Parenting Tips for Your 1 Month Old Baby
Be sure your baby has the second newborn screening test. The first test was given in the hospital before your baby came home. The second test is done at the first well baby checkup, usually at 1 to 2 weeks of age.
If you aren’t sure whether the second newborn screening test has been given, please check right away. Then, if the test has not been given, call your clinic or doctor and make arrangements to get it done as soon as possible.
Regular checkups are important.
Newborn screenings are important because they can detect problems, many of which can be corrected if found early.
It is also a good idea at this time to ask about immunizations for your baby, which should start at 1 to 2 months old. To see an immunization chart, go to the official Web site for immunizations.
