28: What to Expect When You're Expecting: Your Top Questions for a Pediatrician
Aug 05, 2020
Dr. Mona Amin

Being a new parent is an amazing experience.

One filled with a lot of joy, some worry, and a whole lot of questions.

On this episode, I'm happy to welcome one of my followers from my Instagram @pedsdoctalk. She was 33 weeks pregnant with her first child at the time of the recording and she had a list of questions in regards of what to expect as a new parent. 

  • How do we find a Pediatrician? 
  • How long does baby stay in the hospital?
  • Who examines baby in the hospital?
  • What tests are done in the hospital?
  • What about circumcisions?
  • How to care for the umbilical cord postpartum?
  • What about breastfeeding tips?
  • What about formula?
  • Can we introduce pacifiers?
  • What about screen-time?

We also spend the last portion of the episode discussing COVID, so if you are listening to this episode AFTER the COVID-19 pandemic, you can just stop it before that portion.

If you haven't already, listen to episodes 4 and 6 of the podcast which can be helpful to new parents as well. 

As always, make sure to follow me @pedsdoctalk to continue the conversation.
