What Influences Your Baby’s Growth?

When to Call Your Doctor

If you're keeping up with all of your well-baby visits, your pediatrician will make sure that your baby's growth is staying on track. In between visits, call the doctor if your baby:

  • Is refusing to eat or has trouble latching on if you're breastfeeding
  • Always seems hungry, even after feeding
  • Seems unusually sleepy or fussy
  • Throws up large amounts of milk or has diarrhea
  • Produces fewer than six wet diapers a day
