Milestones: Birth to 5 Years Old

The journey of human development is marked by several crucial milestones from birth, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plays a significant role in monitoring and promoting healthy development. In the early stages, the CDC focuses on essential milestones such as a newborn's ability to make eye contact and respond to sounds, which are vital indicators of sensory development. As infants progress, the CDC monitors milestones like rolling over, sitting up, and eventually crawling and walking, all of which signal the development of gross motor skills. Additionally, the CDC pays close attention to language acquisition, as infants begin to babble and later utter their first words. Moreover, social milestones like smiling, responding to their name, and engaging in basic interactions with caregivers are critical for healthy socio-emotional development. By tracking and supporting these milestones, the CDC ensures early identification of developmental delays and enables timely interventions that promote optimal growth and well-being throughout childhood and beyond.
