What is our difference from others?
Modern approach to neonatal/infant care - An important part of our services is the early pediatric follow-up of growth and development of the baby. Our services start right after the hospital discharge of the new mom and the baby, providing newborn examinations and support of the parents/family. The up-to-date breastfeeding support, feeding advices, the follow-up of the growth and development and the open and honest communication with the parents is what makes us different from other providers.
Expert approach to breastfeeding and infant feeding-Our pediatric team will help you to properly start the early breastfeeding and to maintain it as long as you and your baby enjoy it. Together we will overcome the common breastfeeding obstacles and will enable the baby to grow healthy with everything that is good for him. And for the mothers that did not choose the breastfeeding, we will provide advices and information for proper feeding from day one. After the age of 4-6 months, our team will guide you and your baby through the whole process of introduction of complementary feeding (meals). Together with the parents, we will provide good foundation for proper feeding habits and healthy growth, at the same time reducing the risk for obesity and malnutrition.
