The toddler milestone 48 months is another big step in early child development. Their toddler language development will be very advanced and they will be able to make themselves understood to most people.

They are now very independant and will be feeding themselves and getting dressed and undressed themselves. They enjoy spending lots of time with adults who make time for them and encourage them.
