My DS has been crossing his fingers(like someone wishing good luck) for the past month or so..This never bothered me until DH pointed it out and I made the silly mistake of googling it...and it keeps mentioning Austism/ASD.. DS says about 10 words, v babbly/smily/social etc, walked at 10 mths, good eye contact etc but my brother has Aspergers/severe mental health issues, so guess this has scared me a bit!
Anyone's NT DC cross fingers at this age and did it stop in time please?

My 25 month old did this for a while a few months ago, he seems to have stopped now.

I've worked with a couple your DS' age that have done the same, and both neurologically typical. If there aren't any other symptoms, I wouldn't worry.

Thanks to you both for your reassurance, hoping it's just one of those many quirky little things toddlers do!
