What is a development assessment? An assessment is a structured evaluation of your child's development—physical, language, intellectual, social, and emotional—by a developmental assessment specialist, or a team of professionals that can include a pediatrician, language specialist, audiologist, occupational therapist, child psychologist, and a physical therapist, among others. During your baby's reviews your health visitor will discuss your baby's health and development, and ask if you have any concerns. If your baby is gaining weight and you and your health visitor have no concerns, they should be weighed no more than: once a month up to 6 months of age; once every 2 months from 6 to 12 months of age.

Developmental milestones are physical or behavioral signs of development of infants and children. Rolling over, crawling, walking and talking are considered developmental milestones and provide important information regarding your child's early development. .   Examining babies' hips is difficult. The baby needs to be out of its nappy and relaxed, not crying. Ideally, babies should be examined within 24 hours of birth, at the six-week check, between months of age and again at walking age. This is because a normal examination at a younger age doesn't mean that DDH won't be present later.

At 6 months, infants sleep about 12 to 16 hours per day, including two or three daytime naps. Most babies sleep for a stretch of at least 6 hours at night. Developing. By 6 months, it's common for many babies to: look up when their name is called; say "ba," "da," and "ga" and start to babble ("babababa"). The 6 month immunisations are given now. At 12 months. Routine 12 month vaccinations are given, and this is another opportunity to discuss your child’s growth and development, as well as any other child health or parenting issues. After the first year. Child health checks occur at 18 months, 2 years, 3 years and 4 years of age.
