Physical Developmental Delays: What to look for

Choose an activity

I’m worried that my child isn’t growing the way he should. Should I bring it up with my child’s pediatrician?

Yes. Always share any worries you have with your child’s pediatrician. If you feel like your worries aren’t being taken seriously, don’t be afraid to bring it up again or ask the pediatrician to take another look. Many signs of developmental delays aren’t obvious. Trust your gut.
