When a baby is born, a nurse or doctor will carry out a series of tests to determine whether the baby's physical condition is normal. An Apgar test is performed to determine whether the baby requires immediate medical care. After the delivery of a child, the baby will be offered a vitamin K shot, newborn screening tests and eye drops. The newborn baby will also get a hepatitis B vaccine and a hearing test. Pediatricians would also check the babies for any chronic illness. All the new born babies need to go through a range of tests to examine their physical condition. A baby tends to undergo several changes during the initial year of life. Babies have health problems that are different from adults and older children. A pediatrician takes care of the mental, physical and emotional wellness of the infants under their care at all stages of the development, in both health and sickness. Pediatricians not just offer newborn baby care but also offer preventive health services. Pediatricians diagnose as well as treat many conditions that exist with the children that include injuries, infections, congenital and genetic conditions, dysfunctions and organ diseases and cancers. With newborn baby care treatment, it is possible to reduce child and infant mortality, control infectious disease, foster healthy lifestyles and ease out the difficulties of children with chronic conditions.
