Doctors use certain milestones to tell if a toddler is developing as expected. There's a wide range of what's considered normal, so some children gain skills earlier or later than others.
Toddlers who were born prematurely reach milestones later. Always talk with your doctor about your child's progress.

You know your toddler best. So share your concerns — even little ones — with your child's doctor.
If your toddler is not meeting one or more milestones or you notice that your child had skills but has lost them, tell the doctor.
