Behaviors of children are their feelings, masked in the form of a fit. They are curious and want answers to everything. We do think every child is the same, but that’s not true. Every child is budding differently, still, there are certain typical milestones that babies achieve, and if yours is 15 months now, let’s see some of the forts it must have under its reign.

Some Common 15 month old milestones

The trip to the pediatrician is fairly easy; all he’ll do is ask about the milestones your 15 month old child is hitting to assess their development. There are a lot of ordinary in this age.

At this point, 15 month mark, one of the milestones is the appearance of the first molars. This process is painful for some kids and not for others. Sometimes, the pearly whites pop on.
