Whether you have a vaginal delivery or a cesarean section, your health care costs will rise from the moment your infant arrives. Luckily, baby health care (every check up and vaccine) can be covered by health insurance if you know how to obtain it.
Baby vaccines are tough to watch for both parent and child, but just a few vaccinations during your newborn's first years will help protect her for years to come. Some newborn vaccinations will be administered as early as the delivery room!
Your baby has been around for four weeks now, which means it's time to take her to her first checkup. Expect the doctor to measure your newborn's height, weight and length, to discuss vaccination and to talk to you about supplements.
