12 Months Old

Happy Birthday!

Your little one has now been in the world for an entire year and he/she is growing and developing fast. Make an appointment with his/her doctor so you know what to expect. A dental checkup is also needed once that first tooth appears. Through Crow Wing County’s Child and Teen Checkups program, these appointments are FREE to anyone on Medical Assistance. Your child’s 12-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, if needed
  • Blood check for lead and anemia(once between 9 to 15 months)
  • 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
