Sick Visits

During the first 2 months of life, any major change in your baby’s behavior should be discussed with the nurse or doctor. The following is a list of some common reasons that we would need to see your infant in the office:

  • Any fever over 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit should elicit an immediate phone call
  • Recurrent vomiting, especially if projectile or bilious (neon yellow color)
  • Persistently rapid breathing or labored breathing
  • Breathlessness or distress during feeding
  • Poor eating or concerns for dehydration (<6 wet diapers per day)
  • Color changes (pale skin, blue lips, or marked jaundice/yellowness of skin)
