Baby Milestones

Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Children reach milestones in how they play, speak, behave, and move!

Remember these are milestones are listed under the FIRST month in which your child MAY achieve them. Babies develop at different rates! Try to avoid comparing your baby to other babies! Always consult with your health care provider if you are worried.
