    The 6-month check-up: Vaccinations and more

    Congratulations, your baby has completed his first six months by now. He/she should be making all sorts of noises such as cooing or squealing.

    Get ready for some upcoming changes where you’ll soon be seeing your baby sitting and crawling all around. To ensure their ongoing health you can schedule a check-up with the doctor and here’s what you can expect during your visit to the doctor.

    Check-up with the doctor

    • They may also administer a flu shot depending on the season.

    • They will do a physical examination in your presence and pay attention to the baby’s movements.
