Q.

Paed vs GP

Hi Doctor.
My LO has just turned 3 and since 2 of her paeds left the country before she was 2. I have only been taking her tothe GP when she is sick.
Is it necessary for her to be " checked"  by a paed at any stage or is takeing her to the GP when necessary sufficient?

Paediatrician

If your little girl is healthy and happy and growing and developing normally there is no need to take her to a paediatrician for check ups.
