When should my child visit a paediatrician?
Your baby’s first paediatrician visit should be within 48 to 72 hours of leaving the hospital. Their second visit should be at two to four weeks old. During their first year, your child should see their paediatrician at two, four, six, nine and 12 months of age. After your baby’s first birthday, they should be seen at 15, 18 and 24 months. After that, annual visits with your child’s paediatrician are recommended. Also, appointments can be made any time that you have a health concern or your child is ill.
