14 Reasons to Call Your Newborn’s Doctor
As a new parent, bringing home a newborn is one of the most exciting moments in your life. But it’s also exhausting. There is so much to remember and you’re likely to be joyously sleep-deprived on top of it all.
Fortunately, there is no shortage of parenting advice out there to help you along the way. One of the most important things to have at your fingertips is symptoms that should prompt a call to your baby’s doctor. Newborns have a different set of standards from big kids, because they are still adjusting to living outside of the womb. And they’re also more vulnerable to common illnesses.
I recommend bookmarking, sharing, or saving this list of symptoms, that way you can access it when you need it.
The last point is an important one – please call your doctor if you have any worries or concerns! Even though your mommy instinct is new, it is real. Your doctor will not mind answering your questions or evaluating your newborn for peace of mind.
