Babies and Toddlers - birth through 3 years
Regular check-ups can keep you baby happy and healthy. You can find out about your baby's growth, weight and health, and needed shots are given. At 1 year and 2 years, your baby should be tested for lead. A test for anemia is also given. Your child should see a dentist at least once a year starting by age 1.
School Children - 4 through 12 years
It is important to make sure your child is healthy and ready for school. State laws
