Selecting A Pediatrician For Your Preemie

Bringing home a newborn is a challenging task in its own. However, bringing home a preemie... well, that poses a whole new set of worries for new parents. One of the most critical factors in caring for premature babies is paying close attention to their health and nutrition and making sure to take baby to the pediatrician often.

You may find yourself overwhelmed at the thought of selecting a pediatrician that you feel you can trust. Don't worry - these doctors are highly trained in this field. Before selecting your pediatric care center, it is a good idea to visit several in your area so you canvrest assured you made the right decisions.

Here are a few things you may want to ask the staff (or even the doctor if he is available to speak):

  • Do you have separate waiting rooms for children that are sick and healthy children? (This lowers your baby's chance of becoming ill at a time when his immune system is not fully developed.)

  • If I have an emergency after hours, how long will it take for me to get a response if I call your answering service?

  • Do you put a strong emphasis on nutrition for premature babies?

  • Does your office provide referrals to specialists or early-intervention programs?

  • Will the same doctor be seeing my preemie at every visit?



It is always a good idea to ask your OBGYN if they know of any good pediatricians that they may be able to recommend. Also, check with your insurance company to get a list of providers in your area that are covered under your baby's insurance.
