Schedule your baby’s newborn checkup.

If you didn’t already schedule your baby’s newborn checkup before you left the hospital, now is the time. It’s essential to stay on schedule to make sure your baby is growing healthy and strong.

Follow your doctor’s recommended vaccination schedule.

Vaccines are necessary to protect your baby from common sicknesses and health risks. Consult your pediatrician to learn about the recommended schedule to keep your baby healthy.

Insist on handwashing

Newborns are particularly susceptible to germs. It’s important to tell anyone who wants to hold your baby to wash their hands first.

Breastfeed if you can.

Breastfeeding reduces your baby’s risk of ear infections, breathing problems, obesity, and more. It also helps you lose your baby weight faster. Not to mention, it’s free. Click here to find answers to all your breastfeeding questions.
