*Survey Question:
46. How many times has your baby been to a doctor or nurse for a routine well baby check-up? Don't
your baby for care when he or she was sick. It may help to use the calendar (Data recoded).

Percents based on fewer than 50 total respondents may not be reliable.
Interpret these percentages with caution. C.I. = confidence interval.
