Newborn Care Q & A

Is newborn care necessary for healthy infants?

Newborn care is absolutely essential for families and helps ensure your little one is as healthy and happy as possible. These early visits focus on tracking your baby’s development and screening for common childhood illnesses. 

When you rely on a highly skilled pediatrician like Dr. Kar, you can rest assured that your baby is in the best of hands. Newborn care visits are also a chance for you to ask questions and express any concerns you have. Dr. Kar is happy to explore any topic you like during your newborn care appointments. 

What happens during newborn care visits?

The initial portion of the visit includes gathering some basic information about your baby’s health. Expect a quick check of the following:

  • Weight
  • Length
  • Skin condition
  • Reflexes
  • Heart rate
  • Breathing
  • Neurological function
  • Eyesight
  • Hearing

The information compiled during these visits goes into your baby’s personal medical record. Over time, this living document becomes an invaluable resource in tracking your little one’s health and development. 

Next, Dr. Kar asks you about any changes you’ve noticed since your last visit or areas of concern. Feel free to explore issues like feeding and sleep schedules, babyproofing, and more. 

If your baby needs vaccines, those are administered during your newborn care visits. Every effort is made to make immunization as comfortable as possible, and little ones are quickly soothed after having their shots. 

How can I make the most of my newborn care visits?

The best way to get the most out of your visits is to write down any questions you have. It’s easy to get distracted by your baby and the events of newborn care visits and forget to ask for more information about specific topics. You might also want to be prepared to write down any details shared during the visit. 

Newborn care visits also celebrate your baby’s milestones. Dr. Kar and his team love working with new parents and enjoy time spent with the smallest members of the Kar’s Pediatrics family.
