The Importance of Regular Wellness Checkups

Your child’s wellness checkups are important for several reasons, but the main purpose is to let your pediatrician examine your child to ensure that they are growing and developing as they should for their age. Caching any delays in development early on means that your child can get the treatment they need to grow into a healthy adult. The team of pediatricians at 7 Days Pediatrics in Edison can provide your child with regular wellness check-ups.

The Important Factors to Wellness Checkups

Edison parents like to book regular wellness checkups for their children so that they can protect their children in the following ways:

  • Prevention: Preventive care means that your child always gets their immunizations at the appropriate time in their life. It also means that they can have regular hearing and vision checks and you can ask your pediatrician for nutritional advice.
  • Growth and development: At each visit, you and your pediatrician will be able to see how your child has developed since your last appointment. This will allow you to learn if your child is meeting healthy developmental milestones.
  • Help and advice: Your child’s wellness check gives you an opportunity to raise any concerns or ask any questions about your child’s health. If you prepare a list of questions or topics before your appointment, you can be sure that you will not forget to discuss them. Some topics you may like to discuss include your child’s diet, sleep patterns, school development, relationships with siblings, and how to break habits such as thumb sucking or bedwetting.
