Steal Your Kid's Healthiest Habits

Get regular checkups.

If you have a baby or a toddler, your pediatrician's office probably feels like your second home. But when's the last time you got a checkup? That's if you even have a primary-care doctor: Many women between the ages of 25 and 40 don't, but they should have both a primary-care physician and an ob-gyn. The American Medical Association recommends that healthy women between the ages of 18 and 39 get a physical at least every three years, a pelvic and breast exam every year, and an eye exam every one to two years.
