My son is 2 years old, he rocks himself to sleep sometimes,

Resolved Question:

My son is 2 years old, he rocks himself to sleep sometimes, and flaps hands when excited. He used to babble talk, but stopped altogether, although he did say ma ma last week. He was born 10 weeks premature along with his twin sister. Is this a sign of autism?

This could be an ASD disorder but he could be developing normally.
If it is autism, it seems very mild
