These checkups are a series of appointments where our pediatricians perform the necessary tests and screenings to make sure your child is developing and growing as they should.
During these sessions, you will also learn about the well-child visit schedule or the predetermined timeframes you should make a checkup appointment with your child’s pediatrician to ensure that your kid is hitting the necessary milestones as planned.
Naturally, well-child visits are more frequent during infancy and the first few years of childhood and will become less frequent as the child ages.
Our pediatricians will take the time and discuss everything you should know about children’s milestones and preferred sleeping and eating patterns. Also, these experts will help you set up a safe environment for your child and also tell you about the things you should expect as your bundle of joy continues to grow.
Well-child visits are imperative as crucial immunizations happen during these checkups, beginning with your child’s two-week-old visit.
Remember, when it comes to the health and well-being of your child, there are no such things as silly questions. You can also think about these visits as appointments where you can voice your own concerns. As a matter of fact, many pediatricians are themselves parents, meaning they will understand what you may be going through.
