Your pediatrician will play an important role in keeping your child happy and healthy, and you’ll spend a significant amount of time at their office as your child grows up, including at least six appointments in the first year alone. To find the right pediatrician for both you and your baby, follow the guidelines below.
When your baby is between 4 and 6 months old, he or she should be ready for their first taste of solid food. If you are on the fence about whether you should make baby food at home or buy it, here’s a great article about the pros and cons of both options.
Having a baby is a huge change in any woman’s life. No matter how much you research, no one is 100% prepared for the physical, emotional, and psychological effect it can have on them. At Baptist Health, we want to ensure that postpartum depression (PPD) isn’t shrouded in mystery; after all, it affects up to 15% of new mothers.
Now that it’s actually time to choose a pediatrician, it doesn’t seem like such a small task. Finding the physician who is going to have a relationship with you and your developing baby requires research, planning and an understanding of what you will need from your pediatrician.
It’s no secret that babies have very sensitive skin. Unfortunately, their sensitive skin makes them more prone to rashes. At Baptist Health, we believe that educating parents on symptoms and causes of baby rashes will better equip them to remedy itchy rashes from occurring or spreading further.
Once you have made the decision to introduce a different kind of food to your baby, it’s time to think about the kind of food you will be introducing and the nutritional value of baby food. The age-old question arises: do we feed our baby homemade or store-bought baby food?
Sleep makes up almost 80 percent of a newborn’s first months in the world. Every year in the United States, there are thousands of sleep-related infant deaths. Unfortunately, over half of these were preventable with the appropriate information about safe sleeping.
Your pediatrician should be a partner in your journey of raising a healthy and happy child. That’s exactly what Dr. Vinson is, a partner. From fevers to tantrums to rashes, she’s seen it all and is here to make her patient’s pediatric checkups and appointments run smoothly.
So, you’ve just given birth, and your physician has probably scheduled a postpartum checkup for you. These checkups usually happen 4-6 weeks after delivery, and are meant to be about you. Your physician will want to check on your recovery from the delivery process, physically, mentally and emotionally.
