Hi ladies just wanted to vent some concerns for DS1. Its been doing my head in and I find myself googling like crazy and convincing myself there's a problem. My DS1 is 11.5 months old, he is a very active kid, crawls all over the house, pulls up and cruises the furniture (albeit on tip toes at times which worries me) sits well. He follows me all around the house and loves to be picked up. So my concerns are he sometimes does this weird hand movement when he is in his high chair, not many words beside mama dada and baba (although his baby babble has alot more substance and sounds to it then say a month ago) he doesn't point or wave bye bye but he will imitate me if i clap, talk on the phone or blow raspberries. If he is touching something that he is not suppose to (like the microwave) he will stop and look at me if I say no but just continue to do it. He attends daycare 3 days a week and they have never mentioned any concerns. I hate being this paranoid all the time.

What are you concerned about exactly? He sounds adorable

Sounds normal to me. I think your worrying too much. Have you raised your concerns with the health nurse? I am sure she will reassure you or put you on the right track if she is concerned.

I think the weird hand movement and the tip toe walking concerns me the most as the stupid internet ofcourse goes straight to the worst case scenario. He's such a social kid but yes very active and demanding he squeals and yells alot but loves to laugh and its very easy to get him giggling.

I'm assuming you're concerned about ASD?
If SOMETIMES walking on tiptoes and a strange hand movement are your only concerns, then I think you may be overreacting. By all means, bring it up with a GP or CYH nurse if you're concerned, but he sounds like a completely typical kid for his age.

Heaps of bubba's tip toe when they are just starting out
Unless the hand movements were happening more often than not, i wouldnt be too concerned just yet.

I toe walked till I was 10 and I don't have asd. I just had short Achilles' tendons
Honestly everything you said sounds perfectly normal.

My son has asd and never did toe walk my daughters do but they don't have asd.
Try not to stress too much for a diagnosis of asd you would be looking at pages of issues. He sounds like a adorable toddler they all have their own quirks and tendencies
