Before baby’s appointment

  • Make sure to bring any medical records from the hospital for the pediatrician to review.
  • Write down questions you have for the doctor.
  • Pack distractions like toys and snacks in case your baby gets fussy.

At the appointment

  • Dress baby in easy-to-change clothes.
  • Let the doctor know about any changes or concerns you may have.
