Healthy Child Monitoring

The aim of well-child follow-up is to detect preventable diseases in advance in order to sustain life in good health and to provide support to the baby and his/her family to improve the quality of life by taking precautions for them.

Healthy child follow-up includes regular health checks for infants, children and adolescents. This follow-up should be carried out in collaboration with the physician, family, nurse and allied health personnel and, if possible, the child should be evaluated together with the physical and social environment in which he/she lives.

For well-child follow-up, the child is discharged within 24-48 hours after birth. The first outpatient clinic control is planned 48-72 hours after discharge. In addition, our routine follow-ups, which continue as 15th day follow-up and 1st month follow-up, continue until the baby is 6 months old. After the baby turns 6 months old, he/she is called for follow-up at 3-month intervals, i.e. 9th, 12th, 15th and 18th months.

Healthy child follow-up is not a service that should be provided only to healthy children, but a health service in which the growth and development of all children are monitored, their health status is evaluated, and preventive medicine practices such as vaccination and health education are provided. It is recommended every six months between the ages of 2-6 years and annually after the age of 6 years.
