Your Baby’s Nine-Month Checkup

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 05-11-2007

Babies need to go to the doctor often, even when they are well.
They get shots to keep them from catching diseases. They get a physical
exam to see how they are growing. If a problem is found, your doctor will
suggest what to do. Taking care of small problems now will often keep
them from becoming big problems later.

Doctor visits are also a good time to learn more. Ask the doctor or nurse
about such things as:

  • taking the baby’s temperature,
  • giving medicine or home remedies,
  • feeding milk and solid foods,
  • giving vitamins or other supplements,
  • putting the baby to sleep, and
  • following advice on baby care that others give you.
