When Should my Baby… Milestones 0-12 months

When Should my Baby… Milestones 0-12 months

When should my baby…

As physicians we hear this question all the time!

Parents are always concerned about the developmental milestones of their baby. There is SO much happening in the first year and parents tend to be both nervous and excited about making sure their baby is developing properly, and rightfully so.

We have reviewed early developmental milestones from birth-12 months of age (including gross motor development, fine motor skills, language progression and social skills). It is important for parents to remember that development is not always linear and all babies develop at their own pace, but hopefully this video is a helpful general guide. Additionally, We review some development red flags so parents know when they should discuss concerns with their pediatrician.

When should my baby… Hopefully this video has the answer!

    My baby is only 3 months and he rolled over from Stomach to Back. He puts everything in his mouth. He also laughs too. He’ll be 4 months in 2 weeks!

  5. Al Mujid Ahmad on February 27, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    It would be betterif you did not skip the 0 – 1 month, 3 months, 5months, 7.months and 10 months

  8. Jack Antwon on February 27, 2022 at 11:10 pm

  9. Anthony P on February 27, 2022 at 11:13 pm

  10. Renata Braga on February 27, 2022 at 11:13 pm

  11. Al Mujid Ahmad on February 27, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    You skipped a lot and so we missed a lot.



  12. Pumpkin Pied on February 27, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Mine is 7 months. 5 weeks premature. She doesn’t roll over yet or crawl.



  13. Kelly Vick on February 27, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you!! I started worrying and my husband found this video and made me feel much better about our 7 month old.



  14. Bernadette Teaches Music on February 27, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    WONDERFUL baby
    And beautiful babies 👶🏻❤️



  15. jessica Rodriguez on February 27, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    You dont know for a fact that babies dont social smile before 2 months . Yes they grimace with gas but when a baby younger then 2 months old will hold your gaze and return a smile that’s not gas.



  16. sifan zou on February 27, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Thank you both. This is absolutely helpful not only to young parents but also to USMLE preparations lol. Hope to see more videos.



  17. Omar Ali on February 27, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Please do the video about the baby listening to two languages



  18. Otje Bergen on February 27, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    my nephew started walking at 7 months. He walked right under tables 🤣



  19. Lazar Alina Maria on February 27, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Cute couple. Enjoyed your video.



  20. S. Mohammad on February 27, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    Is it true that bilingual/trilingual babies talk a little later than babies who only learn one? My baby is regularly exposed to 3 languages at a time and I keep wondering if she will be delayed in speaking bc of it 😳



  21. maxmumbai1234 on February 27, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    We need more such informative videos and with great content. Thank you for sharing.



  22. Apple King - Doria on February 27, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    My baby started to roll over around 3.5 months and it was hard to put diaper on her coz she would keep rolling over every time we change her diaper. At 6 months she was trying to stand on her own sometimes 3-6 seconds. She’s 9 months now, she hasn’t cruised, never saw her cruise but she pulls herself up and would stand. And then she tries to put her hands up and down with her body like she’s trying to bounce or something. She’s been saying her sister’s name Arara (Aurora) and her name Awewine (Adeline).



  23. Terry Crews on February 27, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    Seems like a great guy/ dad. Lucky family.



  24. Ashley Reed on February 27, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    I had no idea my son was so advanced until I watched this video 😳 he’s my first so I wasn’t tracking his milestones but he started rolling at 3 months, sitting up at 4 months, and now he’s six months and crawling through the house and pulling up on the furniture letting go trying to stand for two seconds before falling and he says mama 🤯 plus he’s very clingy to me he screams when his dad tries to take him from me or if I leave the room and he cries when strangers trying to hold him at 6 months old



  25. Lynn CH on February 27, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    My eldest daughter started to walk at 13mos, my 2nd girl at 9mos and my 3rd baby boy is now 8mos and just started to stand( given there’s something to hold)



  26. Alana Albarado on February 27, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    I was taught that in a multiple language household each parent should speak only in one language to their baby. If one or both parents speak to their baby in multiple languages, it can cause delay in the baby’s language development. It’s suggested that each parent pick one language they want to teach their baby and speak only in that language. Example: mom is fluent in three languages and dad is fluent in French and English….
    Mom to baby “Hola” (Speaks only in Spanish to baby)
    Dad to baby “Hello” (Speaks only English to baby)
    Then the baby will learn both English and Spanish without any confusion or delay in speech.☺️ And of course as they get older you can always add in other languages for them to learn.

    My baby is basically crawling at 4 months



  28. L J on February 27, 2022 at 11:35 pm

  29. Daniel McConnell on February 27, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    I might like later



  30. Haniya B223 on February 27, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    Is it normal for a baby to not like to be on their tummy? His almost 4 months he hates to be on his tummy, he started to laugh at the beginning of 3 month😂 actually the first time he giggled he was sleeping it was so sweet I hate it that I didn’t film it



  31. misstonietemple on February 27, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    Entertaining and educational



  32. Kay Marie on February 27, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    This video made me very emotional haha your baby is so cute.. 35 weeks today and can’t wait.. I’m nervous but I’m prepared❤️



  33. Daniel McConnell on February 27, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    I’ll only subscribe if I learn more about bones, enough about babies!



  34. Daniel McConnell on February 27, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    I want that bones content



  35. Epic Me on February 27, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    My 9 month old has been standing alone and took a few steps already 😢



  36. ProudMommy: Raya😍 on February 27, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    12:00 my son already does that. He cries the moment he is left alone. He’s been doing that since 2 months lol. 💀😂 my daughter (his twin) could not care any less especially if she is being entertained in some way (tv, music etc). They are 4 months now and pretty much everything mentioned in the video checks out.

    I have a huge dry erase board I use to write down their monthly milestones and I’m happy to learn that they are "on track". I am looking forward to the 6 – 9 month period 😂 I’m ready for the "stranger danger" phase as my daughter is so pleasant that she allows anyone to hold her and smiles 🤪😁



  37. Daniel McConnell on February 27, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    I have commented



  38. Jordan Mercier on February 27, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    My youngest was walking at 7 months and taking his first steps at 6. It was weird though lol, he was so tiny.



  39. Lisa Larsen on February 27, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    My boy rolled over at 10 weeks, but was born 3 weeks early so I guess it’s adjusted to 7 months 😄



  40. G Msd on February 27, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    They smile when they have gas? I thought they would cry lol



  41. Benyameen Yitzhak on February 27, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Speak for yourselves, my baby is just 2 months old and is already drawing up plans to invade China



  42. Will Awtry on February 27, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    Talk slower!



  43. Christalena on February 27, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    My baby was rolling back to tummy both ways by 3 1/2 months but she has a hard time with tummy to back lol



  44. Simmer on February 27, 2022 at 11:53 pm

  45. Daniel McConnell on February 27, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    But I’ve comfronted



  46. Tiny King on February 27, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    I loved this video. Thanks. My anxiety went down a bit bc my son is 13 months & still hasn’t said mama yet. He can walk & do everything else though.



  47. Yeshi Wagaw on February 27, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    Thank you! You are better than some pediatrician. I wish I watched this when I had my first baby. I was so terrified because my baby wasn’t doing based on what their book saying. Thank God! Now no one can catches him when he runs around.



  48. MarQuiz 27 on February 27, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    She’s blabing more than a baby :))



  49. Dustin Luthro on February 27, 2022 at 11:56 pm

    My mom told me I used to just roll around instead of crawl.



  50. Cathy Risigo on February 27, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    I’m an OT in Peddu for 33 years. It’s very frustrating for me that people don’t take more time to focus on the importance of Crawling. Crawling is probably the most crucial milestone a child can do to help them develop and have the most success in future learning in behavior. This is when their tonic neck reflex is get further integrated, they begin to develop near and far point focusing, it helps to develop the artist in their hands to get ready for intricate fine motor skills, helps build core strength and most importantly gets to two sides of the body working in a coordinated fashion as well as strengthens your eye hand coordination had to mention of a bunch of other sensory system benefits… this is a wonderful video but it be nice if you did some thing to emphasize Crawling benefits!
