Well Baby and Well Child
The Well Baby/Well Child visit is provided by one of our nurses with support from our Nurse Practitioners. They are a time when parents can address concerns and ask questions in a supportive environment.
During a well baby/child visit, a nurse will perform a physical exam and offer education to parents/caregivers about topics such as feeding, sleep, hygiene, safety, post-partum depression, medication, and more. The exam will assess the child’s growth and development utilizing the Rourke Baby Record.
Well baby/child visits usually start a week after birth and continue with the following schedule:
- 2 months
- 4 months
- 6 months
- 9 months
- 12 months
- 18 months
- 2 years
