Growth and Development

Caring for your baby means that you keep a tab on its physical, emotional and mental progress. This section on growth and development milestones will help you use scientific knowledge and responsive parenting to learn whether or not your baby is achieving the required developmental milestones.

During the crucial 1 to 12 month after their birth, babies develop physically, mentally and emotionally in a dramatic manner. These are called developmental milestones.  Although all babies don’t develop at the same speed, developmental milestones are helpful in catching any potential problems and taking remedial steps as a part of responsive parenting. You’re doing it right if your baby is developing normally and achieving all the milestones.
