Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. You will have pediatric well-child visits most often when your child is developing the fastest.
Each visit includes a complete physical examination. At this exam, the health care provider will check the infant or young child’s growth and development and try to find problems early.
The health care provider will record your child’s height, weight, and other important information. Hearing, vision, and other tests will be part of some visits. Preventive care is important to keep children healthy.
