Well-child visits

Every child needs regular checkups throughout childhood to monitor growth and development, and to address small medical concerns before they become larger issues.

  • A few days after hospital discharge
  • Two weeks
  • One month
  • Two months
  • Four months
  • Six months
  • Nine months
  • One year
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • Two years
  • 2.5 years
  • Annually starting at three years

If your child's provider has any special concerns, more frequent visits might be recommended.

A well-child checkup typically includes:

  • Checks of height and weight.
  • Monitoring of heart and lung function.
  • Examination of the eyes, ears, nose and throat.
  • A visual examination of the skin.
  • Administration of any necessary vaccines.
  • Time to discuss any concerns related to health or development.
