As a paediatric Doctor and as a Mother, I know many parents wonder about what their child should be able to do and when. Since the pandemic, there have been many changes to healthcare systems in the UK and waiting times are difficult to navigate, particularly when you are worried about something. Β A lot of parents send messages to me worried about what effect the pandemic has had on your baby/toddler, worried that your child isn’t doing what other babies/children are.Raising children is hard work! There's worry about their health and then there is also comparison, which we all do, however unconsciously. For the most part I tell parents not to compare their children to what other babies/toddlers/children are doing except for a few skills which I expect all children to acquire by a certain age. These skills are referred to development milestones and develop as your child grows from birth to 5-6 years.
