  • I think just 18month but Im not sure you can call the doctor you will be seeing and ask them about it some doctors feel differently and might want to do a check up on your child at 15 months.

  • We went at 12, 15, 18, and just this week 21 months, but she was also a premie so I would call and check with the doctor.

  • My daughter had a 15 month and she is going to have a 18 month next month. I know some do not do the 15 month check though. I would just call and ask. It wont hurt to have the extra check up.

  • every doctor is different but what you could do is make an appointment to actually introduce your child to the ped. and just do a check up because considering its a new doctor and new place its a good idea to do it. even if its not a routine check up. every place is different. call the new place and ask.
