From your child's birth to young adulthood, you'll be visiting the doctor regularly to make sure that your son or daughter is healthy and developing well.

It can be tough to remember what each visit will entail or which topics you want to discuss with the doctor. Our age-specific overviews give you a sense of what to expect at each visit and can help you keep track of the guidance your doctor provides.

Bookmark, print, or access them on your smartphone or tablet to have handy for your child's next checkup!
