Autism isn't usually diagnosed until children are 2 or 3 years old because that's when children start really becoming social. Children with autism don't connect so much socially (depending on how strongly they've got it) so the signs are more obvious. A child this young is going to be really hard to diagnose with autism, as it's mostly shown in the child not being interested in interacting with people. Get advice if you're really worried, but for now it really does sound like regular baby behaviours. Think of it as your child's attention span and memory skills improving. They've puzzled out a new trick and want to be sure that it works every time. That's pretty serious cognitive development going on :D

it will take time to find out, but one thing that I have noticed... ( I have three nephews, 1 neice and a son that is Autistic) They usually have sensory issues such as rocking constantly, they didn't like to have their head to deep into water, they did repetitive behavoir that wasn't usual for a baby their age. There were a few signs. PM me anytime, but it sounds like you have just a nice, happy and healthy baby... Don't fret if their happy. It's when you can't do anything to make them happy that you need to worry...
