alright so we already have a pediatrician because we have a 5 year old but how and when do I let the hospital know this so that my baby can see that Dr within his first week?

The hospital will (should) ask you pediatrician preferences when you have the baby or if you pre-register maybe then.  I delivered my second at a hospital that was not one my pedi practiced at so she was seen by the pedi there and it was my responsibility to call our pedi and make an appt for when we were released.

My first was born at the hospital where our pedi practiced and I was blessed that she was on call when we had her.

My OB's nurse asked me at my first appt who I wanted. But, I bet you could just call and ask who can see your newborn when it's born.

Well I am delivering at a hospital that my pediatrician does not have rights to so she will have to see a pediatrician that is at the hospital. Then, within a couple of days I will have to bring her in to see my pediatrician for her first appointment.
