The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a new Milestone Tracker app. You can track your child’s developmental milestones from two months to five years. From birth to age 5, children typically reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move. Photos and videos in this app illustrate each milestone and make tracking them for your child easy and fun!  Milestone Tracker is free, easy to use, and includes features like:

  • Milestone Tracker – track your child’s developmental progress by looking for important milestones using an interactive, illustrated checklist
  • Milestone Photos and Videos – know what each milestone looks like so that you can better identify them in your own child
  • Tips and Activities – support your child’s development at every age
  • When to Act Early – know when it’s time to talk with your child’s doctor about developmental concerns
  • Appointments – keep track of your child’s doctors’ appointments and get reminders about recommended developmental screenings
  • Milestone Summary – get a summary of your child’s milestones to view, and share with or email to your child’s doctor and other important care providers

Milestone Tracker is available on Google Play  and the Apple App Store. For questions or more information, contact
