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.
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.

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

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.
