    We also play the sausage roll game. We roll him up in a heavy blanket and the press over the top of him 'add some sauce, some mustard and some cheese' and then unroll him agai n.
    The heavy feel of the blanket and the pressing helps regulate their bodies if they have deep pressure issues.

    We do things like this with DS He loves rough housing on the bed with lots of pillows and getting himself under the doona.

    I would get him checked out. There are a lot of flags in your original post. I'm watching my ds at the moment but it's very hard to know when to seek assessment. He talks holds conversation, plays with kids but likes time out from them, cries at every single daycare drop off, very clingy, very affectionate, incredibly smart and observant so yeah not sure really. Hates hates haircuts and very fussy eater. Will wear a hat all day no problem puts a bike helmet on no problem. Very coordinated. I have peaked in on them in daycare and seen him sitting with the others reading a story. Needs me to put him to sleep each night. Gah who knows.

    For anyone in the 'not sure about my child' category, don't let your child being affectionate throw you. My little guy is super affectionate and has become increasingly affectionate as he has gotten older.

    He loves women and is known to warm to ladies he doesn't even know. He'll go up to women and sit on their lap or gesture for them to pick him up. Lucky we watch him like a hawk. He's extra cute, so his affections are pretty well received!

    Default Autism or just slow development??

    My nephew is autistic and also very affectionate. I wasn't describing it as not being a trait just describing him. I guess that's why it's a spectrum and each child is incredibly random with what they have and don't have.

    Ok so I have read some of the thread.
    I agree and disagree so this is us.
    Ds1 is high functioning aspberges(sp?). He is 7 now.
    He was reading, writing and talking at 2. He was social and affectionate. He has now been advanced 2 grades at school and we have noticed this last 2 years that he had no emotional understanding, empathy. Frustrated very often when faced with these kind of things. He has also been a toe walker since he started to walk.
    Ds2 is so different.
    He is not talking not even babble until 22 months. He has sensory autism. He doesn't eat much of anything and I'd on a prescription formula to help with that (as well as other issues). He has a hard time (meltdowns) at some voices or noises. Doesnt respond to his name or instructions. On the go all the time. Naps went out the window very early. Night sleep is still not very good. He does the stair into space thing all the time. Off in his own world. It's the only quiet I get really.
    He doesn't do cuddles but he is my booby baby. Ds1 stopped at 4 months but Ds2 uses it as his comfort. He never took to a toy or anyone else. We are just starting the picture cards with our speech therapist. It takes time for them to associate the photos with the meaning so give it time if you are going to try it. Be consistent. We are using it for speech/repetition and to help resolve frustrated mummy.
    Sorry for the novel. But if you want to know any more feel free to pm me or post on here any questions and I'll try to help.

    My DS who turned 2 a couple of weeks ago (think we were in the same due in group) sounds very much like your DS2. We don't know if he has ASD yet though, but it's a big possibility obviously. So I guess sensory autism looks possible. I've been reading up lot's on ASD lately as it's really frustrating not knowing what is actually going on with him but seeing there is different types and variants helps a bit. I see stuff in him and think nah no he doesn't but then see so many traits too.

    Hope OP is going ok? Hope you find answers, it's terribly frustrating at times not having that divinative answer.
