Well Child Visits: What to Expect

It is important that your child receive regular “Well Child” check-ups with your Pediatric Primary Care Provider (PCP). The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all parents take their children to at least 12 checkups during the first three years of life.

During a well child visit, your child’s PCP will review your child’s health, aspects of their development, and provide any necessary vaccines. Your PCP may also screen your child for health problems; either through blood work or by asking health-related questions. These visits are also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have related to your child’s health and development.

Your child’s PCP will develop and recommend a schedule for your child’s healthcare.

Well Child visits are recommended at the following ages:

  • 3 to 5 days old.
  • By 1 month.
  • 2 months.
  • 4 months.
  • 6 months.
  • 9 months.
  • 1 year.
  • 15 months.
  • 18 months.
  • 2 years.
  • 30 months.
  • 3 years.

After age 3, Well Child visits are usually scheduled once a year.

If you are in need of an appointment for your child or transportation assistance for your child’s appointment, please contact our Customer Service Department today at 1-888-JAI-1999.

Healthy Habits for this Spring

With Spring time around the corner, we tend to think about those New Year’s resolutions that we may have made to ourselves at the beginning of the year such as “I am going to be healthier this year” or “I am going to work out more.” Often times though, we have not even started. There is no better time than now though to start on your journey to living a healthier lifestyle.

Here are 5 tips that you can start today to improve your health and make 2020 your healthiest year yet!

With Spring time around the corner, we tend to think about those New Year’s resolutions that we may have made to ourselves at the beginning of the year such as “I am going to be healthier this year” or “I am going to work out more.” Often times though, we have not even started. There is no better time than now though to start on your journey to living a healthier lifestyle.

Here are 5 tips that you can start today to improve your health and make 2020 your healthiest year yet!

1. Prioritize Sleep
Sleep is very important to one’s health, but it is often the last thing on our list. Aim to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night.

2. Move Your Body
It is recommended that adults take 10,00 steps a day, so walk, run or jog if you can. With warmer weather approaching, plan a daily walk with friends, try a new outdoor sport or dance when you can.

3. Re-Think Your Drink
Instead of reaching for a sugary soda or juice to drink, try reaching for a glass of water. To mix it up, try a sparkling water with natural flavors!

4. Eat A Healthy Diet
Eating healthier doesn’t have to be hard; try adding in a fruit or vegetable at every meal.

5. Visit Your Primary Care Provider
Schedule your annual physical with your PCP. Be sure to bring any health related questions that you may have to your visit.
