Probably normal. Do you have any other concerns of your own? Any niggles that were there before the nursery worker raised it?

Do any of these ring a bell?

Well personally I wouldn't worry. But if you do have any concerns later, look up CHAT or MCHAT and if that brings up red flags go to your GP for a referral to a developmental paediatrician to rule out anything that is concerning you.

I would touch base with the health visitor and get her to note concerns and if required make referral. The signs of high functioning Asd become more noticeable about this age and on going.
My dd2 started the whole referral and speech stuff at two years and started a SN school at nearly 3 and the early work has made a huge difference

Elizabeth - what about all the other milestones - sitting up, crawling? How's the walking coming on?

My dd2 eye contact was terrible when younger but loads better now but only with people she knows well.
