Well-child visits are important for the health and wellbeing of your child. At these appointments, your child’s pediatrician evaluates your child’s overall physical and emotional health. They make sure your baby’s development is on track.
Your baby’s first pediatrician visit should be within 48 to 72 hours of leaving the hospital. Their second visit should be at two to four weeks old. During their first year, your child should see their pediatrician at two, four, six, nine and 12 months of age. After your baby’s first birthday, they should be seen at 15, 18 and 24 months. After that, annual visits with your child’s pediatrician are recommended.
All children deserve high-quality medical care. There are many common childhood illnesses and the treatments of common diseases (as sore throat , ear pain, urinary tract infections , skin infections , bronchitis, bronchiolitis , pain , common cold , bacterial sinusitis and cough etc.) are also differs from adults . Your pediatrician, as a person that has the full knowledge about your child will provide the best medical care for your child, especially if your child has an ongoing medical condition or allergy. Your pediatrician will discuss any variations in treatment with you.
Chronic refers to a health condition that lasts anywhere from three months to a lifetime.
Fighting chronic disease starts with better pediatric care.
It is especially important to see the same pediatrician if your child has a chronic condition, such as asthma, ADHD, high blood pressure or diabetes. Research shows that patients who see the same pediatrician for these types of problems have better control of the condition than patients who see different pediatricians at their visits.
Another plus for parents – you don’t have to tell your child’s story to each new face you see, making appointments quicker for your family. Your pediatrician can help you navigate through a sometimes complex health system to ensure your child gets the exact care they need and can often limit the need to refer to other specialists.
On-time vaccination throughout childhood is essential because it helps provide immunity before children are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases.
The recommended schedule of immunizations has been researched and documented to be the most effective and safe way to protect children. The vaccines are carefully timed to provide protection when children are most vulnerable, and when the vaccines will produce the strongest response from the child’s immune system.
Your pediatrician will inform you about the vaccines and guide you to administer the vaccines to your children timely.
