What can I expect at my baby's six week check-up?

What will the Doctor do to my baby at the six week check-up?

Submitted by devonievpike

At the 6 week check doctors always check a baby's growth (height , weight, head size); normal care (pooping, feeding, rashes) and assess development (is the baby starting to smile, easy to calm)...and finally we always check to see that the family is doing well...looking for any signs of family conflict, postpartum depression, exhaustion.
