The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a new app to help parents keep track of their baby’s milestones from 2
months to 5 years.

The app is available on the iPhone App store and the Google Play store.

Here are some of the features of the Milestone Tracker app:

Milestone Tracker – track your child’s developmental progress by looking for important milestones using an interactive, illustrated checklist
Milestone Photos and Videos – know what each milestone looks like so that you can better identify them in your own child
Tips and Activities – support your child’s development at every age
When to Act Early – know when it’s time to "act early" and talk with your child’s doctor about developmental concerns
Appointments – keep track of your child’s doctors’ appointments and get reminders about recommended developmental screenings
Milestone Summary – get a summary of your child’s milestones to view, and share with or email to your child’s doctor and other important care
providers
Add a Child – enter personalized information about your child or multiple children

Of course, no app can replace regular well-check visits with the pediatrician, but it can help reassure you if you’re concerned
about where your child is compared with what would be considered "normal" or can help you raise the red flag if you’re noticing
that your child doesn’t do what other children his age is doing.

If your child isn’t following the milestones, there are early interventions that are available before age 3.
