Importance of the 5 Week Pediatric Visit

Here is what you can expect for your baby's 5 week checkup:

Check that baby's umbilical cord stump has fallen off, and that baby's belly button is healing properly
Examine your baby boy's penis if he was circumcised
Give your baby a hepatitis B vaccine (The shot is usually given in the hospital at 2 days and then at 1 month and 6 months of age. Some pediatricians give it at birth, then at 2 and 6 months.)
Check your baby's weight and height and get details about the feeding schedule
