Why does my baby need regular health checkups (doctor's visits)?

Infants, children and youth should get regular health checks-ups to make sure they are healthy. These routine check-ups are often called well-baby or well child exams. They are important in addition to "sick-child" visits, because they can find health problems early. Well-child visits also assure you that your child is growing and developing normally. Most health insurance covers well-child exams on a regular schedule. Click well-child exams for more information. Children without health insurance may be eligible for MO HealthNet for Kids (MHK).
