Watch for Milestones and Worry Less

Are you a new parent?

If so, your baby is eating, sleeping, and soiling diapers.  Those are all good signs. But is your baby is making developmental progress?  Weeks can pass, but nothing much may seem to change.  Should you be concerned?

Reaching a new milestone is a reassuring event. Doctors pay attention to milestones.

Some milestones, like crawling and walking, are hard to miss. It’s great when your baby reaches them.  

If your baby is less than 4 months old, those ‘big’ milestones may be months away.  Is there something you can watch for now?

Luckily there are many early signs of progress. They are subtle and overlooked milestones.  However, you need to know what to watch for.  Below are examples of milestones from a 3-page handout that I prepared for

Few parents know about such overlooked milestones, which is too bad.  If you know such subtle changes are signs of development, you’ll be reassured.
