Well Baby Clinic: Nurses provide valuable guidance to new parents

Camp Lejeune, NC, June 13, 2013

Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune area parents have a resource available to freely ask questions from registered nurses about their child’s development through Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society’s Well Baby Clinic.

The Well Baby Clinic is held during the first Tuesday of every month at the Tarawa Terrace Community Center and the second Tuesday of every month at the Midway Park Chapel from 10 a.m. to noon.

Babies and toddlers are weighed and measured by nurses who can answer questions about medical concerns and general child development.

While the information does not replace a doctor’s advice, the nurses provide guidance on noncritical childhood illnesses, how children adapt to siblings, a child’s feeding schedule or any other topic. A lactation consultant is typically available to answer questions about breastfeeding.
