What Developmental Milestones Should I Expect to See During Baby’s First Year

Milestones are guidelines that doctors and health care providers use to determine if your child has a developmental delay or has a potential disability.  Remember that all babies develop and grow at different rates.  Many parents are guilty of comparing their child to another child that is around the same age and they begin thinking that their child is behind or isn’t doing things that the other baby is doing.  Learn what milestones are important and that your baby should be doing by the end of the of their 4 months, 8 months, and 12 months old.  Don’t be concerned if your child isn’t doing one milestone in their appropriate age group.  However, if your child isn’t doing most of these milestones by the end of the appropriate month.  Then you should scheduled an appointment with your child’s doctor or health care provider as soon as possible to discuss your concerns.  Your child’s doctor will evaluate your child and determine if your child should been seen by a specialist or be referred to Early Intervention Services.
