Make the Most of Your Baby’s Visit to the Doctor (Ages 0 to 11 months) 


The Basics

Babies need to go to the doctor or nurse for a “well-baby visit” 6 times during their first year. A well-baby visit is when you take your baby to the doctor for a full checkup, separate from any other visit for sickness or injury.

At these visits, the doctor or nurse can help catch problems early, when they may be easier to treat. Make the most of your baby’s visit by:

  • Gathering important information
  • Making a list of questions for the doctor
  • Knowing what to expect from the visit

What about cost?
Well-baby visits are covered under the new Affordable Care Act. Depending on your insurance plan, your baby may be able to get well-baby checkups at no cost to you. Check with your insurance provider.
