AAP: It depends upon their age. The american academy of pediatrics website has the recommended well visit schedule. And of course, any visit as needed determined by the problem.

Frequency of visit: If you are asking how often kids need to be seen, it depends on their age. In the first year of life it is very often (every few months). As the kids get older it may be as little as once a year or once every other year if they are healthy.

At least 1/yr: All pediatric patients should have a once a year for their annual check up! If they have on going medications or health issues at least every three to six months if stable.

It varies: Infants are seen frequently for well baby check ups and vaccination, but as the child grows up the visits can become annual check ups. Also the frequency depends on the medical problem the child has. Some problems need monthly or more frequent visits.
