9-12 month review

When your child is between 9 and 12 months old you will be offered an appointment to attend your local clinic where your health professional will complete a review with you and your child. This is an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and development. Topics may include speech and communication, healthy eating, behaviour, sleep, immunisations and dental care. This review may take place within a group with other 9-12 month olds and their parents.

Your health professional will also be able to support you with any concerns you may have for yourself and/or your family.

Should your child miss this appointment, you can arrange a new appointment up to 12 months of age. Please contact your local team  to arrange this.

If you have any concerns regarding your child’s progress, please contact our Advice Line, which is manned Monday-Friday from 9.30am to 1pm. Tel: 0208 979 6464

You will need to bring your Personal child health record ('Red book'), as well as any other information you feel may be relevant (eg hospital letters). Support your child’s language development using CSH Surrey Face2Face activity resources.

Did you know...? From six months, all babies who are drinking less than 500ml formula a day need to be given a Vitamin D supplement, as do all babies/young children up to the age of five to help them to develop healthy bones.

This is because we and our children are unable to get enough Vitamin D from sunlight in this country, or from diet alone.

Speak to your health visitor or nursery nurse in clinic for more information about why Vitamin D is important.
