Newborn Nutrition

Whether you are providing breastmilk or formula for your child, we want to work closely with you to pay attention to your baby’s feeding schedule and patterns and make sure your child is getting enough nutrition for growth.  It is important to keep track of when and how much your child is eating so we can discuss it during your well-child visits, or in the event any issues arise with feeding.  More information can be found in our Health Information Library.

When to Call Muddy Creek Pediatrics

There are many reasons your baby may have feeding problems, if you are concerned you should call our office.  Call immediately if your baby has:

  • Weight loss
  • Gagging or vomiting with certain foods
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Reflux (arching back or pulling off bottle or breast and crying)
