We have all heard about the importance of developmental milestones. What are they, and why is there often so much focus on them?

“Milestones act as checkpoints and represent what an average child can do at around a certain age. Of course each child develops at his own pace, but guidelines help us to track development. Milestones also assist therapists and doctors in assessing and picking up any potential developmental delays.” explains physiotherapist and Clamber Club franchisee Lauren Mayer.

So what milestones should your baby be reaching and at what age? Here are the milestones that you can look out for, remembering that each baby is different and develops and his/her own pace.
