Children's Health Matters: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:37 by admin
Children can have a myriad of healthcare issues beginning at the time of birth and lasting through adolescence.

During the first few days of life, the newborn is examined by a doctor and monitored by the hospital staff (although hospital stays have become shorter). Throughout the infant's first year, he or she may experience many milestones including sitting up, recognizing others, and walking. Some problems may occur, however, in which case a visit to the doctor may be necessary. Some of these conditions may include, but are certainly not limited to, feeding and bowel problems, seizure disorders, infections, birth defects, phobias, and learning disabilities. In addition, children must visit a doctor to receive a series of innoculations.
