    baby's doctor

    1.pediatrician is it mean baby's doctor?
    2.Usually after delivery, the baby will have a doctor attached right? Then after delivery, still need to bring the baby to regularly visit the doctor? Like when we are pregnant we regularly visit our gynae?
    3.And what are the charges like for these baby doctor? Maybe a rough estimate will do, or a range. Cos I know different doctors differ in their charges.

    baby's doctor

    Yes, pediatrician is specialist doc for children/baby.
    All babies have an assigned doc at hospital after delivery, and for followups. But you can choose your own fav pediatrician or one near your place for convenience sake. In general, you bring baby there for jaundice (during 1st month) and/or health assessment cum vaccinations.
    Consultation price has increased fairly over this couple yrs.. Neighborhood to popular clinic can range from $40+ to $60+ , or more for famous ones.
    Hope this helps

    Re: baby's doctor

    Yes Pediatrician is what we usually call 'baby doctor'.
    Yes all babies will be seen and checked by a pediatrician after your delivery.
    You will have to bring the baby back to the pediatrician for a checkup when baby is around 1 week old, the pediatrician 's clinic assistant will arrange and inform you the appt date/time.

    Actually if the first checkup is okay (e.g. no juandice or juandice level is going down), usually dont need to go back regularly except their compulsory injections. For injections, other than going to a pediatrician, you can also go to a GP who you are comfortable with or go to polyclinic. For polyclinic, just call up and make appt and a nurse (not dr) will do the injection for the baby and a dr will give baby a checkup.

    USually for first checkup with pediatrician, the consultation itself usually cost around $6-90, subsequent consultation will be around $4-60, depending on the pediatrician's charges. But during the first visit, be prepared to pay more for certain tests, like juandice blood test. I rmb my son did an optional blood test too (i forgot what is it called) and it costed around $100++ iirc.. So it is better to prepare to pay around $3-400 during the first visit (inclusive of juandice blood test, the optional blood test and consultation fee). =)
