Arkin's well baby checkup

Yesterday, Arkin had his  1st well baby checkup.

Here are some of the photos taken during the checkup…

Ate Lexi and Arkin

Overall, he was a well baby however we need to treat his physiologic jaundice by exposing him to sunlight for an hour between 7-8am.

Pedia also prescribed CELLIFE (new to my ear).  
It contains factor that can help correct jaundice by removing bilirubin in the baby’s body. 
This is not sold in Mercury drug but can be found in Generica stores (PhP143 for 21 sachets). 
Pedia said to mix 1 sachet with his milk (regardless of the oz) 3x/day.

I love the freebie Abbot baby book.

I was really impressed with Arkin’s Pedia.
She was so keen explaining everything to us (not knowing that I was a Pedia Nurse before :P).
She explained everything well and my husband was really impressed too.

We are going back for Arkin’s 2nd checkup on May 2nd
Arkin is due to have his 2nd dose of Hepa B vaccine.
