When it comes to getting the most value from your pediatrician and pediatric team, keep the following three helpful tips in mind.
Find your pediatrician sooner rather than later. A child’s first checkup comes right after they are born, so take some time during pregnancy to research doctors near you and choose one that meets your family’s needs. When considering your options, you may want to choose a pediatrician who practices at the hospital where your baby will be born.
Also, when moving, don’t forget to find a new pediatrician for your family prior to moving or just after your move. Moving to a new place can be a stressful event; however, it can bring you ease knowing who to call should any health issues arise.
Choose the right pediatrician for you. You will see your pediatrician in both moments of happiness and times of concern, which is why it is important to choose one with whom you feel comfortable and one that is conveniently accessible to both you and your child. When choosing a pediatrician, ask for recommendations from friends, check review sites, and ask questions to ensure your doctor is a good partner for your family.
Visit your pediatrician on a periodic basis. One of the services your pediatrician will provide is regular checkups as your child grows and develops. These checkups will include basic tests to ensure your child is meeting appropriate growth and development milestones.
These checkups are most frequent in babies and younger children, and decrease as kids get older. It can be tempting to stop taking your kids to the doctor once they are older, but it is important for them to be seen annually to address issues and to stay on top of immunizations.
