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.
At Baptist Health, we want you to know that your pediatrician is your partner in the well-being and healthcare of your baby. Since you know your child best, pediatricians rely on your observations and questions to understand when your baby needs help and how they are developing.
