My 3-month-old cries every time someone outside of our immediate family wants to hold her, or when someone new comes over. Is this normal?
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.
By browsing the questions and answers below, you'll find out what's normal and not as well as get many tips on how to help stimulating your baby's development. You can also check out our baby development month by month guide here.
