Well Visit

NEWBORN VISIT

Congratulations on your newborn baby! We are here to help walk you through this journey of parenthood. At your first visit, we will discuss adjustments to make in order to comfort your new baby. We will help you implement routines for feeding, sleeping and playing daily.
At Comprehensive Pediatrics’ your baby will receive a thorough newborn physical exam. We will discuss, in length, caring for and protecting your baby, as well as safety measures.

 

ONE MONTH VISIT

At your appointment, we introduce tummy time and show you how your baby’s weight, length, and head are tracking along their percentiles. We will also address any concerns you have about your baby and discuss feeding intake.

6 WEEK VISIT

You and your baby have reached the 6 week mark. Hooray ! Every baby grows and develops at their own rate, but by 6 weeks old, most babies should be gaining weight (about 4 Ibs since birth) and begin to self soothe. Cognitive functions begin to form at this age allowing the baby to start smiling socially.

 

TWO MONT VISIT

By two months of age your baby should begin to respond to sounds, be able to hold head upright for short periods of time, lift head and begin to push up when laying down/face downwards and starting to coo in attempt to talk.

THREE MONTH VISIT

So much has happened in so little time! Your baby has gotten a whole lot bigger. As their vision improves, they begin to focus on nearby objects. Newborns especially love black, red, and big squares or polka dots.

FOUR MONTH VISIT

By now, your baby is probably smiling at you and expecting you to smile back. This is a proud visit as your child continues to amaze you with new developmental achievements. We will continue to discuss ways to stimulate your baby’s continued development. We will also develop a strategy to help you raise a healthy eater and sleeper.

FIVE MONTH VISIT

“Peek-a-boo, I see you!” Get ready to play this classic and other hide-and-seek games as your baby starts to catch on to the fun.
