    Question Completely new

    Hi there, Well I'm not new to being a mum I have two girls Stella 3 and Isabel 5 months but I am new to Australia. Myself and husband have just immigrated here from Dublin, Ireland. We are currently living in the eastern suburbs of Sydney and i would love to meet up with other mums in the area. I'm also a bit confused about the developmental monitoring for babies in Australia. In Ireland there are check-ups at 3 months, 9 months etc. Is it the same here and if so where do I go to register Isabel for these check-ups? thanks to anyone who can help

    Default Baby Check-Ups

    Hi Erica,

    There should be an Early Childhood Health Centre in your suburb or surrounding area - look under Early Childhood Health or Community Health Centre in the phone book. The standard check-ups are at birth, 1-4wks, 6-8wks, 4mths, 6-8mths, 12mths, 18mths, 2.5-3.5yrs and 4-5yrs. Most centres are drop in and you're not confined to just the standard check-ups - go whenever you feel you need to.

    Hi Erica,

    My name is Gemma and bub is Grace 14mths. What part of Dublin are you from? My parents and I emmigrated from Dublin in 1983 (so I was just 31/2). I hope you enjoy Australia, its a lovely place to live and such a diverse country, both cuturally and environmentally.
