Developmental milestones for the First year

Aimee's Babies First Year Milestones DVD

The makers of Aimee's Babies Baby Massage DVD have done it again! This new DVD, First Year Milestones shows babies at all the developmental stages from newborn to taking that first step. Each chapter clearly demonstrates what typically developing babies are doing at that age, then provides helpful tips and exercises to help babies reach important developmental milestones.

Chapters include:

  • Introduction
  • Newborn
  • Three-four months
  • Six-nine months
  • Twelve Months

The inspiration behind this DVD was a young mom named Melanie who contacted us after viewing Aimee's Babies Baby Massage DVD and told us that she had no idea her four-month-old baby was delayed until she watched how the four-month-old getting the massage moved and interacted. It was then that she realized that her baby was not moving and responding like a typically developing four-month-old. Melanie later found out that her baby had a form of muscular dystrophy, but her early detection and early intervention is giving her daughter the best start possible!

Aimee's goal is to give all babies everywhere the best start possible! This DVD shows lots of babies at different developmental levels, demonstrating milestones and sensory exercises. It can serve as a guide to baby development for parents everywhere.

As a mom of two kids with developmental problems

by juslilolme

I cannot stress the importance of EARLY intervention!
Yes yes get your baby screened ASAP.
The developmental milestones that you hear about so much are important, but there are other things that doctors don't routinely ask moms (probably for fear of panicking them) but will hint at in the casual conversation they have with you during visits. Seemingly benign questions about how your child plays, or if he's making friends, or does he "flirt" with strangers, are all ways of checking for early signs of developmental problems.
Your statement that "the lights went out in his eyes" is a big flag
