Children reach developmental milestones such as language, thinking, and motor skills at their own pace. Minor, temporary delays are usually no cause for alarm, but ongoing delay or multiple delays is called developmental delay.
A foreign body is something that is in the body that does not belong there. Most foreign bodies are harmless but if they are swallowed, they may cause choking or bowel obstruction.
