Baby’s First Year

Developmental milestones

Babies grow and change at an amazing pace. Every month brings new and exciting developments. New parents often wonder what to expect and how to know if their baby’s development is on target. Remember that babies all develop at their own pace and reach various milestones at different times. There is a fairly wide range for when it’s normal for a baby to reach a particular developmental milestone. With that in mind, it’s still important to learn about developmental milestones.
