4 Year Well Child Visit

Check out the milestones your child has reached by the age of 4!

Safety continues to be a priority for your increasingly independent and curious toddler.

You should have the number for Poison Control Center 1-800-222-1222 available and posted for easy retrieval.  It's a good idea to program it into your cell phone if you haven't already done so.  Make sure grandparents and sitters know where to find the number as well.   

Your child should continue to ride in a carseat or booster seat, every time they ride in a car, even for short trips.  There are excellent resources available online for car safety seat questions: www.safercar.gov and thecarseatlady.com

Reading to your child every day can create a lifelong love of learning and is a good way to bond with your child.  Reading with your child helps them develop important listening skills and gets them ready for school.
