Here are some 2-year-old check-up questions to ask your paediatrician at the 24- to 36-month stage in your toddler’s development.
As your toddler grows, each development brings new questions and curiosities. We’ve compiled a list of commonly asked questions in a 2-year-old check-up questionnaire you might want to consult before you see your paediatrician.

Other Toddler Matters:
Their 24-month check-up might be a good time to ask about personality questions or persistent problems you’ve noticed with your toddler. Or if you want to ask advice on a range of other parenting topics. For instance:
- Your child’s personality—if your child’s overly clingy or hyperactive
- Persistent problems, such as if your toddler awakens during the night or is excessively fearful
- Concerns about discipline and tactics to try, such as time-out or logical consequences
- Advice on getting your child ready for a new sibling
- Advice about getting ready to start day-care or preschool
These, of course, are just a few questions that might be on your mind. If you have other concerns, make sure to write them down, so you don’t forget to ask.
