Baby Check

Baby Check is a tool to help parents decide if their baby under 6 months old needs a doctor.

Using Baby Check for babies under 6 months old

Sometimes it can be difficult to know whether your baby is unwell and to decide if you need to see a doctor right away. 

Baby Check was developed by doctors who analysed the signs and symptoms of illness in over 1000 babies under 6 months of age to help parents decide if their baby needs a doctor. 

Baby Check is easy to use and it's free. If you like you can try out Baby Check when your baby is well to get used to doing the checks. That way it will be easier to use Baby Check when you are worried about your baby.

If you are worried about your baby, always see your doctor.
