Quick Tips for an Easier Well Baby Check Up ✔️

Keep your calm and your baby will keep theirs.

Today’s 4-month well baby check up took a lot longer than normal. It happened to be the start of the flu season and there were several sick babies in the office today.

How I made our well baby check up easier

In the end, my baby did fine. I made sure I stayed relaxed so he wouldn’t feel my anxious energy. I nursed him a little before the doctor came in so he was satisfied. I made sure he was mostly dressed before the nurse came with the shots. He had on his onesie and jacket. Then I immediately nursed him afterwards. All good!

  • Nurse before the doctor arrives
  • Dress baby mid-way up
  • Nurse again before leaving

It’s been a long morning. Now back to work for me!
