What is a prenatal consultation?
From that first sweet smile, little coo or giggle to rolling over, crawling and walking – you mark every milestone your baby reaches. But like most parents, you may also worry about whether your baby is developing correctly.
While it's easy for parents to compare their baby to other babies, it's important to know that every baby develops a little bit differently. Some walk, talk, smile or coo sooner or later than others.
So to help you with your expectations or concerns with your baby's development, our doctors have put together some helpful advice. Here you'll find charts from our developmental specialists that you give an idea of average milestones for the first 15 months of your baby's development. We also have a link to the Milestone Tracker App. Developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), this FREE app helps you track your baby's development from birth to 5 years.
These developmental milestones from our pediatric developmental specialists provide you with a quick reference. It's important to note that if your baby was born prematurely, you'll need to adjust the age difference. The information is also available in a checklist format below.
