Well child care


Well-child visits are key times for communication. Expect to be given information about normal development, nutrition, sleep, safety, diseases that are "going around," and other important topics such as what to expect as your child grows up.

Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. Your child will have more pediatric well-child visits when they are younger and developing the fastest.

Each visit includes a complete physical examination. At this exam, the health care provider will check the infant or child's growth and development in order to find or prevent problems.

The health care provider will record your child's height, weight, and other important information. Hearing, vision, and other screening tests will be part of some visits.



When germs enter the body, the immune system recognizes them as foreign substances (antigens). The immune system then produces the right antibodies to fight the antigens.

Vaccines contain weakened or dead versions of the antigens that cause diseases. This means that the antigens cannot produce the signs or symptoms of the disease, but they do stimulate the immune system to create antibodies. These antibodies help protect you if you are exposed to the disease in the future.

Vaccines not only help keep your child healthy, they help all children by stamping out serious childhood diseases. Vaccines are generally quite safe. The protection provided by vaccines far outweighs the very small risk of serious problems. Vaccines have made many serious childhood diseases rare today. Talk to your family doctor if you have any questions.
