I was wondering how many well-child/ check-up visits to the doctor are usually done in the USA in a child's first three years or so? My twins were born in Ireland so I am not sure what the usual is here, or whether it depends on the doctor. As the kids are healthy (Thank G_d!), they don't go to see the doctor other than for vaccinations and so I want to know if I should make appointments for them for a check-up? They had their one year check-up and vaccinations in February of course, and everything was fine.
In Ireland, there would be a 18 months visit to check on development (walking, hearing, speech etc), weight and height etc, and then another vaccination visit at 2 years and 3 years. Is it the same here?
