17 to 18 months checkup


When your child is 17 to 18 months old, you will be offered a group consultation with a public health nurse at the health centre. You will be asked whether there is anything you wish to discuss.

Who you will meet

  • public health nurse


The public health nurse will discuss topics such as:

  • the interaction between you and the child
  • diet and eating habits
  • your child's sleep
  • the child’s environment and safety (in Norwegian)
  • the parents' well-being and mental health (cohabitation)
  • kindergarten


The child's weight and length will be measured. The child’s movement development (fine and gross motor skills) will be observed.
