Taking your new baby to the doctor requires some preparation, even if it is only a check-up appointment.  Here are a few tips to ensure that your baby’s doctor appointments go smoothly.

    Paediatricians ask that parents keep track of their baby’s sleeping and eating habits ahead of each visit. The doctor will ask you about physical and mental changes in the child’s life, and ask parents to be prepared to provide an accurate overview.  Questions will also be asked about the baby’s ability to walk or talk.

    Many doctors will also tell you that gathering immediate evidence of a rash or some symptom of a condition, will likely help diagnose the most accurate treatment.  Smartphones are now very common among thousands of families, which can immediately capture photographic proof of a condition.  Families can also download a checklist app to their smartphones to synchronize important dates and alerts during a pregnancy, as well as for paediatrician appointments.

    In the days leading up to your appointment, be sure to compile a list of questions.  Children who may be developing slowly or are experiencing eating problems will require more time at the paediatrician’s office, and parents should ask for the extended appointment.  Also, remember to bring a pen and paper, or use your smartphone to take notes of the paediatrician’s suggestions.  This way, you will remember to keep a close eye on your baby’s development to make the next appointment even smoother.
