In brief: Each developmental
domain has a range of ages at which typically-developing infants & toddlers reach expected milestones.
Screening for these is on firstsigns.org. Not attaining a milestone by the age at which 90% of children do so is a delay. The trajectory of development over time is more important than reaching a milestone at a single point in time. Developmental surveillance is, therefore,recommended by the AAP.

As the child is growing up, developmental milestone is being observed and associated with other sx before DX of delay is made.
Your peds will allert you if there's a problem.

In brief: Obvious
It simply means that an infant is not meeting developmental landmarks, e.
g. Sitting up, crawling, walking, speech etc.
