for the little bundles of joy
Your baby’s first doctor’s visit occurs during his or her first week of life, usually 1-2 days after you are discharged from the hospital.
During your baby’s first visit, the doctor will discuss your labor and delivery and any complications you experienced. They also enter medical information about your health and your family’s health history. At this visit, we:
- Check your baby’s weight
- Monitor for signs of jaundice
- Check to see how your baby is feeding
- Answer questions about your new baby
- Check pulse, respiration, and temperature.
- Give Immunizations if not given at the hospital
