Milestones are skills we expect children to meet by certain ages.
Developmental milestones include skills such as smiling for the first time, waving "bye bye", and pointing. They are markers set forth by early-childhood experts as a tool to measure a child’s growth.
Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (crawling, walking, pointing, etc.). How your child plays, learns, speaks, and acts offers important clues about their early development.
