DEVELOPMENTAL SCREENING: Parents, Do You Know the Milestones?

Posted in:DadsDevelopmental ScreeningMomsYour Growing Child


Babies grow at the speed of light. The first 1,000 days of a baby’s life are a period of super-fast changes in their bodies, their brains, and their emotions. Your child will learn, think, problem solve, move, grow, and develop in new ways at every age. These new achievements are called milestones! You can monitor your child’s milestones to make sure they are on track, but what happens if you think something may be off?


It is okay to have a million questions about your child and parenting. Do you know where you can get information, you can trust?
