Also the pediatrician performs reflex evaluation, controls the dynamics of newborn’s growth and weight gain. It is essential to make timely vaccinations and tests, if the doctor deems it necessary.
During the first year of child’s life, you should visit doctor every month. The doctor will provide you with recommendations on feeding and immune system reinforcement, general development; refer to specialists, when necessary (neurologist, surgeon, etc.), as well as routine vaccinations.
Hereinafter, the pediatrician is needed for individual consultations (for instance, in case of disease) and routine vaccinations.
