Q.

really neccesary?

my baby was born on the 26th of feb and was told to go and see my peadiatrician in 6weeks again not sure why probably to check that everything is fine with baby. he had yellow jaudice when we were discharged has blood test done and it came down and was told that it will work out through his stool and urine. and i can see the difference in he''s color that it''s working out. so do i really have to go and see the peadiatrician again. as i find that it''s exhausting my medical aid and i have limited benefits. or can i just take him to my local clinic if need be instead?

Paediatrician

It seems that all is well with your baby and it is not necessary for you to take him to see the paediatrician.
