Well Baby Visits: What to Expect

Congrats on your new baby! It's important for your baby to get regular checkups when they feel well in addition to when they are sick. We call these checkups well visits.

 From shots and nutrition to developmental milestones and safety, learn what to expect at your baby's first well visits. 

Well Baby Visits: Newborn

Congratulations on your new baby! Having a child is a large responsibility and can be a lot of work. At times it can seem overwhelming. As you are recovering from delivery, make sure you have enough support at home. Remember, in order to take care of a baby you need to take care of yourself.

Well Baby Visit: One Month

Your baby is now 1 month old! The purpose of your visit today is to check your baby’s weight and general health. We also want to make sure you have enough support and are not too overwhelmed. Many parents feel this age is more difficult than newborn.

Well Baby Visits: Two Months

Welcome to the 2-month visit! Your baby has grown so much in the first 2 months of life. He or she is starting to interact more with the world around him and develop his personality. The big event at this visit is your baby’s first round of vaccines. 

Well Baby Visits: Four Months

Your baby is now 4 months old! This can be a very rewarding time for caregivers, as baby is becoming more interactive by the day and learning to respond to social cues. You may notice your baby trying out new sounds. Some babies may start rolling over.

Well Baby Visits: Six Months

Your baby is now 6 months old! Babies at this age start to move around a lot more (roll, sit, try to crawl), so now is a good time to childproof your home. Many babies will start to settle into a more regular sleep pattern.

Happy Birthday to your baby! So much has happened in the past year and your baby is becoming a toddler. We will be making sure your baby is healthy and growing well.
