Newborn Visit

Welcome to the World!!
 
You should schedule your baby's first appointment within 2 days of discharge from the hospital. Please call our office to schedule a time that is convenient for you and your family. (if your baby was in the NICU for a prolonged period of time, please let the scheduler at our office know).

At this visit we will:

 
  • weigh your infant
  • measure his/her length and head circumference

  • review you baby's prenatal and birth history

  • do a complete physical exam

  • we will discuss feeding, sleeping, development and safety

  • hearing test will be repeated only if your newborn didn't pass this test in the hospital


We will also make sure you know how to find our website goodpediatrics.com, learn how to access our patient portal, as well as CHADIS, our online health and development interactive system.

Lactation

Mom may schedule an appointment with our certified lactation consultant if the infant is having more trouble with breastfeeding than can be addressed in the Normal Newborn visit. Normally, this appointment will take place at our office. However under certain circumstances our lactation consultant will perform a Home Visit for an additional fee.
