Top 10 Best Child Specialists in Mumbai


No matter how tough an exterior we project to the world, we’ll always tend to have a soft corner for our children. The same goes for when they need medical attention or for even the simplest task of bandaging up a bruise. Restlessness and anxiety only form the tip of the iceberg when we see them get hurt or witness them falling ill. You’ll be able to handle the routine minor cuts, bruises, and colds. But what happens when your child has a slightly more serious illness or injury? That’s when pediatricians come in. A pediatrician is a medical doctor that specializes in health care for infants, adolescents, and children. They provide preventive care for healthy children and medical care to children suffering from an illness, an injury, or an ailment.

The pediatrician you choose will play a vital role in the growth and developmental phase of your child. Starting at birth, regular pediatrician visits and immunizations are very important. After the age of around 2 years, your child should have a health check-up each year. The benefits of meeting up with a pediatrician in the early stages of childhood aren’t just for parents. This study held by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia states that babies who see the same doctor for their first six months are up to twice as likely to receive important preventive health screenings before they turn 2. The best time to start looking for a pediatrician would be between 28 and 34 weeks into your pregnancy when you most likely have at least a few weeks to be prepared. This time frame would help you decide what you want for your baby, what you should expect from pediatricians, and help you zero in on the queries and concerns that you may have to put before them.

It’s a known fact, however, that many parents would prefer a family practitioner, or in other words a family doctor who would, or has been treating all the members of the family, of all ages. One distinct advantage to this is that the doctor would have complete knowledge of the family’s medical history, and would be able to point out and treat any hereditary conditions (if any) well in advance. Other parents would want to take their baby to a pediatrician, a doctor who specializes in child care. Focusing on children’s health issues and practicing solely on kid’s conditions each day gives pediatricians the experience and sensitive expertise needed for children’s medical issues.

If you are new to the parenting world, you and your partner may have a lot of doubts or concerns about your child’s health care. Don’t shy away from talking to your doctor about your concerns. As uncomfortable or even embarrassing as they may feel, be rest assured that the doctor has heard it all before! Keep reminding yourself that you will be trusting a person with your most valuable and precious possession. However, if you still feel that your queries are too trivial to bother a doctor with, you can always ask other mommies around. That’s the proper time to play the friends & family card.

If your problem or concern can’t be resolved right away, or your worries aren’t addressed, don’t hesitate to change doctors, or ask for a second opinion at the very least. Always ensure that your child is comfortable with your doctor. Remember, especially if you or your child tends to feel intimidated by the doctor you choose, that you’ll be hiring this person to provide professional health care for your baby.  At the end of the day, you need to have a doctor you can count on and communicate with well when it comes to your baby’s health. All the very best to you and your partner!
