  • They just want to look at him really. They will check his weight, look him over to see if he has any jaundice, ask you how you are doing that sort of thing.

  • At 5 days? No. It's just to check him over and make sure he's doing okay. They'll primarily weigh him, measure him and check him for jaundice. They'll ask you how you're doing and if you're breastfeeding if you're having any trouble and if you need help. (at least ours did...they have certified LC's on staff)
