Q.

6 month check up and Flouride suppl

I would like to know how important it is to take one's child for the 6 month paediatrician check up (we are going for regular clinic check ups) and what is the recommendation for flouride supplementation? There was, not so long ago, an indication that government would be putting flouride in drinking water, but I cannot find information as to whether this has been effected or not.

The 6 month check up is not necessary.You will have to find out from your local health authority if they add flouride to your drinking water.
