18-Month Well-Baby Visit
Eighteen months is a milestone in a child’s development and a visit to a family physician or other health care provider at this time is important.
Ontario has recognized the importance of the 18-month well-baby visit by funding a longer, more in-depth visit.
The overall goal of this is to better support the healthy development and well-being of Ontario’s children. What it means for you and your child is that you can have a more detailed discussion about your child with your health care provider.
The Kenora and Rainy River District Best Start Networks are currently partnering to promote the 18-month well-baby visits to parents in our area. Parents can download the 18-month well-baby visit brochure to learn more about what to expect when they visit their health care provider.
