In the December 2010 issue of ParentLife, our 1- to 2-year Growth Spurts article was about healthy development. Here are the basic questions you are likely to be asked at your child’s well-child visits to the doctor during this time.
- What are your child’s eating habits?
- How is your child sleeping?
- Is your child walking?
- Does your child say "no"?
- Is your child saying at least six words, such as mama and dada?
- Does your child respond to simple commands?
- Is there anything unusual about the way your child looks at things?
- Is your child physically active?
- What new words is your child learning?
- Is your child showing readiness for toilet training?
BabyCenter has printable worksheets for the 18-month and 2-year checkups, if you want to prepare answers in advance as well as record any questions you might have for the pediatrician so you don’t forget!
Do you do anything to prepare for well-child visits?
