There are many new responsibilities when you have a baby. One of them is to make sure that your baby gets regular checkups, which are called well-baby exams. These exams are important in making sure that your baby is growing and developing properly. If there are problems, you can catch them early. This means that there is a better chance for treatment.

During these checkups, your baby will get any needed vaccines and screenings. This is also a good chance to ask your health care provider any questions about how to care for your baby. The provider will let you know how often your baby should get these checkups.
