Q&A: 10 Month Old Twins Are Not Developing at Same Pace

Q&A: Can Mild Hearing Loss Contribute to a Learning Delay?

Day2DayParenting Child Development

My son turned a year old a couple weeks ago. He was a few weeks early, but not technically premature. He is not yet clapping, pointing, waving, or playing peek-a-boo.

Q&A: 3 Month Old Baby with Stiff Legs

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Infants 3 - 12 Months

My daughter was born 3 months ago via c-section (she was breech). Since birth, she has been very rigid and stiff.

Q&A: 7 Year Old Started Mispronouncing Words

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Early School Age

My seven year old son has recently started mispronouncing words he used to pronounce correctly. He is very bright (is being tested for the gifted program at school) and was a very early reader.

Q&A: 3 Month Old Not Cooing – Should Hearing be Tested?

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Infants 3 - 12 Months

My daughter is 12 weeks old. She does not really coo. She makes a few noises here and there throughout the day, but doesn’t really respond when I try to get her to make more.

I have a neighbor that has an 8 month old child. The baby can hardly turn over, or hold his bottle. She refuses to put him on his tummy and when I’m around I make him lay that way. She doesn’t like it because he fusses while on his tummy. He can’t push himself up at all. He can barely …
