Interactive Milestone Quiz
The first thing I did was the very funny milestone quiz. How much do I really know, or still know, about baby’s development. The results were actually quite surprising. So much I couldn’t remember anymore. With the tip of your finger you drag each milestone to the right column (3, 6, 9 or 12 months). The milestone “recognises mother’s face” is one of the most touching milestones and I had the correct answer, three months. It’s that soon.
Having run workshops for new mothers, NigglyNoo Ltd have found that many parents seem to have unrealistic expectations of what their baby will be able to achieve and when. The interactive Milestone quiz gives parents the opportunity to find out if their expectations of their baby’s development are indeed accurate and realistic.
This app comes with video tips on certain activities and milestones. You need to enable wifi or 3G to watch the videos. There are two videos available “Understanding Milestones” and “Using this App with prem babies”, you can find them in the resources section.
There is one video for every month which gives more info on the milestone and demonstration of activities you can do to help baby develop that skill.
Developmental milestones for every month in your baby’s first year. This section is very useful for new parents. I dragged the slider to 10 months and learned that a 10-month-old baby understands the word “no”. When you click on that specific milestone you will find more tips and advice on how you can develop and train this specific milestone.
