MD visit

Taking your baby to the pediatrician for check-ups is very important. During the visit, your baby's doctor will examine your baby and will weigh and measure your baby to ensure your baby is growing optimally. A developmental assessment will also be done along with ensuring that vaccinations are up-to-date according to the CDC's recommended schedule.
 
During the first year of life, your baby will visit the doctor frequently. The first visit usually occurs within the first 2 weeks of life, but most pediatricians like to see the baby within 2-4 days after discharge from the hospital and then again at around the second week of life. Subsequent well-baby visits are usually scheduled at 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, and 24 months.
 
During your baby's checkup, be sure to discuss any concerns or questions with your pediatrician. Keep a notepad handy and jot down questions/topics to discuss with your pediatrician so when you get your appointment, you can be sure to get all your questions addressed.
