Why is newborn care so important?

Working with a skilled practitioner is an important part of making sure you have a happy and healthy baby. Newborn care visits are an opportunity for your provider to assess your baby’s health and development, and identify areas of concern as early as possible. 


These visits are also an opportunity for you to receive the information needed to create a nurturing environment for your new baby, and to provide outstanding home care. No matter if this is your first baby or your fourth, the experience is different every time. 


The best time to set up your newborn care visits is before you even give birth. Come in and meet with the team at Guardian Angels Health Center to learn more about the practice and what the team has to offer. You can become familiar with the office and your child’s provider even before you welcome your little one into the world. 

What happens during newborn care visits?


The initial portion of the visit focuses on collecting information about your baby’s development. Infants grow and change very quickly, and newborn care visits allow your child’s provider to track those changes and compare them to data collected from many other children who are the same age and sex as your baby. 


This comparison is a great way to identify developmental delays that might be an indication of a serious health condition. Early detection empowers you to take action as quickly as possible, or learn how to shape your household and parenting approach to meet any special needs. 


Babies need quite a few vaccines to develop a strong and resilient immune system. Your child’s provider advises you on the vaccine schedule and what to expect. 


Next, your child’s provider allows some time to ask questions. This is the perfect time to express any concerns about your baby’s health and well-being. 

What kinds of topics can be covered during newborn care visits?


At Guardian Angels Health Center, friendly providers encourage you to inquire about any topic during newborn care visits. You can also bring in a list of questions and concerns, and there is never any pressure to rush through your visit. 


Some of the issues new parents often discuss during newborn care visits include:


  • Growth and development
  • Child safety concerns 
  • Crib safety
  • Sleep schedules and habits
  • Bathing and hygiene
  • Childproofing
  • Postnatal depression
  • Breastfeeding challenges
  • How to introduce solid foods
  • Skin care


At newborn care visits, it’s the best time to learn how to take care of your little one, so don’t hesitate to ask anything you’d like.
