New Babies

Congratulations on your new arrival. The physicians of Commonwealth Pediatrics are here to answer any questions you may have regarding the care and well-being of your newborn. We invite you to download a free copy of our eBook, “Baby Basics – A Guide to Parenting with Confidence.”  No catch—just helpful tips.

If you were seen in the hospital by one of our physicians you will be told on the day your infant leaves the nursery for home when you’ll need to make an appointment for the first visit. Newborns are often seen within the first week of life to check their weight, check for jaundice and address any concerns.
