  • 1 to 3 days of birth for breastfed newborns
  • within the first 2 weeks after birth
  • 1 month

  • around every birthday every year after that

At each visit, we’ll check your child’s growth, development, overall health and give any recommended routine immunizations.

We promote healthy living and emotional well-being for kids at every age and stage. Think of us as your child’s “medical home,” here for you through all of those important growth and development milestones, and partnering with you to help your child grow up healthy.

Some common conditions we refer children for include:

And every member of your child’s Nemours pediatric care team (your child’s primary care pediatrician, advance practice nurse or specialist) will have access to your child’s medical information, with just the click of a button.

 
Offering Advice and Information for Every Age

Nemours' holistic approach to primary care pediatrics also includes providing you with guidance about what to expect as your child grows, including information about things like:

  • developmental milestones (when you can expect your child to crawl, walk, talk, run, hop, throw a ball)
  • behavior (dealing with tantrums, timeouts, positive parenting, etc.)
  • nutrition (breastfeeding advice, feeding finicky eaters, ensuring a healthy diet in older kids, etc.)
  • injury prevention (childproofing, car safety, bike safety, gun safety, fire safety, water safety, etc.)
