A Baby\’s Gaze May Signal Autism, Study Finds – NYTimes.com.

This is something I noticed early in Rob: he did not gaze into my eyes while nursing like his sister had. And I remember realizing it when, one time while nursing,  he sat up,  looked at me intently in the eyes, put his hand on my cheek; than laid back down and began nursing again. I was shocked, thinking “What was THAT!” because it seemed so strange. That’s when I realized part of what made it strange is that he engaged in very little eye contact otherwise.
