Pediatrics and Well-Baby Checks

Pediatrics is health care for children under the age of 18. Well-Baby Checks are check-ups for babies.


Dr. Messbarger with babyBoth pediatrics and Well-Baby Checks help the doctor know if your child or baby is healthy. These check-ups include a physical exam and, if needed, vaccinations (shots).  The doctor will check the child's heart, ears, nose, and throat.  He or she will measure and weigh the child, as well as check other physical signs that the child is doing well. The doctor will also ask you questions about your child's health and activities, and will provide information about things you can expect during this time in their lives.

 It is important you bring your child in for his or her regular check-ups at the ages below:

  • 3 to 5 days   
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
