"Where do I turn for questions about my child's development?"
While growth charts track weight and height, measuring other developmental milestones is not as clear. When a baby has trouble learning to hold a bottle, or a toddler doesn't seem to say as many words as others, parents may wonder if their child is a late bloomer or if it's something more serious. When questions arise, turn to Integrated Pediatric Interventions (IPI).
