The questions/scenarios I presented are for you to explore with your husband, so that you will approach this situation with love and sensitivity. You are dealing with a newly-married couple, with a new child. You do not want to add to their stress.

I hope that you will get some answers through this loving approach, but, either way, you can take comfort in knowing that you have addressed the issue, openly and calmly. If it turns out that something more serious is going on, please help your son seek professional help as soon as possible. Hatzlocha!
