Developmental milestones for babies have many names…

Developmental milestones for babies are many, and there is no standardized list.  I chose Kidtogeny’s milestone names so they would be parent-friendly, telegraphic, and descriptive.  However, they many not always match other names you’ll encounter.

If you want to check a milestone name on Kidtogeny’s Catalog list, scan Kidtogeny’s alphabetic listing of names below.  When you find a promising name, click on it to see its illustration and written description.

You need a free Subscriber membership to see the milestone’s illustration and a Catalog membership to see the illustration and the written description.
