As children grow and develop, there are often medical and environmental factors that can commonly become roadblocks to natural development if not detected and addressed. This includes lack of tummy time/container baby syndrome, prolonged sucking and bottle/pacifier use, missed hearing and vision diagnoses, media overuse, overparenting and a faulty sense of typical development, missed or late diagnoses, and nutrition/allergies. In the first of this two-part series, evidence surrounding lack of tummy time/container baby syndrome, prolonged sucking, and missed hearing and vision diagnoses are shared, along with signs and symptoms to watch for. In a problem-solution-based approach, strategies to prevent or support these challenges are shared for each roadblock.
