18-Month Well Baby Visit

Do you have a toddler?  If so, 18-months is an important time in their development.

It’s important to schedule a well-baby visit with your health care provider at this time.  At your child’s appointment you’ll have the chance to talk about your child’s development.  In addition, your health care provider will:

  • give your child their 18-month immunizations
  • weigh and measure your child
  • answer any questions that you may have.

You will also receive a coupon for a free book from your local Best Start Hub.  You can download the 18-month well baby pamphlet to learn more.
