What can I expect during a newborn check-up?
During your baby’s first post-hospital evaluation, the Celebration Pediatrics team reviews your baby’s medical information and details about your pregnancy and delivery.
As part of a comprehensive check-up, you can expect the team to physically examine your baby and note important information about their:
- Skin health
- Body temperature
- Head circumference
The team also evaluates how well your baby’s umbilical cord is healing and that the area is free of infection. Your baby can also receive essential vaccinations to protect from serious contagious diseases like mumps, measles, and whooping cough.
Our team will create a timeline for additional check-ups every few months to closely monitor your baby’s growth and development until your child reaches age two when they begin annual wellness checks.
You can also contact the office if your newborn has a fever or other symptoms that need medical attention.
