Child development milestone is very important and knowing the phases of your child's development is important. Anytime there is a delay in activities such as the transfer of objects from one hand to the other at 6 months of age, for instance, there is a need for further evaluation by you and this information should be presented to your child's pediatrician. If other delays occur in child development milestone such as not crawling by 9 to 10 months, something may be going on that with early intervention can become less severe in your child's life.
