Day 278, Development of your little one

Development of your little one

As parents the well being and overall growth and development of our child is the most important factor in our lives. We discuss what’s right and wrong in the experiences they face with their the doctors, surf the internet for guidance on various topics, refer books,  and discuss various child related topics with peers, family and friends. We want to make sure we understand what they are going through and want to always give them the best.

Here is a brief to help you understand your little one’s developmental milestones. What is important to note that the milestones happen in order.  At times a child may skip one and move on to the next one which is just fine. The age mentioned is as per the Expected due date of your child and not the birth day.

0-3 months
