When can I expect my preemie to reach development milestones?

When can I expect my preemie to reach development milestones?

Quite variable: The number of extra months a preemie needs to reach developmental milestones is quite variable. Most preemies are only mildly delayed, and will reach milestones a bit later than normal, ranging from 1 month later to 6 months later, depending on how premature the baby was, and on what milestone is being looked at. The doctor will let the parent know if part of the development is worrisome. ...Read more

What are language development milestones that disqualify an autism diagnosis?

What are language development milestones that disqualify an autism diagnosis?

"Normal" language: Language is one of 3 domains of impairment for a child to qualify for a diagnosis of autism. Delayed language is an exclusion for asperger's disorder, but normal language (not counting problems with articulation (clarity of speech)) not just in terms of understanding and using words but also in using language to communicate with others age-appropriately would make autism most unlikely. ...Read more

What is head bobbing means.worried about that in my 10 m old otherwise normal healthy baby with development milestones met.ped assured not infantile s?

Though there are : many fairly benign causes of head-bobbing I'd be uncomfortable reassuring any parent without pediatric neurological & ophthalmological evaluations. Spasmus nutans alone, e.g., starts between 4 mos-3 yrs. & often resolves on its own. It's accompanied by nystagmus, rapid eye movements. Gastroesophageal Reflux is another possibility. I'd look into it a bit more. ...Read more

Jerking Episodes: HellCat262243. The jerking described is not typical. Infants, particularly newborns, have a startle reflex, but it passes after several months old. Any type of jerking needs assessment with thorough questioning and I recommend an evaluation by a Neurologist. Video taping the episodes can further assist the Neurologist. For consults, my direct link is healthtap.com/vanessanealmd code PNYTKV. ...Read more

If there are facial characteristics of fetal alc synd in a 6-mo-old but she meets development milestones & growth is good are there concerns?

If there are facial characteristics of fetal alc synd in a 6-mo-old but she meets development milestones & growth is good are there concerns?

Maybe: Obviously you have concerns because of facial features, but these do not have to be from fetal alcohol syndrome.The critical question is whether the infant was indeed exposed to alcohol during development. Any alcohol can be a problem!it is reassuring that milestones and growth are good. Keep close follow-up on these and follow healthy lifestyle choices-good diet once added, no smoking around child. ...Read more

10m old baby boy.development milestones met.still does jerk few times a day for a month now and move head up down while playing.worried if its seizure?

Query spasmus nutans: "Nodding spasms" is a rare condition that includes nystagmus, titubation, and torticollis (head tilt). Although common for infants to jerk once in a while, I consider a parental concern to be an important factor in the evaluation. The condition is benign and will self resolve. However, a complete evaluation by a pediatric neurology will put the matter to rest in order to rule out other conditions. ...Read more
