In brief: Age-related

You should expect being asked about your child's history and feeding, your concerns and plans; a physical exam including measurements (child should be undressed for that); your answers (even some you didn't ask) should be answered; and certain other actions (tests, immunizations, etc) will be discussed, and possibly done, as appropriate.

You will also be asked about your child's development in the areas of motor, social, cognitive, and expressive and receptive language.

In brief: Preventative Care

The routinely scheduled well visits for babies have multiple components.
Growth and nutrition are assessed, anticipatory guidance is given, the infant is examined and vaccinations are provided. It is also an opportunity for caregivers to ask questions about their child.
