Infant Care

Westmed Family Healthcare

What is infant care?

Infant care involves the medical care of infants and children and is focused on the wellness and health complications commonly associated with infants. Infant care is also centered around child growth and development.

Babies and infants develop quickly. The Westmed Family Healthcare specialists stay up to date with every infant they treat, giving each child individualized comprehensive care.

Every infant responds differently to medications, the environment, and illness, depending on a number of factors including age, general health, and medical and family history.

Westmed Family Healthcare providers offer a variety of effective screening and testing methods, immunizations, and treatments to keep infants healthy throughout development.

What are some of the most common health complications that affect infants?

Infants face some of the same health complications as adults, such as:

  • Obesity
  • Infections
  • High blood sugar and insulin resistance

In most cases, the same infection can have a more significant impact on a child than an adult due to the child’s smaller stature and weaker immune system.

Some health complications are more common or specific to infants and children, such as tonsillitis and ear infections.

What are the benefits of infant care?

Infant care offers many benefits, most importantly the knowledge and skill of a specialist trained in the unique and specific care of infants and children.

Depending on the age of the child, Westmed Family Healthcare providers can educate pediatric patients about a healthy lifestyle to give them a better chance of becoming a healthy adult. Your doctor will work to reduce your child’s risk of an array of chronic diseases and work to improve their physical and emotional well-being.

Many children are adventurous and active, so it’s important to take adequate safety precautions to prevent injury. The Westmed Family Healthcare specialists will give you and your child helpful guidelines to protect them from injury and create a secure and safe home environment.

Infant care also involves a child’s emotional health as well as behavioral and social concerns. Growing up is often emotionally challenging, and emotional health has a direct impact on physical health. The physicians at Westmed Family Healthcare know the importance of paying attention to a child’s emotional state.
