Did you know that it is normal for babies and toddlers to be bowlegged, then for early school aged children to be knock kneed until around age 8? The abdomin is inspected for hernias. Outie belly buttons are often hernias and can go unnoticed by parents who have no clue or understanding of them. This is just off the top of my non-medical head.
Whoa. None of my kids have ever had any blood or urine tests at a regular check up.
And, yup, I did know that. Did you know that all kids should be far sighted until they are school age, and then their eyes adjust to a "normal" vision?
