Newborn & Infant – Check Up Schedule
A child should have regularly scheduled checkups, often called well-child visits, beginning shortly after birth. During these visits, we examine your child and ask you questions about your child's development. Immunizations are either given or scheduled at this time.
Well-child visits usually are scheduled for your child at the following ages:
After age 2, well-child visits are scheduled yearly until at least age 6. These appointments allow your health professional to keep a close eye on your child's general health and development. Identifying potential problems early gives your child the best chance for proper and successful treatment. In addition, any concerns you have about your child can be discussed during your visit.
