Growth and development
Babies come in all shapes and sizes; they grow and develop at their own pace. Your baby’s weight, length and head size will be monitored by your health care provider and by a public health nurse at each Child Health Clinic visit as they are important signs of your baby’s overall health and development.
Child development follows a natural course that begins at birth when a child is dependant on their parents for everything to increasing independence as they learn the skills to do things on their own.
As a parent, you play an important role in encouraging your child’s development.
