Well Baby Visit: 6 Months

Your 6-month-old laughs and coos when you bring her in for this visit. She'll easily enchant your provider as she has you. Babies this age are still growing rapidly. By 6 months a baby is sitting up or getting ready to sit up and her back is straightening out. This is an enjoyable new perspective for your baby as she learns to play in more elaborate ways. Everything goes in her mouth — it's her way of exploring.

Your baby will get a lot of immunizations at this visit. Her thigh (or wherever your provider administers these shots) might be redder than before, and she may get a slight fever as a result. Don't worry: These reactions show your baby's building up a strong resistance to some serious diseases. Be sure to bring her immunization card.

Tip! To help ease the pain from the shots, give your baby the infant version of acetaminophen. Your provider will be able to give you samples of this pain reliever. If you have your own, bring the bottle with you so your provider can show you the correct dose for your baby's age and weight.

Let the office know if there's been a change in your health insurance. Bring in your insurance card.
