Baby and Toddler Development/ Milestones

I am worried my 2-month-old isn’t meeting their milestones: Advice?

Hi. My baby will be 2 months old tomorrow and he goes for his appointment and shots Thursday which made me look up to see what milestones he should be meeting. He smiles and coos but doesn’t follow things with his eyes and doesn’t turn his head to sounds. I’m freaking out that something may be wrong. Any other moms experience this and baby ok?

Should I be concerned with how little my 2-year-old is talking?

My daughter says about 15 words including mama and daddy, and 3 sentences. I’m just curious if she could have a speech delay? She used a TON of gibberish, she can go on and on…She can’t communicate her needs to us and still just cries and screams. She listens to commands and seems to understand us when we talk, but isn’t using her words. She is 2 years old and 4 months.

My mother in law said my child is “slower” than most because he is breastfed: Thoughts?

Has anyone ever been told your baby I “slower” because he/she is breastfed? I exclusively breast-feed mainly from the breast because I am a stay at home mom and just haven’t had the need to actually pump he is always with me. Anyways my mother-in-law said that he is “slow” because he couldn’t hold a bottle or toy. Which he can do both he only spent 2 hours with her today (I pumped a bottle for him) I only left him so she could spend time with him. I was just curious if anyone else has anything like that before. Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

What age did your children start rolling over and teething?

Ten Months After Baby Boy Was Born Without Skin, Mom Is Finally Allowed to Kiss Him

A baby boy born without skin is continuing to thrive after his parents fought for his right to live. When Priscilla Maldonado and Marvin Gray first learned they were expecting their third child together, they took comfort in knowing all of his tests came back normal. However, at 37-weeks gestation, a routine scan revealed that their baby boy had stopped gaining weight and his heart rate had begun to slow.

Their baby boy, Ja’bari, was born weighing just three pounds on January 1. His skin had only formed on his head, face, and parts of his legs and arms, feet, and hands were fused together and his eyes were fused shut. In an interview with the San Antonio Express-News, Maldanado recalled Ja’bari’s birth being “completely silent” and unlike anything she experienced while giving birth to her two older children. Not sure if Ja’bari would survive or ever recover, doctors told Maldanado and Gray that they should consider “pulling the plug,” something the parents could never even consider doing. In an interview with ABC …

World’s Smallest Baby Released From Hospital After Six Months

Baby Saybie earned the title of world’s smallest surviving baby when she was born in December of 2018. At the time of birth, she weighed only 8.6 ounces and was small enough to fit in the palm of her doctor’s hand. For comparison, that’s about the same weight as a large apple or a juice box. Can you imagine? According to the University of Iowa’s Tiniest Babies Registry (who knew that was a thing?!), the little miracle weighed 7 grams less than the previous tiniest baby record holder, a baby girl born in 2015 in Germany.
