If you sit around at the park long enough, you're bound to hear a mother bragging about her child speeding past the milestone markers earlier than expected or a distressed mama who is worried that her son isn't on the same page as his peers. Developmental calendars are posted in the pediatrician's office and at each well checkup of his first year of life, doctors ask the standard questions to see how baby is chugging along in comparison with others of the same age. While most every mum is bound to worry at some time or another, each child is different and will grow into his own at his own pace. So tell mommy, where did your child fall on the milestone markers?
