Here you find questions and answers regarding baby development.
If you read just about any book about a baby's first year, you'll find all relevant development milestones that they are expected to pass and when. While this is good, since comparing with average may help you spot a problem early on, it is also very important to realize that reaching milestones is not a competition and most delays or different paths are not a problem at all.
Your baby might be slow with sitting up, but early with communicating. If you go to regular health check-ups with your baby and the nurse or pediatrician is not worried, then most likely you can relax too. But of course, sometimes something isn't completely right and a baby may need extra support.
