Dino boy was 7lb.

I wish they'd do some research into asd and reflux babies, I'd read that with some interest.

Our son was 8lb 8oz and 9 days late and our Daughter was 8lb 2oz and 10 days late, both have Aspergers. yes i believe its genetics somehow, because we used to say our son was the reincarnation of my Dad and this was years and years before our son was DX.

Hmmmm, some of my NT children were heavy at birth and fall within the 'risk' levels. RH was in the ordinary range. Probably at risk if there's a 'y' in the day of the week, lol!! xx

Our son was 6lb 6oz and was classed as a small baby yet my daughters were both smaller (6lb 1oz & 6ib 3oz) and not classed as small!! My daughters are in their 20s now and when my eldest was born we were told to lay her on her front when sleeping, 2 years later we were told to lay our youngest daughter on her side and our son who is 30 months old on his back! Who remmber making up a full days worth of baby bottles first thing in the morning? Now they advice not having a made bottle longer than an hour!

We have no autism in either side of our families and we have big families. My wifes father did have a photographic memory and there are many on my wifes side that have an unusual high IQ but I can't imagine it has anything to do with our sons possible autistc traits. I guess we will never know.

It wouldn't suprise me if enviromental factors has a part to play.

D was 10lb 2oz and a few days late, his dad was on time and about 8lb, he's definately on the spectrum


My ex husband was a very prem baby and weighed about 2lb, he's not autistic (I can think of a few things to call him but autistic is not one of them)
