After the baby is born, the next visit should be no more than 5 days after delivery.
Going home with a new baby is exciting, but it can be scary, too. Newborns have many needs, like frequent feedings and diaper changes. Babies can have health issues that are different from older children and adults, like diaper rash and cradle cap.
Your baby will go through many changes during the first year of life. You may feel uneasy at first. Ask your health care provider for help if you need it.
