Antibiotics are only helpful when your child has a bacterial infection that they can't fight on their own. In fact, your pediatrician rarely prescribes antibiotics for common infections that resolve on their own and never prescribe them for viral or other infections.
Please feel free to ask additional questions if you don’t understand the treatment recommended for your child.
First Keller Healthcare follows the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations for frequency and timing of well-infant and well-child visits.
Generally speaking, visits are recommended at the following ages: newborn, three to five days, one month, two months, four months, six months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, two years, 30 months, and then once per year from age three to 21.
Every parent is different, just as every child is different. Some parents can't stay in the room, and the children do fine. Many parents choose to stay in the room; those children do fine, too. Only you can decide the right fit for your family.
Feel free to email us regarding any scheduling or general questions!
