Q.

6 month check up with pead

Is it really necessary to take LO for a 6 month check up with a peadiatrician? What do they check for?

I didnt take LO for 6 weeks check up and she is still fine, drinking and enjoying the solids she just started. Sleeps well and does not appear to be sick or in pain. So my logical conclusion is that she is healthy.

Paediatrician

She does not need to be examined as all seems well and her progress is good. I presume that her immunisations are up to date.
