How Do I Choose A Doctor For My Baby?

You can choose a pediatrician (a doctor who is specially trained to care for children) or a family practice doctor. Start by checking which doctors are on your insurance list. Whichever doctor you choose, ask about:

  • his or her philosophy on breastfeeding, discipline and parenting
  • how to contact him or her in the middle of the night
  • whether the office has sick/well waiting areas or sick/well hours

Prenatal interviews are important!The doctor you choose is the person to whom you are entrusting your child's health care.
Get started early - you should choose a doctor for your baby by the 36th week of your pregnancy.
