A Healthy Future
The American Academy of Pediatrics developed a set of comprehensive health supervision guidelines for well-child care, called Bright Futures, for pediatricians to follow. The mission of Bright Futures is to promote and improve the health, education, and well-being of infants, children, adolescents, families, and communities.

"Well-child care is so important," stresses Dr. Tanner. "Taking your child to the doctor when he or she is feeling under the weather is simply not enough. The AAP recognized the need for a schedule of visits (see below) to the pediatrician because when you know a visit is approaching, you can prepare for topics of discussion. Starting the dialogue can lead to a healthier life for your child overall, and that is the ultimate goal."

Schedule of Well-Child Care Visits

•2 months
•4 months
•6 months
•9 months
•12 months
•15 months
•18 months
•2 years old (24 months)

And once every year thereafter for an annual health supervision visit that includes a physical exam as well as a developmental, behavioral, and learning assessment.
