Are you expecting or a new parent?
We know there’s a lot to think about. Here are some helpful things to know. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your baby has their first well visit at their pediatricians office 1-3 days after discharged. We agree with this recommendation and would love to meet you and your new bundle of joy shortly after being discharged from the hospital.
After that, the following well visit schedule is recommended:
- 2 weeks of age
- 6 weeks of age
- 4 months old
- 6 months old
- 9 months old
- 12 months old
- 15 months old
- 18 months old
- 2 years old
- 2.5 years old
- 3 years old
- Yearly after age 3 through 21 years of age
Our providers may request for your baby to return to our office between these scheduled visits as they tailor plans to each individual child based on their unique needs. If you desire for your baby to be seen sooner than these recommendations, please feel free to discuss that with the provider at your visit!
