Infant physical, language, and cognitive developmental milestones are as follows:
Physical – 8 weeks – Smiling is a baby’s first social skill – he’s picking up on how relationships work, as well as a signal of emotional growth.
3 to 4 months – Grabbing - babies start to gauge where things are in space and they can plan an action, such as grabbing a pacifier.
Language - At about 2 months, babies begin to make vowel-like noises, called cooing because of their pleasant “oo” quality.
Around 6 months babbling appears, in which infants repeat consonant – vowel combinations, often in long strings such as “bababababa” and “nanananana”.
Cognitive – A newborn baby should be able to track you with their eyes and react to loud noise.
Your baby will prefer your face to the faces of other people.
An atypical development during this period could be caused by premature birth. Pertain to milestones parents should begin counting from the child’s due date, not from his birth date.
A developmental delay is two months or more from the norm. For example, an infant is 17 months old and not walking, or he’s 7 months and hasn’t smiled yet Milestone.
One strategy a family can use to influence their child’s learning would be to read to their child daily.
