at 10 months a child should be assessed for developmental milestones (see the pediatric websites on this thread, many have pediatric milestones listed on them:, erickson's stages, and they should have gotten updated on their immunizations. a systems review as well as a pe should have been done. no bumps or bruises--at all? all height and weight parameters met? breastfeeding? because there are 3 breastfeeding diagnoses. what solid foods is he progessing to eating? there is always the "readiness for" diagnoses.
