At 6-8 weeks, your baby should have a thorough physical examination. This is usually done by a GP.
Your baby’s eyes, heart, hips and – for boys – testicles will be checked. They’ll also have their weight and other relevant measures taken.
A GP or health visitor will discuss your baby’s vaccinations with you. These are offered at 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks and 12 months old, and before your child starts school.
They’ll also ask you how you’ve been feeling emotionally and physically since the birth of your baby.
