Here's a great tip for new moms - the best time to schedule a doctor's appointment for your baby is first thing in the morning or right after lunch. The doctor is at his most attentive during these times.
That's a great tip but I have a small comment. Morning would be best because the doctor is at his or her freshest. After lunch, he are she may be a bit exhausted and counting down the hours to go home...
As a mother of 3, I don't suggest first thing in the morning appointments until the baby is 2 or 3 months old. As a first time mom, trying to get ready for that first doctor's appointment is stressful enough, let alone trying to make it on time for an 8:30 or 9:00 appointment.
