1 Year Review

Your child will have changed a lot  since the last developmental review. For the one year review we will send you a questionnaire so that you can tell us what your child can do. This makes sure you get the individual support, advice and reassurance that you need. 

The questionnaire will ask if you have any worries about your child's health or behaviour. You might want to tell us more about your baby’s development or you might want support and advice on any parenting challenges you might have. 

Some of the things that we can offer support with are;

  • Your family’s health – eating better, being active, making positive changes.
  • Your child’s physical health and wellbeing – growth, hearing & vision & immunisations.
  • How you can encourage your child’s development so they reach their full potential.
  • Any behaviour challenges – sleeping, eating, being apart from you.
  • Relationships – between you and your child and other important people in your lives.
  • Keeping safe – at home and out and about.



  • Looking after yourself is important for you and for your family. Modern life brings a lot of pressures on relationships, mental health and finances. We want to be able to help you with any problems you might have and will ask how things are going.

    You might be keen to make healthy lifestyle changes for you and your family. Maybe you want to eat better, stop smoking or be more active  – we can support you to take the first steps to make a change.

  • Once children's baby teeth start coming through it is time to start brushing them! Dentists like to meet your baby and see their teeth around now if they have not already had an appointment. You can find out when to expect teeth to come through, tips on teething and choosing toothpaste *here*.


  • All babies are different and your child will be developing at their own pace. You can really help your child’s progress. Spending with you talking and playing is the most important way to encourage them to try new things and learn new skills.

    You can find out about toddlers development on the developmental milestones page *here*.

  • If your child has a dummy now is a good time to work on getting rid of it. This is because it can;

    • Slow down speech and language development.
    • Affect how the teeth grow.

    Some tips for stopping dummy use are:

    • Choose a good time when your child is well and not facing other changes like starting nursery.
    • When your child is upset spend time comforting them and working out why.
    • Keep the dummy just for bedtimes.
    • If your child does have their dummy in and tries to talk to you, ask them to take it out to speak.

    Sometimes babies can get comfort from another item like a teddy or blanket instead of a dummy.

    Once you have decided to stop using the dummy keep going. Comfort your baby when they miss their dummy, it can take a bit of time to adjust.

    Check you have removed all the dummies in the house so your baby doesn’t ‘find’ one.

  • If your child is having less than 500ml of formula milk each day we recommend giving your child vitamin supplements. This is because in formula has added vitamins, if they have less than this your child should take a multi-vitamin instead. Ask your pharmacist’s advice on suitable vitamins. You might be eligible for free Healthy Start vitamins; you can find out more *here*.

  • Getting your baby weighed and measured and recording it in the red book around now is a good idea. Look at our information on how to self-weigh and record it *here*.

  • As your child is starting to get bigger and more active it is important your home is safe for them. There is lots of information on how to look for dangers in the home and make it safer *here*.

  • We want to make sure our services for Norfolk families are the best they can be – we are always pleased to hear your thoughts on what we are doing well and what we could do better.

    Video appointments are new, so we would love to hear from you about how your appointment went. *Click Here* to let us know.
