Preventative check-ups can be done at birth, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months, 2 years, then yearly after that. These visits give us an opportunity to do a physical exam, detect any problems early on and monitor growth and development. Assessments will be done to ensure that your child is meeting developmental milestones, and measurements are taken to make sure their height, weight and head circumference are growing appropriately over time.
Well-child visits also offer us a chance to answer any questions you (the parent) may have, and check-in about diet and nutrition, exercise, mood, digestive health and immune system function.
