The benefits of well-child visits include tracking your child’s growth and development. Your pediatrician will review your child’s growth since the last visit and talk with you about your child’s development. These visits are a time to review and discuss each of the important areas of your child’s develop- ment, including physical, cognitive, emotional, and social devel- opment. Pediatricians often use a resource called Bright Futures to assess and guide discussions with parents about child develop- ment. Parents can access Bright Futures to review information relevant to their child’s age using the website at the bottom of this page. Another benefit of a well-child visit is the opportunity to talk about prevention. For many children in the United States, the most common cause of harm is a preventable injury or illness. The well-child visit is an opportunity to review critical strategies to protect your child from injury, such as reviewing car seat use and safe firearm storage. The well-child visit is an opportunity to ensure your child is protected from infectious diseases by review- ing and updating his or her immunizations.
