Baby Milestone

Milestones matter! How your baby plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves offers important clues about his or her development. These are many baby milestones that happen in the first year of life. Every baby develops at their own pace, so it is important to be patient and supportive. With love and encouragement, your baby will reach all of their milestones.
