Your 6 week journey at Baby Steps starts here

The 6 Week Baby GP Check is an important milestone for all new parents. A GP will check your baby’s growth and development, screen for potential health issues, discuss feeding concerns and administer immunisations. You will get the opportunity to discuss any specific health concerns you might have, what to expect in the coming weeks and months regarding your baby’s milestones, and what strategies you can implement to make living with a newborn that little bit less stressful.

Your Baby GP will help with


Breast and bottle feeding issues

Unsettled babies

New rashes or skin changes

Sleep strategies

Head position (for signs of plagiocephaly or torticollis)

Poos, vomit and other outputs

Baby weight gains

More than a box-tick

The 6 Week Baby GP Check is more than a box-tick for bub; it’s an opportunity to establish an ongoing relationship between doctor and parents and provide continuity of care for your family’s future health. It’s also a chance to ask all the questions that have been filling your mind for the last six weeks and get accurate answers from someone qualified to provide them (i.e. not the internet).

Questions you might want to ask

“How do I settle my baby?” “Is this new behaviour normal?” “Are they gaining enough weight?” “What colour should their poo be?”

A safe space

No question is too out there and no concern is too small. GPs at Baby Steps are specially trained in reducing anxiety and instilling confidence in parents for the weeks and months to come.
