Well-child visits are a time when parents can check up on their child's health and make sure they're growing and developing normally. Well-child visits usually start a few days after children are born and continue until they turn 18.
Choices for your child's care include your primary care physician (family practice doctor), or a pediatrician.
At this exam, the health care provider will check the child's growth and development in order to find or prevent problems. The provider will record your child's height, weight, and other important information. Hearing, vision, and other screening tests will be part of some visits.
