1. Great list!

    I know so often I worry about what my 17 month old is doing or not doing. I often compare him to other children too. The point is, there’s a wide range of normal and he WILL get there!

      Yes you are def right! I’ve realized all kids are different…my son walked early but has trouble talking and with my daughter it is vice verse

  2. I am always checking milestone lists with my two children, especially my youngest because he was born at 33 weeks. Because of lists like yours, I have been able to determine he is just a couple months shy of reaching milestones on time, which was to be expected, and we are all fine with that.

      Mine would meet some and took longer on others.. But it was a good way for me to know what to work on… My son still isn’t communicating well

  3. I’ve always loved celebrating milestones! Of course, it’s a little different now with an adult and 2 pre-teens 😉 Still, I do have high expectations of the kids and don’t let them get away with less than they’re capable of, which sometimes means they make attempts at things that are too hard. At that point, we dial it back down but at least we’ve tried!

  4. I have always been one of those parents who worry about their child being on the right track. Lists like this are really helpful. My oldest was always ahead of the game but my youngest has so far always been right where she should be. All kids are different I guess. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Under 18-24 months it states, “Responds to ‘No’ at times”. I had to chuckle because we all know terrible twos start well before 24 months 🙂 On a more serious note, thank you so much for making the PDF. It was very thorough and informative. It brought me back through the stages and pulled up some great memories.

  6. Thanks for sharing this list! To be honest these lists scare me a little. We had to go over a list similar to this with my son’s doctor and I get so nervous every time. At least this list helps me practice these things with my son in advance.

  7. With my oldest, I was like you and had no clue what milestones he should be hitting and at what time. This list would have been awesome. My twins went to developmental clinics, so that helped. However, this list would have been great to prepare for the visits too. Great info for a new mom.

      Yes… I loved the lists for the fact I knew what to help my kids with.. I didn’t want to stress out about it 🙂

  8. These are amazing! You did a great job making this list and putting it all together. You’re right there is no manual. We just kinda follow their lead.

      exactly… my two babies reached milestones so differently…I just liked to know what I could work on with them

  9. What a great list you’ve put together! I do think it’s important to remember that all children develop differently though. For example, my son was rolling over at 4 days old, yes days, and practically running by 9 months. But he didn’t have a 20-50 word vocabulary until he was over 2 years old. But charts such as these are so helpful to gauge if there might be a problem down the road, as long as parents don’t stress too much about it. 🙂 That’s my philosophy anyway, for what it’s worth, lol.

      yes! I agree 100% 🙂 My son was the same… walked at 9 and is still having trouble with communication. My girl is the opposite…I take the list as ideas on what I can work on with my kids.. but def don’t want to stress on anything else
