All children grow and develop at different rates. But, most follow a similar pattern.
It’s important to be aware of this common growth pattern and the key developmental milestones that your child should be reaching as he or she gets older.
Remember that milestones are to be used as a guide only and some children may appear a little ahead or behind schedule at different times in their life. If you’re worried that your child is growing at an unusual rate, the best person to talk to for advice is your doctor.
