Bringing your baby to the doctor for well-baby visits is a good way to keep them up to date for their immunization schedule required for daycare or school. Here’s a brief overview to help you make the most of these appointments.
Six well-baby visits are recommended before your baby turns one. These visits occur at 2-3 days, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, and 9 months.
Keep track of your baby’s progress. From lifting their head at 2 months to sitting without support at 9 months, these milestones are crucial markers for healthy development.
Bring important records, note changes in your baby’s life, and don’t hesitate to reach out between visits if you have concerns about your baby’s health or development.
Check with your insurance provider as well-child visits are often covered. If uninsured, inquire about free or low-cost options at local health centers.
Prepare a list of questions about growth, sleep, feeding, and other concerns. Jot down the answers for future reference.
What to Expect:
Each visit involves a comprehensive examination, checking vital signs and asking about behavior, health, safety, activities, eating habits, and family dynamics.
