There is nothing better than seeing your little one achieve a new, big first. From their first steps, to their first words, to their first friend.
We can often get caught up in the excitement (and rightfully so) that we forget about all the small cognitive, social and physical developments going on behind these big milestones.
We chatted live with holistic pediatrician (and mum) @drdeblevy to chat about milestones in the early years with little ones, brain connections – and that age-old question of nature vs. nurture.
The most important thing to remember when it comes to milestones is that children develop at their own pace and within a range of what is normal. The endpoint of a child’s development is also variable – whether it’s running, walking, swimming, singing or painting. As humans we are all so different and unique.
