When to have first ped visit after HB? - Page 2

post #21 of 23
I did not have a homebirth, but was at a free standing birthing center.
Our family doctor wanted to see the baby right away, but I couldn't get around due to heavy bleeding after the delivery.
We went the next week instead.

We brought DD to our FP three days after birth. It was my choice b/c the next available slot was a week from then. I wanted a check before 1 week for records. And we were driving down there to see the ILs anyways (he's about 2 blocks away).



It was nice, but overall useless other than having a paper trail. We went a couple more times and then never bothered after that.

I got fed up w/DD#1's ped, so we switched to my family doctor (D.O.) for both of us. I plan on taking baby #2 there when I want to get their first vaccine(s), which I haven't quite decided on (need to re-read the Vaccine Book). It won't be in the first few weeks, though, that is for sure.
