Well-Baby and Well-Child Checks

Also known as: Child Health Care

An important part of parenting includes understanding your child’s growth and development—physical changes such as height and weight, developmental milestones such as speech, emotional and mood changes. Your child’s well-child check is the perfect time to discuss concerns and ask questions of your primary care physician.

A routine well-child exam includes information for parents and caregivers about normal development, general care, immunizations, diet and nutrition and other essential advice about care of a growing child.

Preventive child health care schedule

All children should have well-child checkups from birth through childhood and adolescence. Taking your child to the doctor for an illness such as an ear infection should not take the place of a well-child exam. Well-child visits should be scheduled at the following ages:

  • Newborn - 24 months old
  • Well-Child Checkup: 3 Years
  • Well-Child Checkup: 4 Years
  • Well-Child Checkup: 5 Years
  • Well-Child Checkup: 6 to 10 Years
  • Well-Child Checkup: 11 to 13 Years
  • Well-Child Checkup: 14 to 18 Years

Visit a primary care doctor when your child is sick, or whenever you’re concerned about your child’s health or development.

What to bring

  • Photo ID and insurance card
  • Co-payment (if required by your insurance plan)
  • Full list of medications with dosages (including over-the-counter supplements)
  • Detailed history of symptoms and treatments
  • List of questions

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment so you have time to check in and fill out any necessary paperwork.
