Babies in the first few days of life are a very vulnerable population. They have poor immunity to infections, their organs and systems are often not fully mature, and they have to cope with the change from the protected life in the uterus to the outside world.
Illnesses in babies progress very rapidly. A baby that shows a small variation from normal may be seriously ill a few hours later. With babies, waiting is not a wise policy. If your baby seems unwell, contact your pediatrician immediately.
