A doctor told me a toddler carrying 1 toy is normal but taking 5 or 6 toys when we leave the house is a sign of autism. But he carry them all day, he put them down for a movie, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, his slide, swing, laying on a blanket outside, garnening with me, or puzzles. Many other things can get his attention.
He has started in the last month taking about 3 toys into bed with him every night.
He's learning to share his toys with cousin and he will allow anyone to touch his toys as long as he asks us for help or we state we are offering help because 5 to 6 toys is cumbersome for him to carry into the car.View Thread
