    Kids well visits

    So does a 6 year old need a well visit to her doc's office? The annual check up that is. I think so, but some people said it's a waste of time.

      Most schools require a doc's certificate each year that shows all innoculations up to date, hearing and eye tests and general health info....so its pretty mandatory. A good idea anyway to have an annual physical.

        This US government recommended schedule for kids well visits:

        Ages 0-1 (Infancy)

        Well visits at ages 1-2 weeks, and 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, and 12 months.


        Ages 1-4 (Early Childhood)


        Well visits at ages 15, 18, and 24 months, then at 3 and 4 years old.


        Ages 5-21 (Middle Childhood, Adolescence, Young Adult)


        Well visits annually (once every year).
        Fools never disagree.

          Yeah, that's what I thought. Why were they telling me to chill and wait for a couple of years?

            Who is they? I hope its not a medical professional. I think its a good idea to get child checked out annualy at well-visits. (Just to ensure everything is going well in terms of growth/health.eating...etc....

                Afro, "they" are some friends!

                My older one had her first dental visit at 3 but the younger one went at 2 and a half, a few weeks ago.

                  definitely should have regular annual check ups
