Help Growth and Development history in Pediatric cases

Hi!
I wanted to know if we have to ask about individual milestones (i.e wen did he smile, wen did he sit etc) to the mother or we can just ask has he achieved all his milestones on time??

coz if we have to ask each one individually then we have to know all of them perfectly.....one thing which I am really bad at...

You need to memorize the "major" developmental milestones, here's a short list of what I can remember;
01) Smile
02) Roll over
03) Sit
04) Crawl
05) Say baba dada
06) Cruise
07) Walk
08) Run
09) Undress and dress
10) 2 word sentence
11) Toilet trained
12) Hop and skip

Just make a list of 15-20 important milestones and know them by heart.

Then while taking history of course you don't need to ask each one of them, for example if the infant is six months then you just ask "can he sit without support" if mom says Yes then that's it if she says no then you go to a milestone earlier, like "can he sit with support" or "can he roll over".

Once you are sure the child is OK developmentally then you mention in your patient note that age appropriate milestones have been met (no need to mention the details).

Even pediatricians do not know all the milestones, they just ask about major stuff.
