Baby Well-Child Check-ups
A baby’s first year is a critical stage for growth and development. There are many health related concerns that may arise during an infant’s first year. As a primary healthcare provider, Naturopathic Doctors are trained with the knowledge and skills in performing physical exams and can help assess your baby every 2-4 months from 1 month to 36 months of age. Our goal is to ensure your baby is reaching all their development milestones and provide the necessary resources.
During these visits we will address the following:
- Breastfeeding (milk supply, latch and schedules)
- Colds and flu
- Ear Infections
- Food introduction schedule and timing
- Allergy prevention
- Sleep issues
- Growth and developmental milestones
If you're baby is suffering from any of the above concerns please bring them in for an initial consultation.
Support for moms
There is no way to predict the impact a new baby will have in your life. First time moms often want to do everything right which can be very tough. While sleeplessness can be enough to shift our emotional state, if you are experiencing loss of appetite, insomnia, intense anger, severe mood swings, feelings of guilt or shame, you may be suffering from postpartum depression. Please don't be afraid to ask for help.
