Newborn Care Q&A

What is newborn care?

Newborn care is a branch of pediatrics that provides complete care for infants. Regular well checks present an opportunity to ask questions, discuss unusual symptoms, and make sure your child achieves all of their developmental milestones.

Enrolling your child in the newborn care program at Bubbles Pediatrics LLC is an investment in their future. It can reduce the risk of acute and chronic illnesses, educate you and your partner on the importance of healthy living, and provide the tools needed for your child to live an active and vibrant life.

What happens during a newborn care appointment?

At Bubbles Pediatrics LLC, a newborn care appointment begins with your child’s pediatrician measuring their weight, height, and head circumference. Afterward, they conduct a comprehensive physical.

During the exam, your child’s pediatrician examines your baby’s eyes, ears, and mouth, checks their reflexes, and examines their skin. They may also administer a hepatitis B vaccine at the first appointment if your baby didn’t get it at the hospital. 

What are some important aspects of newborn care?

Bubbles Pediatrics LLC uses newborn care to ensure your child thrives and reaches their developmental milestones. To do that, the pediatricians focus on three areas:

Feeding

For your baby to grow and thrive, it needs to eat at regular intervals. Your child’s pediatrician can help make sure your baby eats enough and that it’s getting the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs. They can even help you determine if you should breastfeed, formula feed, or try a combination of both.

Sleep

Many newborns fuss and cry throughout the night. Your child’s pediatrician can provide tips and tricks to help your baby sleep soundly. They can even make recommendations to reduce the risk of potentially serious sleep-related conditions, like sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and suffocation. 

Communication

Newborn babies cry to communicate, but it can be stressful trying to figure out what your little one wants to say. During your newborn care appointment, your child’s pediatrician can teach you how to identify certain cues, ensuring your baby has everything it needs. 

New parent counseling

At Bubbles Pediatrics LLC, newborn care includes new parent counseling. The pediatricians love educating new parents on things like the importance of childhood nutrition, common medical conditions that affect children, and how to keep your kids safe.
