How often do you take you kids for check ups after age 5?

Do you still do it annually? I am not talking about when they get sick. Just check ups like the well baby check ups.

  • No, but our kids go in to see the doctor at least once a year anyway so we don't do the "well child" exams. Even though our insurance is supposed to pay 100% of those, it never does so we just go when we actually have a reason.
