Newborn Care

Congratulations on the birth of your baby!

The next few months will be an exciting time for you, and as parents, concerns regarding nutrition and care of your baby are common. We will be available to answer any questions you may have about your baby.

As your baby’s physician, we feel it is our obligation to share important information with you regarding infant nutrition. You should know that nutrition will never be more important than in your baby’s first year. What you feed your baby during infancy will be the foundation for your child’s growth and development.

We hope that you have decided to breast feed your baby. Breast – feeding gives the optimum nutrition your baby will need. If you cannot, for some reason, or have decided not to breast-feed we will recommend a formula that best meets your baby’s nutritional needs.

Again, congratulations on your new family addition. We are looking forward to caring for your new baby. Remember, never will nutrition be more important that in the first year.

Great amount of time and energy is spent on parent and child education towards planning and implementing a balance and wholesome nutrition, not only for fitness and growth and avoiding weight issues, but in order to fight constipation, food aversion, abdominal pains and reflux to name a few. Poor diets lead to problems like nocturnal cough, prolonged colds, bad breath, dental cavities, poor night time sleep, snoring, mood swings and hence affected performance at school. All these are addressed in detail during routine checkups or when children present with these problems.
