What Are Wellness Exams?
Wellness exams are important for every child. Your pediatrician's recommendation will be to come in for an appointment more frequently for checkups until your child is two, and then wellness visits can be annual. Your child will be examined physically, and the tests and screenings your pediatrician performs will depend on the child's age.
Developmental milestones can help tell us if your child is developing normally, physically, and mentally. Be prepared to answer questions about your baby or toddler's developmental milestones. Wellness exams also help identify chronic issues so we can intervene before they become debilitating. And besides that, growing up is tough! Wellness exams help your child stay healthy while their bodies and minds grow and change and help you stay informed about your child's health.
Wellness exams help ensure your child is healthy and hitting developmental milestones, but we also encourage you to use these wellness exams for your child as an opportunity to speak with a pediatrician. Come with any questions you have about your child's habits or behavior because all children have puzzling behavior at times! We can help determine what is normal for your child and if there is anything you should be concerned about.
