If you’ve ever had a baby, the chances are you remember when they first smiled at you, first took their first step, when they said their first word and what it was. Maybe they’ve even been recorded in a baby book?
If you’ve just had a baby, it’s natural to look forward to these milestones, and want to know which ones to look out for. Keep in mind that not all babies hit milestones at exactly the same time. Although it’s helpful to have a general guide, you don’t have to worry if your baby isn’t perfectly in line with any milestone chart. If there’s anything to worry about, your local GP will keep track for you during their regular visits.
We’ve put together a baby milestone chart for some of the cutest baby developmental milestones. The ones that might be worth recording with a date, or even a photo or two!
