The term milestones related to a baby is not something very common in India. Milestones are scientifically standardized records of baby development.
I learned about baby milestones when I was casually browsing through some baby topics. I realized, I wasn’t aware of the most important topics regarding baby development stages and the time-line associated with it.
The major milestones are head control, rolling, sitting, crawling , standing and walking. Now the bell rings, yes we have heard our elders asking us if baby has started lying on his tummy, sitting, crawling etc. What is not discussed is when it should be done and how can we help them to reach the milestones in time. The only advise I got was put the baby on floor and shes gone do all of it 😉 hahah.
My baby was late on her tummy, but now with a little help from me and Ram shes reaching all her milestones in time. Im sure any parent would feel low to see his/her little one not able to do things other babies of same age or maybe even younger ones are able to achieve. Also I have noticed many parents complaining that their baby’s weight being a reason for their baby lagging behind others. I dont agree with this, my baby’s weight lies on the 90th percentile, shes definitely heavy and I dont see that being a major problem
I suggest parents to put a little effort and read more on this topic and see how your baby develops better. We spend most of our time with our little one so why not do things and play games, to help them grow better.
