This growth and development chart is a gift to new parents. It provides benchmark guidelines...but leaves room for flexibility as each child develops at their own pace. New mothers have enjoyed having the easy reference, rather than having to read volumes of information. I highly recommend its use for new parents and pediatrician practitioner offices.

This simple chart provides a grid for comparing the child to what is expected at various ages. Developmental delays are best managed when they are identified early and this chart can help a parent identify areas of concern if the skills are not met when they should be… New parents can use all the help and guidance they can muster and this (chart) fits the bill.

Every parent and caregiver should have a copy of …“Look At Me! Birth to Three!”…With concise bullet-point text in boxes, it is a very simple way to understand a child’s physical and social/emotional journey and to anticipate the next stages of growth. Equally important are the suggested interactive activities that parents and caregivers can do with their children at different stages of their development. Sherry Rufini, Founder and former Director of
Welcome Home Baby, a program of Aspiranet
When (parents) have unrealistic expectations of their child’s growth and development, they become more frustrated, confused, and less confident as a parent. Much of the feedback we receive from parents include comments about how much they appreciate receiving the (Birth to Three) developmental chart.
