I am just curious, how social was your ASD child as a baby?

You know, honestly, if I'd known anything about autism when my kids were babies, it would not have been my AS kids I worried about.

Mine didnt seem to show a preference for objects or people. The thing I remember most about her babyhood was she never slept. Hardly napped and never slept through the night until she was 2 years old. Plus she was very fussy. My mom called it colic. But I think she was just hard to console.

She is my 3rd daughter so I knew what I was doing caring for a baby and was confident. But still I had a hard time consoling her or caring for her. Could be be because she was touch sensitive.
