At Home With Your Newborn

Life with your baby is filled with new concerns and challenges, and at Baptist Health we help you meet them head-on. Find out how you can keep your baby as healthy and happy as possible through breastfeeding support, tips on finding the right pediatrician and more. 

Choosing a pediatrician is an important step for first-time parents. You may choose to seek recommendations from family and friends, or you may want to interview a few pediatricians.

The pediatricians at Baptist Health welcome you to make appointments to ask questions and get to know them prior to making a decision. Read an interview with a Baptist Health pediatrician or our blog on 5 things to consider when choosing a pediatrician for more information.

Baptist Health advocates for breastfeeding as the best feeding method for infants. Our staff is here to make sure you receive education and assistance with breastfeeding your new baby to give you the confidence to care for your baby at home.
