Newborn visits

We recommend that your newborn be seen within 2 days of leaving the hospital. Newborn appointments are available 7 days a week. Call 253-383-5777, option 1 to schedule your appointment.

Your newborn’s well child visit includes important screening for severe but treatable diseases. We will also check for jaundice, a common condition in newborns, along with a weight check and addressing any feeding concerns. Your baby’s well child visits will help us track important milestones in their development and prevent harmful diseases by keeping vaccines up to date according to the recommended schedule.


The providers at Pediatrics Northwest follow the CDC’s immunization schedule. We encourage all patients to follow this schedule as the best way to protect your child from vaccine preventable illnesses.
