Ten check-ups can make a world of difference.
During the first two years of your child's life, it's important to take your little one to the pediatrician for regular check-ups.
Each check-up should include a physical exam, a conversation about appropriate growth, a check-in about developmental milestones, vaccinations, and ample time to ask questions about tips and information on keeping your baby healthy.
As a parent, you know your child better than anyone else, so let your baby's doctor know if you have any concerns about their health and development.
To help you know what you should be looking for around each of these check-ups, we've put together a milestone checklist. Save it, print it, stick it on the fridge. You've got this!
