Well Child Visits

Your baby will see the pediatrician frequently the first two years of life. This is because a lot of development occurs in your baby’s first years, and the pediatrician will monitor this growth and determine that your baby is developing normally. If any developmental concerns arise, your pediatrician will refer you to the appropriate pediatric specialist for further evaluation and treatment.

A typical well child visit includes visits at the following ages:

  • The first week visit (3 to 5 days old)
  • 1 month old
  • 2 months old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
