If you are an expectant parent, you’ve probably gone to multiple prenatal visits with your OBGYN. Once you are in your third trimester, it’s time to schedule another kind of prenatal appointment, the one with your child’s future pediatrician. Fill out the form below to request an appointment.
Finding the right pediatrician can be a difficult task to take on, especially as a new parent. You want to feel comfortable with your pediatrician so that you can ask all the questions you want without feeling like a nuisance. As a mother, Dr. Mandal is not only dedicated to children’s health and development but she is also dedicated to helping parents have the education and understanding they need to feel confident in supporting their child’s health.
Our pediatricians are here to help you determine healthy lifestyles for your child, offer advice for preventing illnesses and injuries, and guide you in providing the correct care for your child’s development.
Dr. Mandal recognizes that parents know their child the best, so it is essential to allow time for questions or to discuss concerns during appointments. During the first several wellness check-ups, Dr. Mandal often addresses your newborn’s sleep patterns, feeding issues, and safety concerns such as car seats, sleep positions, and SIDS.
If you have any specific questions about parenting or your child, this is a great time to ask. This is the perfect time to discuss family preferences on things like feeding the baby (breastfeeding or formula?) and vaccinations. Often parents have questions ready that are specific to their family’s situation.
