Helpful information from Texas Health Resources for new moms and dads on caring for their newborn baby after returning home from the hospital.
We're going to share with you some important information to help you adjust to changing priorities and demands on your time.
Let's get started as you and your newborn really get to know each other and establish a routine.
The information here is general in nature and not a substitute for the advice and medical care from your healthcare professional. If your Pediatrician recommends different instructions that are specific for your baby, please follow his or her advice.
Your baby's follow-up appointment with the Pediatrician usually comes 2-14 days after your discharge from the hospital depending on how long you've been in the hospital, your baby's weight and other factors. At that time, your Pediatrician will track your baby's growth and development along with weight gain, jaundice, and feedings.
