Autism is a mental disorder, not a physical one
Her not wanting a bottle isn't autism
All of the stuff that is wrong with her is just what happens with babies sometimes, not even just premies
It's most likely due to her health issues.
I am going to venture out on a limb here and say no not autism but rather the health issues the baby was born with.
Autism is something that occurs within the brain, mentally. What you're describing are physical things. Her not wanting a bottle is normal, she's used to the tube that she was taught with. Happens to tons of babies. Sounds like normal things, IMO.
I'm going to say it's more to do with her health issues, than being autistic or even a preemie. My boys were born at 33 weeks, perfectly healthy, no NICU time; But since she had other health problems at birth (that could happen to full term infants) it's probably because of that.
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" Autism is a mental disorder, not a physical one Her not wanting a bottle isn't autism All of the stuff that is wrong with her is just what happens with babies sometimes, not even just premies"
I know that... I was wondering if it is a precursor. I know what autism is, I have taken abnormal psych classes. I just don't know warming signs and someone mentioned it so I was curious.
I should have specified more, sorry.
