Progressive Newborn Care
Whether you’re pregnant for the first time or expecting the latest addition to your family, this is an incredibly special time in your life. It’s a time when you need the best possible baby care for you and your newborn. Even women with high-risk pregnancies (there are many more of these than you think) are in good hands at Progressive Pediatrics.
New moms really love us. That’s because we are all experienced board-certified pediatricians and moms ourselves. We’ve been there and probably done that. That’s why we offer such special baby care and treatment for newborn babies and new moms alike.
We believe in the power of good communication at Progressive Pediatrics in Union City and Bayonne, NJ. Our doctors and staff speak English, Spanish, Arabic and Filipino. We always answer your questions and explain treatments and conditions in language you'll understand. And, perhaps best of all, we all love babies and helping new moms get the most from their newborn care experiences.
You should know that newborns typically remain in the hospital for 2 to 3 days. We perform the initial evaluation in the hospital for weight gain and skin color – to screen for jaundice. We will discuss nutrition for your baby – and whether to use breast or bottle feeding. Our follow-up preventive care includes measuring the baby's head size, height and weight and discussing vaccines with you.
