Newborn Care Q&A

What is newborn care?

Newborn care is the care that your baby needs during their first days, weeks, and months of life. Caring for a newborn might be a new experience for you, and you can get all of the answers and direction you need from the team at Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC.

At the same time, their in-office services make sure your baby is healthy and growing.

The team encourages you to come in initially for a prenatal visit during your third trimester of pregnancy. You may bring your other family members in for this visit.

The team gives you a tour of the office and introduces themselves so you can feel confident and comfortable bringing your baby in for their first visit shortly after birth. 

What does newborn care include?

Newborn care includes several specific services for your growing baby. At Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC, you can get the following:

  • Vaccinations
    Vaccinations are preventive shots that protect your baby against certain infectious illnesses. The recommended vaccination schedule starts shortly after birth, and your providers keep your baby on track with all vaccine updates and boosters. 
  • Checkups
    Checkups happen regularly as your baby grows. Your providers make sure your baby is reaching developmental milestones and is growing at a healthy rate. Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC lets you know how frequently and when to schedule these visits. 
  • Sick visits
    Sick visits are available for all ages. If you’re concerned about your newborn’s symptoms, you can schedule a sick visit outside of their regular checkups. 
Which topics can I bring up during newborn care visits?

Newborn care is complex and doesn’t end when you leave the office. There are many topics to consider while caring for your infant, and the Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC team is happy to guide you through specific instructions. You can learn more about: 

  • Diapers and diaper changes.
  • Feeding and Sleeping schedules.
  • Circumcisions and aftercare.
  • Soothing your baby.
  • Bathing your baby.
  • Burping your baby.
  • Swaddling your baby.

Because newborn care visits happen frequently, you have plenty of opportunities to bring up questions and topics as they arise.

Newborn care is essential to starting your child’s life off on the right foot. To book a newborn care appointment, call Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC, or schedule online today.
