Autism

Does anyone else feel like social media (tik tok especially) is currently extremely anxiety inducing in regards to autism? It feels like I’m constantly seeing videos and near enough everything seems to be considered to be “an early sign of autism” e.g splashing in the bath, flapping hands when excited, liking tv rem...

Reassurance?

I’m writing this just to have some reassurance from others ( I’m not taking anyone’s opinion as medical don’t worry) Everyone these days is questioning whether their child is autistic and even if that’s the case with mine it is what it is, but I was hoping someone could give me some reassurance. So my son is comin...

Whinging noise or just finding his voice??

My almost 5 month old makes this noise so much it feels constant. He’s fed, clean and it’s after a nap. Also tried giving calpol in case it was maybe a little pain or something. To me and my husband it sounds like whinging or like he’s unhappy/ needs something but we don’t know what. My mother in law said it’s just ...

Play Time Sounds

Hi everyone, I’m just wondering what do you do when your little one is playing in terms of sound - I don’t want to put on the tele, as I want him to actually play with his toys/tummy time etc, but hate him sitting in silence doing so, so I feel like I should put the tele on for some background noise, otherwise I put...

Baby babbling on and off.

We had a few days of our baby babbling away and now he’s stopped. I’m getting so nervous as he isn’t that vocal. Is this normal.

22 month old to be tantrums

My 22 month old is having an increase in tantrums recently and seems to get very frustrated when she struggles to do something. For examples when she struggling to put a puzzle piece in to its place. She’ll put it correctly but needs adjusting so tweaking them fine motor skills. She doesn’t have the patience someti...

Worried about development?

My 18m old knows about 6-7 words but rarely says any of them, he has been walking since before Christmas but now doesn't like walking outside and cries to be carried. He's ok walking around the house, he practically runs but he's gone backwards on his walking outside and with his talking. I'm just a bit worried. Any...

Baby suddenly acting like he's scared of grandparents

Little boy is 16 weeks and the last couple of weeks every time his grandmothers (he does it with his grandma on both sides) hold him he tenses up and cries really loud, like he's scared or in pain, like a really intense cry. He used to be fine with them, so I don't know why he's doing this. Both grandmas are so warm...

Baby shaking head in high chair

Does anyone else’s baby shake head? Mine only does in the high chair and it’s almost like he’s slightly zoned out. Is this normal.

Crawling over Walking

My little one took their first two steps at 7 months old and was able to walk across the room at 10 months but is still not fully walking.. they can stand from sitting etc. is this a concern that it’s taking so long from first steps till now? They do walk but would rather crawl?

Baby constantly screeching 🤦🏼‍♀️

Are your 9/10 month olds just constantly screeching throughout the day unless being held on their feet? It’s literally all day long, it’s the worst sound in the world, it is absolutely driving me round the bend. It’s impossible to do anything without my baby just (I don’t even know how to describe the noise, it’s al...

Can your baby hear your thoughts?

Okay I know this may sound a little crazy but do y’all think that your baby can hear what you’re thinking? Sometimes I’ll talk to myself in my head and I’ll be saying that I’m going to record her moving and then she just stops 🤣 and it happens every time!!

Educational shows/ YouTube vids

So my son understands most of everything I say (acts like he does, we also do a few signs) but he simply doesn’t want to say new words for me 🤦‍♀️ I guess it’s one of those mom things because he will say new words for everyone else :( Anyways I’m trying to expose him to more even though we don’t get out much.…

19 month old only hitting me as a game

My 19 month old will hit me thinking it’s a game. He laughs and says “ow” so he thinks it’s a game. I’ve tried ignoring and not reacting, I’ve tried getting upset and even sternly saying no and that hurts me but it doesn’t make a difference. Anyone else going through this? It’s literally just with me, not my husband...
