“Well-baby clinics” are specially designed to provide comprehensive and continuing care to newborn babies with emphasis on physical and mental hygiene and prophylaxis, where mothers are seen with their young, healthy infants and helped to understand and manage the infant's unfolding maturation and development.
1. Assessment of growth (Length, weight & head circumference measurements should be taken with each visit – These measurements are plotted on growth charts and are compared to previous and later markings to make sure the baby is growing as expected) and development, speech and language, social behavior, physical examination and educate the parents regarding the attainment of milestones appropriate for age.
2. .Well baby clinic is an excellent place for Primary Prevention & Family Education especially on breast feeding & good nutrition.
3. .Assessments of the baby's reflexes and neurological developments.
4.Visual & hearing assessment.

Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to prevent diseases.
A vaccine helps the body’s immune system to recognize and fight pathogens like viruses or bacteria, which then keeps us safe from the diseases they cause. Vaccines protect against more than 25 debilitating or life-threatening diseases, including measles, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, meningitis, influenza, tetanus, typhoid and cervical cancer.
How do vaccines work? Do they work against viruses and bacteria?
Vaccines work to prime your immune system against future “attacks” by a particular disease. There are vaccines against both viral and bacterial pathogens, or disease-causing agents.
When a pathogen enters your body, your immune system generates antibodies to try to fight it off. Depending on the strength of your immune response and how effectively the antibodies fight off the pathogen, you may or may not get sick.
If you do fall ill, however, some of the antibodies that are created will remain in your body playing watchdog after you’re no longer sick. If you’re exposed to the same pathogen in the future, the antibodies will ”recognize” it and fight it off.
Why are vaccines given at such an early age?
Because vaccines prevent the diseases which can occur at an early age. Some diseases are far more serious or common among infants or young children. For example, up to 60% of severe disease caused by Haemophilusinfluenzae type b occurs in children under 12 months of age. Again, the age at which a particular vaccine is given to your child also depends upon the geographical area and that county’s health care policy, and this will in turn depend on the prevalence of a particular disease in that area/country.
What if my child misses a dose of vaccine?
They can continue the series where they left off. Vaccinations are not rendered invalid and do not have to be repeated when there is a longer-than-recommended interval between doses in a series.
How safe are vaccines?
They are very safe. But like any medicine, they are not perfect. They can cause reactions. Usually these are mild, like a sore arm or slight fever. Serious reactions are very uncommon. Your health-care provider will discuss the risks with you before your child gets each vaccine. The important thing to remember is that vaccines are much safer than the diseases they prevent.
Do vaccines always work?
Vaccines work most of the time, but not always. Most childhood vaccinations work between 90% and 100% of the time. Sometimes, though, a child may not respond to certain vaccines, for reasons that aren’t entirely understood.
What will happen if my child doesn’t get his vaccinations?
One of two things could happen:
If your child goes through life without ever being exposed to any of these diseases, nothing will happen.
If your child is exposed to one of these diseases, there is a good chance he will get it. What happens then depends on the child and the disease. Most likely he would get ill and have to stay in bed for a few days up to 1–2 weeks. But he could also get very sick and have to go to the hospital. At the very worst, he could die. In addition, he could also spread the disease to other children or adults who are not immune.
