Overview

The first year with a baby is chock full of wellness visits. What can parents expect at each one? What will the pediatrician be looking for during examinations? What should parents ask? What information should they share about their baby's feeding schedule, sleep habits, and so on? Dr. Peter L. Richel demystifies these well visits and prepares parents for each one by covering the examination details, growth and developmental milestones, recommended vaccinations, and issues that may crop up at different ages and stages.Happy & Healthy also includes information about common newborn infections, the signs and symptoms of minor versus major illnesses, what to expect during a visit to the emergency room—including common tests and procedures—and how to prepare for a hospital stay. Each well visit chapter includes a write-in space for parents to record changes in their baby's height and weight, as well as notes from the visit. The logs at the end of the book enable parents to keep a handy record of such information as immunizations, test records, allergies and sensitivities, illnesses, and important contact information.
