The fact that Paxton doesn't put things in his mouth. I mean anything. His brother was the same way. I have been watching him like a hawk and he is not showing any Autistic signs so far but in this one thing he is exactly like his brother was. I told her he didn't want or like solids so we're going to just keep an eye on him and get him help if he needs it in the future. Sigh. I really don't want all three of my children in therapy. I mean if they need it they need it, i just don't want him to need it.

im sorry love, I am glad you are a strong mom who knows what her children need! So many others live in denial. Your babies are so lucky to have you as their mama. I hope Paxton doesn't need any intervention but if he does he is so lucky to have such an advocate for a mama.

It may not be anything, hun, my son put EVERYTHING in his mouth until he was about a year old and it was nothing. But I can see why you would worry *hugs*

Some don't....but I can understand why you're concerned. What did he/she say exactly? Just keep watching him? He may just be one of the cautious ones. Hope he doesn't cause you too much anxiety

Thanks girls. She said we'll just keep an eye on him in the next few months. Since she sees Doc every week and now Harper too that will be easy to do. If he still isn't down with feeding himself or mouthing objects in a few months we'll start taking it seriously. With two other kids with sensory issues I should have realized it was a possibility. Both of the others have texture problems too. I want to nip it in the bud early.

I can't find an article I was reading last night, but it discussed how some infants do things sooner than others, and how the later ones are more cautious, watching, but instead of continually trying to do something, these more cautious watchers just...do it. Not sure if that makes sense, but maybe he's one of those, and when he gains the pincer grip, he will just pick food up and go from there? It did discuss that. I wish I could find that article! I can't even remember what I was researching to land on it.

I wish you the best of luck. Maybe he won't have those issues.

You picking up and noticing this early might just make the difference in terms of how long it takes to help him if it does become an issue, Missa. I agree with the others you are a wonderful, strong, knowledgeable mama with wonderful intuition when it comes to your children.

That said, I really hope it turns out to be absolutely nothing and he starts showing an interest soon. Xxx.

Missa Harper puts everything in her mouth to chew on but if food touches her tounge she gags and acts like she's choking. I'm hoping it's just that he (and she) are still too young for it. Im glad you're aware and able to have her help keep an eye on things.
