Newborn Check Q & A

Advanced Pediatrics Medical Group

Why are newborn checkups important?

Newborn checks allow Dr. Sadrieh and Dr. Hussain to monitor the health and weight of your baby, ensuring they’re healthy and reaching developmental milestones without any issues.

When should I take my baby for a newborn checkup?

The first 24 months of your baby’s life are critical for development. The general checkup timeline for your baby is at birth, 3-5 days after birth, and then every few months until they reach 24 months of age. But checkups aren’t only for sick babies.

Healthy babies should also be seen regularly by Dr. Sadrieh and Dr. Hussain. The point of the checkups is to make sure your baby is healthy. If your newborn show signs of illness, treatment can start early before the illness worsens.

What happens during a newborn checkup visit?

Dr. Sadrieh and Dr. Hussain give your newborn an ordinary exam to evaluate their health and identify any concerns that could limit your baby’s development. The exam requires assessing your baby’s skin tone, alertness, and reflexes.

They also measure your baby’s height, weight, and head circumference. When you have the results, you can see how your baby’s growth compares to other babies in the same age range.

During additional checkups, Dr. Sadrieh and Dr. Hussain observe your baby’s behavior and ask questions about their development, such as if they’re sitting up or rolling over at the appropriate age for these milestones. If you have any concerns, let them know during the appointment.

What support is offered for parents of newborns?

Adjusting to a newborn can feel overwhelming, especially to first-time parents. That’s why Dr. Sadrieh and Dr. Hussain offer insight regarding proper development, growth, and nutrition for newborns. Whether you have questions about breastfeeding, adequate sleep schedules, or you want to confirm whether the latest baby trends are safe, they provide answers you can trust based on their decades of experience.

Ensure your bundle of joy is happy, healthy, and developing as expected by scheduling regular newborn checkups with Dr. Sadrieh and Dr. Hussain at Advanced Pediatrics Medical Group. Call the practice or schedule your appointment through our convenient online system today.
