This is a healthy 2-month-old baby seen with their mother for the appointment. The mother says the baby eats and sleeps well, interacts socially, and appears to have normal vision and hearing. Safety measures at home include smoke detectors, a safe sleeping environment, and constant adult supervision. The baby’s hygiene is good, and there are no issues with the diaper area.

Details of the Visit

Today, we saw a 2-month-old baby boy for a checkup. He was born vaginally at 39 weeks gestation, weighing 7lbs 4 oz, and measuring 19 inches. He had no complications at birth and is accompanied by his mother. He is not taking any medications, and there are no known allergies. He is breastfed 5-7 times a day for about 10 minutes on each breast, with variations due to his mother’s school schedule. He has minimal spitting up, has 5-6 wet diapers and 3 bowel movements per day, and sleeps approximately 16 hours on certain days. His developmental milestones include smiling, tracking objects with his eyes, cooing, turning to sounds, and lifting his head when on his stomach. The mother’s health is busy but generally good, although she reports insufficient sleep and full breasts before feeding. Safety measures include a rear-facing car seat, safe sleeping arrangements, and constant supervision at home.

Physical Examination Findings

The baby’s measurements are within normal ranges, with his head circumference, weight, and length all falling between the 5th and 95th percentiles. Vital signs are within normal limits. His head is symmetrical, fontanelles are normal, eyes are clear with a red reflex present, ears are aligned, nose and mouth are normal, neck has full range of motion, chest and lungs are clear, heart sounds are normal, abdomen is soft, and genitalia are normal. His skin is warm, smooth, and without lesions, and he demonstrates appropriate hearing and vision responses.


Overall, the baby’s findings are normal for his age, with appropriate growth and development, normal physical exam findings, and no significant concerns.


The plan is to continue breastfeeding and schedule a follow-up appointment in 2 months unless issues arise. The mother’s health will be monitored, and vaccinations will be administered according to the CDC schedule. Specific instructions include surveillance for the next visit, continuing with breastfeeding and implementing a structured feeding schedule, consulting with a lactation specialist, ensuring safety measures, and providing anticipatory guidance for the baby’s development and care.
