Did you know the word “toddler” comes from “toddle,” which means to walk unsteadily, much like a child at this age. Makes sense! Here at Westchester Health, we really enjoy watching toddlers reach exciting milestones and helping parents navigate the changes that come with those milestones. But sometimes, things don’t go as expected and a child may have developmental delays. To calm parents’ fears and also offer guidance as to what to look for at this age, we recommend this blog by Lauren Adler, MD, FAAP, a pediatrician with our Westchester Health Pediatrics group (excerpted below).
