How often should children have checkups?

While this can vary based on your child's health and individual growth, the recommended age schedule for well-child visits is as follows:

  • one month old
  • two months old
  • four months old
  • six months old
  • nine months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old

  • 24 months old

After the age of two, your well-child appointments are usually once a year. These visits are important during your child’s developmental years because the doctors can monitor your child’s growth and ensure that important milestones are met. While a well-child visit is the time for a general evaluation of overall health, these visits also provide an excellent opportunity to discuss preventive care and nutritional needs.
