Video: Baby development: expectations and pressures

0-1 years

In this short video, parents share stories about dealing with development pressures on babies. Parents talk about having appropriate expectations about baby development milestones and time frames. Although it’s tempting to compare your child with others, keep in mind that no two children develop in the same way. Try not to let expectations become a burden on you or your child.
