  • Four months is the usual for well-baby visits: 1, 2, 4, 6, and so on...

  • I agree with everyone else 4 months....not to mention your Dr. should have told you when to come back. Our Dr. always tells us when to come back, and that if we need anything before then to call or make an appt.

  • Yeah...4 month well-visit. And if your doctor didn't tell you, it's time to find a new doctor...

  • 4 months. (1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 2 y/o)  See if you ped's office can schedule your little one's next wellness visit at the end of every appointment, that way you won't have to worry about when the next one is due & they will give you a reminder call a few days prior to confirm.
