Caring for your child will naturally be one of your biggest concerns. There are more tips on immunization and care in the first year in subsequent chapters, but right now let us talk a little about how you can choose a good paediatrician for your baby. Here is what to look out for when choosing your paediatrician:
Find a doctor who has a nice personality and communication style. Finding a doctor that is patient and listens to all your concerns is very important. Try and start the search for selecting your paediatrician ahead of your baby’s birth.
Ensure that that paediatrician’s office has a good staff – remember that your baby will spend time with nurses, medical assistants, and other support staff. When going to the office see how the place is – the atmosphere and way staff dress can be indicators of the type of place it is.
