At 3 months old, it can be challenging to definitively diagnose autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in babies. However, there are some early signs that parents and caregivers can look for

Babies typically start making eye contact around this age. Limited or inconsistent eye contact could be a sign to watch..

Limited Eye Contact 

Babies often start smiling in response to others' smiles around 6-8 weeks. If a baby isn't showing social smiles or only does so rarely, it might be a sign to discuss with a pediatrician.

Limited Social Smiling

While it's still early for full-blown babbling, babies should be making cooing sounds and other vocalizations by this age. Limited or absent vocalizations might be worth mentioning to a pediatrician.

Limited Vocalization

If a baby shows little interest in faces or avoids them, it could be a concern.

Lack of Interest in Faces

Babies at 3 months old should be responding to sights, sounds, and other stimuli in their environment. If a baby seems unusually unresponsive or indifferent to stimuli, it's something to take note of.
