  • Mine went at 4 days and then again at 1 month. Then it was every 3 months until he was a year old.

  • We went in when dd was 5 days old (the day after we left the hospital lol), 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months for her regular checkups. Shots at 2/4/6 months. She also gets a weight check, and sees a nutritionist and GI doc monthly but that's not typical for every baby.
