Ensure your child is healthy at every age
During their early years, children experience a lot of important development for their health. Through age 18, children should regularly see the doctor to make sure they’re growing up healthy and on track—even if they’re feeling well. These are called ‘well-child visits.’ These visits allow your child’s doctor to keep an eye out for key developmental milestones and get important routine vaccines.
Well-child visits are essential during the first 30 months of life
Babies need extra attention early in life. Newborns should have at least six well-child visits with their doctor during their first 15 months.
Your baby should then have at least two more well-child visits with their doctor before they turn 30 months old.
