6 Months Old

Hi, parents!

Your baby is already 6 months old! Along with his/her regular checkup, we recommend getting your baby’s eyes tested, too. Through Crow Wing County’s Child and Teen Checkups program, medical and vision appointments are FREE to anyone on Medical Assistance. Your baby’s 6-month checkup will include:

  • A chance to ask your questions
  • Reliable information about healthy food, sleep, behavior and safety
  • A check on how your baby is growing, learning, developing, and feeling
  • Time to talk about parenting
  • Weight, length, head size
  • Head-to-toe exam
  • Immunizations
  • Help finding regular dental care
  • Fluoride varnish for healthy teeth
  • Hearing and vision checks
  • Support with family needs:
    • Food, housing, utilities
    • Money or job resources
    • Child care
    • Transportation
    • Help with safe relationships, mental health or substance use
