At Peninsula Pediatrics, we don’t just help your children when they’re sick; we help them, and your whole family, stay well all the time.
Welcome to toddlerhood! Your little one is likely a bundle of energy with tons of curiosity but sense of their own limitations! This makes for a fun and challenging time period. Your little one requires near constant attention to make sure they are safe. They will start to say a few words and for the foreseeable future, their understanding will far exceed their spoken language. Your little one can likely follow simple commands.
Before your visit, you will receive a link to the following questionnaires
PEDS-DM: This questionnaire is a standardized developmental screening that you will receive at all your little one’s well visits from ages 5 weeks to 5 years.
At this visit you should expect your child to
- Have their weight, length, and head circumference measured
- Have a complete physical exam
- Have their vision checked using an instrument based screening tool (Read more about how this works and why it is important)
- Have a finger prick to check for anemia and lead levels.
What vaccines or screening tests should I expect at this visit
The second and final Hepatitis A is given.
This is a well tolerated vaccine with little to no side effects.
When is my little one’s next visit?
The next visit is in 6 months when your little one is 2.5 years old.
