<p>Growth and development changes in the first year of life are numerous and dramatic. Though timing may vary from infant to infant, the order in which developmental skills are acquired is consistent. Nurses must be familiar with normal developmental milestones in order to accurately assess a child&rsquo;s development and provide age-appropriate anticipatory guidance to the parents.</p>
<p>Mira is a 6-month-old girl brought to the clinic by her mother for her 6-month check-up. On assessment, you find that Mira&rsquo;s weight is 7 kg, length 65 cm, and head circumference 44 cm. You are the nurse caring for her.</p>
<li>Discuss the assessment of growth and development that you would conduct for baby Mira and the normal findings that you expect, and compare her anthropometry with the normally expected readings as well.</li>
<li>Elaborate on the developmental changes that can be expected of baby Mira over the next few months as she grows from a 6-month-old into a 9-month-old infant.</li>
<li>Provide an explanation to baby Mira&rsquo;s mother on the similarities and differences between the two children as noted by the mother.</li>
<li>Discuss the possible causes or factors of developmental delays in infants and preschool-aged&nbsp;children.</li>
<li>Elaborate on what parents of infants and preschool-aged children who suspect that their children might be experiencing developmental delays must do and the type of tests or investigations that can be done by pediatricians to assess and confirm developmental delays.</li>
