Hi, my concern is my 6 months old baby girl. She has some developmental delays, the main of which is the fact that she doesnt show eye-to-eye contact. Seems not to be interested in people: doesnt normally turn to the voice, doesnt watch people move in the room, etc. However, the girl does react to toys, tracks them quite well, tries to grab them with her hands. Her reaction to toys is way stronger than to people (still not good enough for her age though). She smiles, laughs, but also mainly when she listens to music, us singing, massaging her or when she watches her toys or the light.

We showed the girl to the doctors. They seem to be a bit lost. Its too early for autism. The doctors just suspect something in the brain or genes. we are currently waiting for RMI and genetic test. However, I am very worried and wanted to know if any of you had at least heard of the similar case and what were the details and concequences?

Thanks a lot for the answers,

concerned mother.
