Baby Milestones Your Child Absolutely Must Accomplish Correctly - Even
If Experts Say Its Ok To Skip Some Of Them!
Re: Tracking Your Baby's Physical
Dear New Mom,
How well do you
understand baby milestones? Take this short quiz and
is five months old. According to your baby books, he should
be rolling over by now. Your baby is not the active type. He seems to
enjoy watching the world around him, but doesnt try to move his body
very much. One day, you notice your baby pushing up into a sitting
What do you do? (Pick only one answer)
(a) Brag to your babys grandparents, your closest friends and anyone
who will listen that your baby is a genius because he skipped rolling
over and is now sitting up.
(b) Nothing. Each baby is different and develops in his or her own
(c) Schedule a visit to the pediatrician. Your baby is trying to sit up
without rolling over first and therefore, something might be wrong.
If youre like most parents, youll probably
answer (a) - you would
brag and feel proud because you take it as a sign that your baby is
progressing faster than average. By skipping baby milestones, your
baby must be ahead of his peers. If you answered (a), give yourself 0
points. This is a common
myth, as you'll find out below.
If your answer was (b), give yourself 0
points. Yes, its true that each
baby has his or her own development speed. However, the development
track is the same for every baby. Some babies are slightly faster or
slower than others, but it is not normal or acceptable for a baby to
have her own track. All
children go through the same developmental
stages and in the exact same order - your baby included.
If you answered (c), give yourself 10 points.
Congratulations, this is the correct
answer! Read on to find out why.
So... how did you do on our baby milestones quiz?
To Know About Your Babys Physical Development
If you didnt do
too well, dont despair. Baby
milestones are often misunderstood - even
by child development experts themselves!
You see, your babys physical milestones are crucial signs that show
whether your baby is developing normally - or whether your baby is
having delays, delays which can affect her entire life.
Not many so-called child experts will tell you this: Your baby must go
through six key physical milestones in his first year of life.
six milestones are like SCAFFOLDING, each building on the previous one.
They give your child the foundation he needs for optimal learning and
growth - for the rest of his life.
The six key physical milestones
1. Head control
3. Sitting unaided
Many parents can get quite
alarmed when their baby is late in reaching
any of these milestones. They compare their baby to the next and stress
out that their child is a slow learner.
But if their child skips one milestone and moves on to the next, many
parents have the opposite reaction: they feel proud that their child has
bypassed some skills and simply rushes to the next. My
baby walked without learning how to crawl. Surely, my child must be
This is a dangerous
Your baby needs to
learn and master each physical milestone before
moving to the next. Each milestone opens up a new world
experiences for your baby. If your baby skips a milestone, or does not
master it, then your baby will miss crucial learning experiences as
well. And something will go wrong later on...
Whats The Big Deal About
A Milestone Anyway?
Lets look at our quiz as an
example. When your baby learns to roll over, a whole new world opens up
to her. Suddenly, she can change her position and get a different view.
She gets more visual stimulation. This creates more connections in her brain
as she learns more about the world around her.
By rolling over, you baby can find more interesting things by herself,
without waiting for somebody else to move her. Thus, her increasing
control over her environment gives her more confidence and
encourages her to explore even more.
By rolling over, your baby makes
her upper body and hip muscles stronger. These pave the
way for her to eventually learn how to sit up and move onto her next
No wonder, Ive found that babies who have problems learning how to
roll over eventually have problems with balance, stability,
coordination and even writing later in life!
You should also look at developmental delays or absences seriously,
because they can be a
sign of more serious problems. Lets take for instance,
the child who skips crawling and goes straight to walking. Some experts
will tell you this is perfectly normal, that some kids just dont
But the absence of crawling in some babies has been linked to lower
reading skills later in life. Its not that the absence of crawling
causes babies to be poor readers.
Rather, the absence of
crawling is caused by the same problem that leads to poor reading
- something called Tonic Labyrinthine Reflex. The child with TLR will
also have problems in math and other physical problems. So the sooner
you recognize this problem in your child, the sooner you can do
something about it.
Dont Wait Until Its Too
As an occupational therapist
for 24 years, I see hundreds of children every year who need help to
develop basic skills. By the time I see them, they have shown
unmistakable signs of developmental problems... signs too obvious for
any child care expert to miss.
This means the problems have been going on for some time, and we must now work much harder
to help the child overcome them.
With babies, the earlier
you can spot a problem, the better your childs chances of overcoming
them. In fact, studies have shown that it is often
possible to get your babys development back on track through remedial
actions that can be done at home by parents and other caregivers.
I wish I could tell you and every other parent that there are less
obvious signs you can watch out for...
... that you can do a
lot of easy things while your babies are young to make sure your babies
are growing properly, and to avoid potential problems, or even head
them off before they become big ones.
I want to let you know how easy and enjoyable it is to encourage your
babies natural physical growth, before minor problems become bigger
ones that need professional help.

Unfortunately not always. Without
a supportive environment, a baby will not grow to his full potential. Some
of the things we take for granted can impede our babies development -
such as putting our babies to sleep on their backs. In recent years,
parents have been told to always put their babies down on their backs
to sleep, to reduce the likelihood of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
While this is sound advice that certainly helps save childrens lives,
the result has been that many babies no longer have enough opportunity
to strengthen their necks and backs enough to progress smoothly through
their physical milestones.
So unless you know how to provide the nurturing environment for your
babys body and mind, you could be putting your baby at a disadvantage.
