Building Blocks: Milestones at 5 Months Old

In this video, Dr. Preeti Parikh explains what you can expect from your child at five months old. At this stage your baby is starting to interact with their environment and will learn the concept of ‘cause and effect’. At this stage if your baby doesn’t roll over, smile spontaneously, or can’t be soothed at night, this may be a sign of developmental delays and you should consult with your doctor.
