Your baby’s health: 1st year checkups made simple

“They grow so fast!”

You hear that a lot. But it’s true that your baby’s first year of life is full of big changes and important developmental milestones. That’s why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your baby get a checkup every couple of months during the first year.


The good news is that preventive care, like well-baby visits, are covered at 100%.

These checkups are a great opportunity to build a good relationship with your child’s pediatrician and discuss important health decisions like vaccination, child safety, and nutrition choices.

During these visits, your pediatrician will also make sure your baby is reaching typical developmental milestones, and provide recommendations (and sometimes just reassurance) if your child’s developmental path is a bit atypical.
