6 Month Visit

Hopefully by now, you are getting some sleep and enjoying the laughter and babbles of your 6-month-old.

What to expect during this visit:

During this visit, we will weigh and measure your baby, do a full examination, discuss advancing the diet, development, and sleep and answer any questions that you may have. 
We also perform a fluoride varnish at each visit starting at tooth eruption until routine dental cleanings begin.

To facilitate your check in process, please take time to fill out the developmental screening questionnaire on GATEWAY prior to your visit today.  if you do not yet have a GATEWAY account, please arrive a few minutes early so that you can fill out the questionnaires in the office. 

The routine vaccinations for this visit are:

  • Pediarix - Combination of DTaP, IPV, and HBV (Hepatitis B virus) vaccine
  • Hib - Haemophilus Influenza type B conjugate vaccine
  • PCV-13 -  Pneumococcus 13-valent vaccine
  • Rota Teq - Oral rotavirus vaccine

(This is also the age at which your baby will begin to get the seasonal influenza vaccine)
