Normal infant development refers to the expected physical, cognitive, and social changes that occur in your little one during their first year of life. Here are some key milestones of normal infant development:

  1. Physical development
  2. Cognitive development
  3. Language development
  4. Social and emotional development

It's important to note that every child develops at their own pace, so there is some variation in when infants reach these milestones. However, you should talk to your pediatrician if you have concerns about your child's development.

Today we will chat about Equipment that might hinder the normal development above!

1.     A few pieces of equipment that parents and caregivers feel are necessary can delay development and WHY.

2.     What you can and should do instead – actually

3.     How to communicate this and back up your recommendations

4.     What you can do next to continue learning and being the best caregiver with the best skills who provides the best care.
