When should I be concerned if my baby is not reaching developmental milestones? This is a question so many parents ask. But, you must remember that all babies develop at different rates. Some may be babbling early and chattering at every opportunity. Another may show no interest in crawling while all his fellow babies are dashing about on all fours. Neither is right or wrong – they are just different.
However, if you have any concerns, go along to your doctor or health visitor – especially if you have worries that your baby might have sight or hearing problems. And, if your baby was doing something well, such as rolling over, and then seems to lose that ability and does it no more, do go to the doctor.
Remember, ToucanLearn has plenty of activities to track the developmental milestones and gives you lots of ideas of how to encourage your baby to achieve them. The key is not to compare your little one with other babies too much and help their healthy development by providing a happy, safe and stimulating environment for your baby.
