Providing Quality Care for Your Newest Family Member
Congratulations on your new baby! LYNK Pediatrics is your best choice for your infant’s ongoing medical care. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your child get checkups about a week after birth and then at 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, and 24 months.
About a Few Days After Birth, 2 Weeks, Some of the Things That Happen at Appointments:
During the first visit after your discharge from the hospital we will check the baby for weight loss, feeding issues and possible jaundice. These usually start to show up day 3-5.
We discuss feeding as our clinic believes that breast is BEST. But we will exhaust options before we start talking about formula. But there may be times where formula is warranted to not have a dehydrated baby.
We are equipped in adequately weighing, and comparing weights to make sure your baby is getting enough nutrients. We have a group of lactation consultants that can see families if the hospital setting isn’t for you. We have lactation consultants that we can refer you to.
We also are contracted with a bilirubin blanket company to ease phototherapy treatments to be done at home rather than back at the hospital, and make readmissions very very rare should the baby become jaundiced.
Second Newborn Care
We also take care of the second newborn screen, to be done in the office and we call you with results whether it is normal or abnormal.
