Well Baby Care Evaluations Q & A

How soon after birth should I schedule a well-baby visit?

Dr. Rubinstein encourages parents to schedule their first well-baby evaluation within five days of your child leaving the hospital. He schedules additional visits for your baby every few weeks for the first couple of months, then monthly until your baby’s first birthday.

What can I expect during a well-baby care evaluation?

During the well-baby evaluation, Dr. Rubinstein starts with your baby’s measurements, including weight and length checks. He also measures the circumference of your baby’s head.

Dr. Rubinstein plots the resulting measurements on a growth chart to evaluate your baby’s growth curve and ensure your baby is growing normally. This chart also offers a comparison to other children at the same age.

A physical exam is also a part of the well-baby visit. Dr. Rubinstein thoroughly examines your baby’s:

  • Ears
  • Eyes
  • Head
  • Mouth
  • Skin
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Abdomen
  • Genitalia

As long as everything looks normal and Dr. Rubinstein has no concerns, additional testing isn’t necessary. If there are concerns, he may order diagnostic blood tests.

How are my baby’s milestones monitored?

Dr. Rubinstein also conducts regular monitoring of your baby’s development through different stages of life. Depending on your child’s age, he may ask specific questions relating to your baby’s:

  • Head control
  • Ability to roll over or sit unsupported
  • Frequency of reaching for objects
  • Ability to make sounds and use facial expressions

Dr. Rubinstein observes your baby and evaluates your answers to each question to ensure your baby is reaching the milestones appropriate for their age.

Will my baby need immunizations?

Dr. Rubinstein offers comprehensive immunizations necessary to ward off serious, contagious illnesses. In your baby’s first few months of life, Dr. Rubinstein administers several immunizations, many requiring multiple doses given at different intervals. These immunizations offer early protection from diseases like:

  • Polio
  • Hepatitis B
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella
  • Diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis

Other immunizations are also available for added protection from conditions like the flu, which can be especially dangerous to newborns and infants.

Dr. Rubinstein gives you the timeline for future immunizations based on your baby’s age and medical needs during your initial well-baby care evaluation.
