We receive a lot of messages from people asking questions about Noah’s developmental milestones. Questions like, “How do children with Down syndrome develop differently than typical children?” “When did Noah get his first tooth?” When did Noah roll over for the first time?” “When did Noah start drinking from a straw?” and the list goes on and on. We enjoy answering everyone’s questions, but also wanted to create a place on our site that would serve as a landing page of his life achievements.
This list will be updated on a regular basis and will include not only developmental milestones, but what I like to call “life” milestones (like his first visit to a comic shop! The geek in me calls that a major life milestone.)
As you read through Noah’s milestones, please remember that every child is different, and will reach their milestones at different times. I want to encourage you not to use this page as a measuring rod, or a way to compare your child’s growth to another. (Remember to celebrate, not compare.) Our goal is to help encourage and support families, and we invite you to contact us if you have any additional questions.
