Question: When should I schedule my baby’s first check-up?
In the whirlwind 3 days between having my baby and getting home, I lost track of a lot information. When should I schedule my baby’s first check-up with out pediatrician?
Answer from Dr. Whitcomb
You should visit your health care provider two weeks after delivery. Your baby will be checked to make sure he or she is gaining weight and check for any concerns that may have come up since delivery.
Most doctors ask to see the baby again at 2 months to begin routine immunizaitons.
