Newborns should be seen at 2-5 days old or as directed by the hospital pediatrician.
What To Bring
Please bring a copy of the babies’ discharge summary from the hospital so we can follow up on any issues from the birth or monitor your child’s progress after leaving the hospital. We’ll check weight, make sure feeding is on track, check for jaundice, do a thorough exam, and answer the many questions that newborns bring.
There is nothing more special or beautiful than adding a new family member. We understand that everyone wants a pediatrician who listens, hears your concerns, and answers your questions.
With that in mind, we at Child Plus will always take the time necessary to answer all of your questions. We want you to leave our offices confident in your mission of raising a strong and healthy child.
We look forward to seeing you here soon. Putting your child first at Child Plus Pediatrics. Our family caring for yours.
We love to see expectant mothers for a prenatal consultation. You don’t have to have one, but if you would like to have a short consultation with Dr. Davis prior to delivery, just call us to work out a time to come by for a chat. We ordinarily do these during the lunch hour or early on Wednesday afternoons, but if that doesn’t work for you, it may be possible to arrange another time.
Easy Transition To Child Plus
When you go to the hospital and are registering, notify them that Dr. Davis is your pediatrician and ask the hospital to send a copy of the discharge summary to Child Plus so we can pick up the care at your first newborn visit.
Each Pregnancy Is Unique
Medical conditions of the parents are an important consideration, and Dr. Davis appreciates having that information so he can advise you of care considerations. For example, gestational diabetes, special medications you take, genetic conditions, hypertension or certain infectious diseases may have an effect on your unborn child. While your obstetrician will carefully monitor and treat you, it’s important for your pediatrician to know your family history.
Peace Of Mind
Having peace of mind before your child’s birth can make the experience more rewarding for you and become the start of an ongoing relationship in assuring your child’s best growth and development in the years ahead.
We look forward to caring for you and your child for many years to come. Child Plus Pediatrics. Our family caring for yours.
