6-8 week review

The 6-8 week review appointment is an important opportunity to speak with a health visitor to discuss your baby’s development and progress and talk to you about your babies feeding, sleep, immunisations, dental health, vitamin D, home safety, minor illnesses and managing high temperatures.

The health visitor will also talk to you about your own emotional health and provide information on any support you may need. 

The appointment date and time will be given to you at your new birth visit and you will need to bring your baby’s redbook to the appointment.

Our Health Visitor advice lines and Child health drop ins provide support for you and your family on all aspects of child health, development and parenting.  On these pages you will find all information and contact details.
