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 or MinnesotaCare. Your child’s 12-month checkup will include:

Health education and guidance 
Measurement (height and weight/head circumference)
Health history, including nutrition
Relationship development 
Social and emotional development
Physical exam 
Blood lead test
Hemoglobin/hematocrit (once between 9–15 months)
Vision check
Hearing check 
Dental referral for regular preventive checkups
