a very worrisome mom. At work, My officemates kept comparing their babies to mine and that adds to my worries. Yeah, i will just enjoy my daughter now. She doesn't stay a baby forever. Thanks a lot.
