Questions about the development of your baby?
Watch Dr. Mandi's YouTube Video(s) on Baby Development:
The top 6 milestones for babies up to three months old:
This is how the baby eats, so if they have difficulty latching, you can consult us or a lactation specialist. Also, if you notice your baby favors one breast over the other, this could be a sign of restrictions of movement in their neck. We can help with that.
2. Equal movement of extremities
Make sure the right arm moves as much as the left and the right leg moves as much as the left. Any imbalances could be a sign your baby needs to see a chiropractor.
3. Hands to mouth
This requires hand-eye coordination. This ability should improve over time. If it does not, this is a sign you need to talk to a pediatric specialist. Dr. Mandi can help.
4. Eye Tracking
By the 2nd to 3rd month, baby should be able to follow the movements of you or a toy with their eyes. If they are not able to do this by the 3rd month, make an appointment with us or your pediatrician.
Make sure it is good and strong and gets stronger with time. Again, a weak grip, or lack of improvement of strength over time could be a sign your baby needs chiropractic care.
6. Can hold their head up (No floppy head)
Make sure your baby has enough tummy time to strengthen their neck and back muscles. While in the womb, the baby is curved with a forward "c-curved" spine. As they grow and stretch outside the womb, the spine slowly forms into the more upright favoring "s-curved" spine. Tummy time helps prepare the spine for weight bearing while crawling and walking
