Newborn Care Q & A

What is newborn care?

The newborn care offered at Wellspring Family Medicine is tailored to your needs. It includes the medical support you need to ensure your newborn grows healthily and develops normally in those important first months. 

It also helps you get peace of mind. When you have their caring, committed team behind you, you gain the advice and guidance of experts. Any questions you have about caring for your newborn don’t have to be answered with an internet search or a dive into the glossary section of your parenting books. 

You can ask the health care providers who know both you and your newborn so you get the right recommendations and support for your family. 

How do I get ready to bring my newborn home?

If you or your partner are still pregnant and you’re preparing your home for your baby, you’ve probably already put in a fair amount of work. You’ve built a crib and baby-proofed the hazards in your home. 

You’ve probably thought about the new items you might need, like changing mats, bottles, and blankets. You’re well on your way to being ready to bring your newborn home. 

But all that preparation can still feel like it wasn’t enough when you finally get your little one home with you. It’s normal to feel nervous about any little abnormality you observe. 

That’s why the Wellspring Family Medicine team works with you before and immediately after you give birth to know what to expect. 

They teach you about the warning signs to look out for — like signs of dehydration or jaundice — while letting you know that certain mannerisms are completely normal. In short, they’re here to help you feel as prepared as possible. And when questions inevitably arise once you’re home with your newborn, they’re always just a call away. 

How do I keep my newborn healthy?

Although they’re a lot of work, newborns are fairly straightforward. They essentially just need to be fed, changed, and put to bed. 

As they grow, their needs change. How do you ensure they’re developing and growing as healthily as possible? The dedicated pediatrics team at Wellspring Family Medicine helps. They seamlessly transition your child from newborn to pediatric care so you can rest easy knowing your child is getting the medical attention and care they need when they need it. Additionally, they offer vaccines from infancy to college to help protect your child’s health.
