Ages of Learned Milestones

LilSugar Readers Chime In on Deadlines For Learned Milestones

You don't see many kindergartners wearing diapers or popping a bottle in their lunch bag! Some milestones like rolling, talking, and walking just sort of happen and others like giving up a lovey, forgoing a pacifier, and moving from crib to bed are more learned. Many parents help their offspring progress by limiting the time their tot is wheeled around in a stroller or eats in a high chair. We asked for your opinions and LilSugar readers chimed in. Here are the results!

Do you agree with these deadlines for learned milestones?

I think it's good to have these guidelines, just to know if what you're kid is doing is way out of the ordinary but I agree that kids have their own pace and you should let them mostly lead the way.

I agree with LadyLila. These "deadlines" are really generic. They're what's "expected." I see nothing wrong with nursing past one, co-sleeping if that's what works for your family, or taking your time being potty trained! So far I've noticed that my daughter thrives the best if I don't push her on things like this and she decides on her own.

The thing is that kids learn and do at their own pace...it all depends on their personality. My daughter is almost 4 and has only been fully potty trained for a month. She resisted at first and we were encouraging but not pushy. I would never make my daughter get rid of her lovey though. That's just mean! Ever since I was little, I have to sleep with the blanket over my head. Taking her blankie would be like telling me I can't do that.
