Your 12 month MCH visit

At this consultation your child’s growth, health and development will be reviewed.

This consultation will focus on:

  • your Parents' Evaluation of Development Status (PEDS) questions in your My Health, Learning and Development Record (remember to complete these questions before the visit if you can)
  • helping your child to eat healthy food
  • taking care of your child's teeth
  • how to be sun smart
  • how play helps learning and development
  • family relationships and wellbeing
  • immunisations.

Remember, you and your nurse can talk about other issues or concerns if they arise.

Please tell the nurse if your baby:

  • is not enjoying eye contact or cuddles with you
  • is not interested in sounds
  • is not letting you know what they want
  • is not seeming to understand you
  • is not crawling or standing holding on
  • is not pointing.
