In 2016, over 382,000 births were recorded in Poland . Research shows that two thirds of parents feed their children the wrong diet and expand their children’s diet too quickly . The knowledge on how to take proper care of infants is still insufficient, which increases the risk of disease in later years. That is why regular medical check-ups for a newborn baby are so important to ensure that his health and development are constantly assessed. Constant paediatric care also enables parents to deepen their knowledge about the best ways to take care of their child's health.
The first 24 months - key period in a child’s development
The first year in a child's life is referred to as infancy. During this time, the child's body experiences very intense and rapid changes. The infant develops physically, mentally and emotionally. - Any abnormalities occurring during the first 24 months of the child's life are reflected in later years in the form of developmental disorders

Comprehensive childcare is essential
Comprehensive baby healthcare services in one package
We realise that getting to a doctor can sometimes be difficult for parents who are at home with their baby. They may also not be sure if their child’s symptoms are something they should be concerned about, and what they should do in a particular case. In such situations, it is important to remember that Medicover allows you to obtain medical advice without having to come in for a visit. Medical consultations are also provided through telephone, chat or video conferencing,
