Developmental Milestones


Your baby will make enormous gains in development during the very important first year.

In fact if your baby is like the average baby, he or she will nearly triple in birth weight and grow more or less 250mm in the first year. Your baby will also learn basic language and motor skills that will serve him or her throughout life.
Because your baby is influenced by surroundings, he or she needs a loving, safe and stable environment to develop normally.

To check that your baby is developing on schedule, we recommend clinic visits at 2 to 4 weeks of age and again at 2, 4, 6, 9 and 12 months of age so that we can check physical, social & emotional and intellectual development.

If you have any concerns about your baby’s milestone or want to learn more, contact us and book an appointment at Garsfontein Clinic for a check-up.
