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
  • Continued annual visits recommended
