About Me

A pediatrician typically sees your newborn for his first appointment within a few days of discharge from the hospital. During the first well visit, you will get a chance to meet the pediatrician (if you haven’t already done so), as well as ask questions or address concerns you have about newborn care and your baby. The pediatrician will also perform a physical exam, observe your baby’s development and behavior, and track his growth to ensure he is getting enough to eat at the first well visit and those following.
