Providing your child with proper check-ups to ensure total wellness
Well-child care is so important. Taking your child to the doctor when he or she is feeling under the weather is simply not enough. The AAP recognized the need for a schedule of visits (see below) to the pediatrician because when you know a visit is approaching, you can prepare for topics of discussion. Starting the dialogue can lead to a healthier life for your child, and that is the ultimate goal. The following services are provided during the routine baby check-up.
- Height, weight, and head growth measurements
- Newborn screening (at the 2 week check-up)
- Routine vaccinations
- Complete physical exam
- Developmental screening
- Nutrition assessment and dietary guidance
- Anticipatory guidance
- Screening blood work is done at 12 months and 2 years of age
