6 Baby Milestones Your Child Absolutely Must Accomplish Correctly - Even If “Experts” Say It’s Ok To Skip Some Of Them!

Re: Tracking Your Baby's Physical Milestones

Dear New Mom,

How well do you understand baby milestones? Take this short quiz and find out:

Your baby 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 doesn’t try to move his body very much. One day, you notice your baby pushing up into a sitting position.

What do you do? (Pick only one answer)

(a) Brag to your baby’s 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 unique way.

(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 you’re like most parents, you’ll 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, it’s 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?

What You Need To Know About Your Baby’s Physical Development

If you didn’t do too well, don’t despair. Baby milestones are often misunderstood - even by child development experts themselves!

You see, your baby’s 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. These 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 are:
1. Head control
2. Rolling
3. Sitting unaided
4. Crawling
5. Standing
6. Walking

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 gifted!”

This is a dangerous belief!

Your baby needs to learn and master each physical milestone before moving to the next. Each milestone opens up a new world of learning 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...

What’s The Big Deal About Skipping
A Milestone Anyway?

Let’s 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 physical milestones.

No wonder, I’ve 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. Let’s 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 don’t crawl.

But the absence of crawling in some babies has been linked to lower reading skills later in life. It’s 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.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!

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 child’s chances of overcoming them. In fact, studies have shown that it is often possible to get your baby’s 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.

Detailed, Well Organized Info For New Moms

Dear alene,

I came accross your web site as I was searching info on baby sleeping problems. Although I've already a member of many newsletters, websites etc. (such as BabyCenter,, BabyWeekly) I needed to further search some more detailed info and your site was the only one that satisfied.

First of all the topics listed on the left side are well organized...

Secondly in each of them, the information is just to the point.

It is not full of unnecessary advertisements or endless links.

The most important thing I look for within a website is that "I must find the information as soon as possible." It's obvious that mostly "parents" are using these kind of websites and "parents" are the kind of people who have least time though! So it is good that I do not get lost in neverending links and ads.

If my baby has a problem, wouldn’t my pediatrician tell me? be able to tell?

Your pediatrician doesn’t spend as much time with your baby as you do. Of course, if you suspect any problem, you should let your pediatrician know right away. But in every day life, it’s important for you to be equipped and knowledgeable of what’s normal and what isn’t in your child’s development. You’re also in the best position to provide the right stimulation and support to help your baby along and make sure she reaches all her physical milestones.

Why should I help my baby’s progress along? Wouldn’t he reach his milestones if left to his own devices?

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 children’s 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 baby’s body and mind, you could be putting your baby at a disadvantage.
