Paediatrics FAQs

How often should my child see a paediatric specialist for routine check-ups?


Answering this question depends on your child’s age. A healthy child who is at least two or three years old usually only has to visit their doctor for a routine check-up once a year. Younger kids will have to go more often. Babies might need to go every one or two months until they are a year old. 

What age range does paediatrics cover?


The age range for paediatrics coverage is from birth until adolescents. Birth to two years of age is regarded as infancy, childhood begins from age two to 12, and adolescence is from 12 to 21 years of age

How can I prepare for my child's paediatric appointment?


Preparing your child ahead of time and talking to them about their upcoming appointment is one of the best ways to prepare them to see their paediatricians. Children experience less anxiousness when they know what is expected of them. Also, it is always helpful to explain to them what paediatricians do; explain to your child that their paediatrician is there to help and assist them. Reading books about visits to the doctor’s clinic is also beneficial. When in doubt, ask your children’s doctor on effective ways to prepare your child for their appointment.
