Your Newborn Infant

New Infant Babies are a treat for both parents and our office.

After hospital discharge, please call the office to make an appointment for your newborn infant’s weight check and first well-baby visit. The weight check is at day 4-5 of age and then a well visit at two weeks of age.

Well visits are scheduled every six weeks for the first six months, then every three months until the child is eighteen months of age. The next visit will be at two years old and annually thereafter.

Immunizations are given on a regular schedule during this well child period.
