anyone know if they do anything special at the one-month well baby checkup?

Just wondering. My daughter's one-month checkup is tomorrow, and I don't know what to expect. They told me to bring every herbal or OTC medicine I'm giving her, anyone know why? She's a perfectly healthy baby, I wasn't sure why they would need to see the meds I'm giving her (only Mylicon and saline drops for her constantly stuffy nose).

  • They probably will only weigh her. And I bet they want to see her meds to make sure what she is getting is ok. Some parents give their children things they shouldn't.

  • At my daughter's one month they weighed and measured her. Checked her heartbeat, joints, ears, eyes ect. The dr. asked how often I was breastfeeding, how long she slept through the night, how many naps. Went over any questions I had.
