Baby Clinics (run by Health Visitors)
For support from a member of the Health Visiting Team, attend a Baby Clinic or telephone for advice - see further information below.
Please attend Baby Clinic to have your baby weighed prior to their 8 week review with the GP. You do not need to weigh your baby more than once a month unless advised to do so - weighing your baby too often may cause unnecessary concern.
Your ‘Red Book’, which will be provided by a midwife, is a useful source of information. It is important to bring your child's Red Book with you every time you attend baby clinic or a health related appointment for your child so that this record can be kept up-to-date.
