Newborn Care Q & A

What happens during newborn care visits?

At Comprehensive Pediatrics, newborn care visits include all-encompassing care. Your child’s pediatrician tracks development, performs health screenings, and cares for all health and wellness needs. 

The pediatric care team at Comprehensive Pediatrics also supports parents, including help with circumcision care, umbilical cord care, breastfeeding, sleeping, bathing, and everything else that parents need to do to take care of their new baby. 

Don’t hesitate to ask questions and get expert input from your child’s pediatrician. Parenthood is incredibly rewarding but can be equally confusing, and that’s why newborn care visits at Comprehensive Pediatrics are also about the parents. 

When does my child need to have their first vaccinations?

Generally, the first vaccinations happen at birth. Then, your baby has additional vaccinations at their one, two, four, and six-month visits. But, some children may not have vaccinations at those specific intervals because of health reasons or other circumstances. 

If that’s the case for your baby, the Comprehensive Pediatrics team can work out a catch-up vaccination schedule to make sure they’re protected. 

When does a baby need urgent care from a pediatrician?

If your child has a fever of 100.4°F (under 12 weeks) or 104°F (after 12 weeks), or has physical symptoms like a new rash, vomiting, diarrhea, or any other signs of illness, don't hesitate to reach out to Comprehensive Pediatrics. A member of the experienced team can assess your needs and then schedule a visit for you promptly if necessary. 

Comprehensive Pediatrics is open seven days a week for your convenience, and telehealth appointments are also available for busy parents who need to consult a medical professional right away.
