It’s easy to ensure the continued health of your child with regular checkups at the Well Baby Clinic. At each appointment, your doctor will perform a complete physical exam, which includes measuring your baby’s height, weight, and head circumference; and assessing your baby’s general health and development. You can also get all your child’s immunizations with us and enjoy advice on feeding, weaning, teething, toilet training, behavioral problems, general safety and traveling.
Newborns are scheduled for checkups anywhere from 2 to 4 days after birth to 2 weeks, at 6- 8 weeks, 4, 6, and 9 months of age during the first year. Then, toddlers generally go for check-ups every three months (in other words, at 12, 15, and 18 months). After this, check-ups are usually scheduled once a year.
Time to talk
These appointments also offer the perfect opportunity for you to come and talk about all aspects of your baby’s care.
