Parents need to know why your child’s well-care appointments are important and review our recommended schedule for well-care vaccinations.
Well care helps you know what to expect as your child grows and to establish an ongoing dialogue with the provider about your child’s development and growth.
Before your child’s well-care visit, be sure to prepare questions for your provider. In addition to overall health concerns, common issues to discuss include behavior, nutrition, language development and allergies.
It’s a good idea to schedule your child’s well-care visit well in advance to assure your provider’s availability.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) offers a free Ages & Stages texting program for parents with children up to age 5. You’ll receive messages about injury prevention; nutrition and feeding; what to expect at well-care check-ups; upcoming vaccine reminders; and developmental milestones to watch for. Visit the Healthy Children website to sign up.
