Newborn Care

Congratulations on your new bundle of joy!! Our team at Celebration Pediatrics provides comprehensive care for newborns soon after birth, starting with the first check-up after discharge from the hospital. You should call our office within 24-48 hours of being discharged from the hospital.
 
If you were unable to join us for one of our Meet n’ Greet sessions before delivery, do not worry. Our team of board-certified pediatricians is thrilled to meet you and your newborn. We will ensure you have the support you need to navigate this incredible adventure with your newborn.

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:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Skin health
  • Movements
  • 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.
