When do I visit the PD

Hello, when do I hv to visit the PD? Do we hv to visit in between vaccines? I only went to PD first week after birth, then vaccine was done at Polyclinic. So the doctor at the Polyclinic just briefly looked at my boy. If he is all healthy do we still need to bring him to PD?

It depends on whether you have any specific concerns to address. If all is good, there is no need to. However, do note that polyclinic doctors are not specialised in paediatric issues, do take their advice with a pinch of salt. It’s best to see a PD if there’s any medical concern.

Up to your comfort level. The doctors at polyclinic are not PD. They can do a rough check, but if you’re worried, you can always head to a private PD for a detailed development check together with vaccines.

I don’t bring my kids to the PD unless there’s anything serious. The polyclinics do the developmental assessment at certain intervals and I monitor my baby’s development and growth on my own at home.

You can just bring your baby to the polyclinic for vaccines, and if your baby is unwell bring to PD. Otherwise there is no need to bring to PD..

you go polyclinic for vaccination. you bring your baby to PD if theres any concern about your baby.

Depends on you. If baby is growing well, I feel it's not necessary to visit a PD.
