Mental Health

Having a newborn in the home is a big change for everyone! We are here to help you sort through information to make the best decisions for your newest addition. We are a phone call away when you have a question or concern, and we will be seeing you often in your baby’s first 18 months of life for well-child visits. It may seem like a lot of visits, but your baby is changing rapidly! Through this time, we follow growth and development closely to help give your baby the best start in life. We use recommended screening tools to identity and address developmental issues quickly, as well as screening for anemia, lead exposure, and dental risk factors. We follow the AAP/CDC guidelines for immunizations, as studies have shown that these are optimal for health and development. 




Here are some common topics that are discussed at well baby visits:


  • Growth

  • Developmental milestones

  • Feeding issues

  • Poop and potty (we’re pediatricians… you can’t scare us with poop talk!)

  • Helping your baby (and you) sleep

  • Post-partum depression

  • Behavior and temper tantrums

  • Bonding with your baby

  • Handling going back to work

  • Reading to your baby

  • Promoting speech development

  • Stranger anxiety

  • Teething and dental care

  • Safety and injury prevention
