Developmental Milestones

Typical development is AMAZING. Children learn new skills quickly. Check below for some general guidelines of things to be expecting your little one to be learning, depending on how old they are. Remember, eating is the most complex physical task that children do – it takes the typically developing child 2 full years to learn to eat a wide range of foods. However, if your child is struggling to meet these milestones, it is worth talking with your child’s pediatrician or other health professional. Because eating is so complex, it is often the first sign that something isn’t working well for a child from a developmental standpoint. The earlier you get help, the easier it is to get back on the developmental path.

Please note: If your child was born prematurely, you will want to use their “adjusted” age (how old they would be if they were born on their due date), not their “calendar” age (how old they actually are). From a developmental milestone standpoint, we adjust for prematurity until the child is 2 years old.
