  • Vomiting

What can I expect from a children’s health appointment?

Family Health Center of Bastrop, specializes in the latest techniques for preventative care, treating acute and chronic conditions for all ages. 

During your child’s check-up, your practitioner conducts an exam to benchmark your child’s growth, measuring your child’s height and weight. 

The visit may also include:

  • Vision screening
  • Hearing screening
  • Blood tests
  • Immunizations

As your child gets older, your child might need testing for other types of issues, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, scoliosis, and depression.

At your visits, you should ask your doctor about any of your concerns and also talk about changes you’ve noticed in your child’s physical development and behavior if any.

How often should I schedule a children’s health appointment?

You should bring your child in regularly for wellness exams. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends bringing your newborn in about one week after giving birth. You should then bring your child in every three months until age 18 months. 

After your 18 month check-up, you need to bring your child in at ages two, two-and-a-half, and three. After that, you should schedule annual exams up to the age of 21.
