6-8 Week Examination

6-8 Week Examination

At the 6-8 week newborn examination, Dr. Sheetal Kakade, a consulting pediatrician from Pune, would perform a comprehensive physical assessment of the baby. The examination would include the following:

  1. Measuring the baby’s height, weight, and head circumference to track growth and development.
  2. Checking the baby’s reflexes and muscle tone to assess their neurological development.
  3. Examining the baby’s eyes, ears, nose, and mouth to check for any abnormalities.
  4. Listening to the baby’s heart and lungs to check for any signs of respiratory or cardiac issues.
  5. Checking the baby’s abdomen for any abnormalities or signs of digestive issues.
  6. Examining the baby’s hips to ensure proper hip development and rule out any hip dysplasia.
  7. Checking the baby’s skin for any rashes, birthmarks, or other abnormalities.

In addition to the physical examination, Dr. Kakade would also assess the baby’s overall development, including their social and emotional development. She would ask parents about the baby’s feeding and sleeping patterns, as well as any concerns they may have about the baby’s development.

Dr. Sheetal Kakade would also use the 6-8 week examination as an opportunity to provide parents with guidance on caring for their newborn. This may include information on breastfeeding, safe sleep practices, and how to recognize signs of illness or distress in their baby.

Overall, the 6-8 week newborn examination with Dr. Sheetal Kakade would be a thorough assessment of the baby’s health and development, with a focus on early detection and intervention of any potential health issues. It would also provide an opportunity for parents to receive guidance and support in caring for their newborn.
