So, you went to the hospital and have now returned with a brand new addition to your family! Congratulations! Very soon you will need to go visit the pediatrician - below is important information as well as some tips that can help with your first visit.
When should the first pediatrician visit occur?
Most parents pick a pediatrician before they have their baby. This may be the physician for older children in your family, or you may find this person through family or friend referral, or even the Pediatrician you were “assigned” and grew to love in the hospital. Even if you’ve met and “interviewed” this person, the first visit can be a little nerve-wracking.
