How your child plays, learns, speaks, and acts offers important clues about your child’s development. Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. This free booklet from the CDC offers fun tips on how to aid your baby's development.
For example, you can help your baby's development by:
Looking at pictures with your baby and talking about them.
Laying your baby on his tummy when he is awake and putting toys near him.
Encouraging your baby to lift his head by holding toys at eye level in front of him.
Holding a toy or rattle above your baby’s head and encouraging her to reach for it.
Holding your baby upright with his feet on the floor. Singing and talking to your baby.
