What Should You Know?
It’s time to change how we view a child’s growth.
Do you know all the ways you should measure your child’s growth? We naturally think of height and weight, but from birth to 5 years, your child should reach milestones in how he plays, learns, speaks and acts. Track your child’s development and act early if you have a concern. Learn more about milestones. For additional information, visit:
