Newborn Care Q & A

What’s involved in newborn care?

You will learn how to care for your newborn at the hospital, and the Oak Park Pediatrics team will build on that knowledge. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, including topics such as feeding, swaddling, colic, bathing, nail care, and sleep.  

The Oak Park Pediatrics staff will help you properly care for your baby’s umbilical cord. If your son had a circumcision, your pediatrician will monitor how the penis is healing.

The Oak Park Pediatrics staff is available to ease your fears and help you stay confident in your role as a parent.

What can I expect during my first newborn visit?

The first “newborn visit” to Oak Park Pediatrics is typically 2-3 days after discharge from the hospital. This initial visit is a great time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your newborn. 

During this visit, the medical team will review your baby’s health history and your personal medical history. Next, your pediatrician will discuss any questions you may have about your newborn. 

Your pediatrician will ask questions about breastfeeding, your baby’s eating and sleeping habits, as well as ask about her bowel and urinary patterns. Initial newborn care visits will also help your Oak Park Pediatrics provider to identify potential issues, such as fever, infection, jaundice, weight changes, and rash. 

Please call the office at your convenience to schedule your child’s initial newborn visit. We look forward to meeting you!
