As a parent, your kid’s health is your number one concern. This is especially true when your little one is still brand new! There is never a convenient time for an infant to get sick, but when your infant needs non-life-threatening medical attention or urgent care, Xpress Wellness has you covered! Most family practices close up for the day by 5 pm and aren’t open at all on the weekends. When your baby needs healing hands, we’re available for them, being open until 8 pm Monday through Saturday, and until 7 pm on Sundays. We know it’s hard to see your infant struggling with a cold, and it doesn’t seem like there is anything you can do for them — you don’t have to worry! You can bring infants to Xpress Wellness for urgent care, as well as routine pediatric care.
Bring Your Infant to Xpress Wellness Urgent Care If…
Here are some of the most common issues that we can treat infants for at Xpress Wellness Urgent Care. Bring your little one to see us if they are experiencing non-life threatening symptoms like:
Severe cold or flu
Irregular/Infrequent bowel movements
Common cold symptoms
These are the most common things that we see infants for at Xpress Wellness. If you have a question about what we can treat in infants, contact us right away, and we’ll have an answer for you! Our team of health care professionals can perform just about anything that your normal pediatric doctor’s office would be able to, so you can rest easy when the doctor’s office is closed.
Take Your Infant to the Emergency Room If…
While we can treat many of the things in infants that a pediatric doctor’s office might, there are some instances where you need to skip urgent care and go directly to the emergency room or call 911. If your infant is experiencing any of the following, get them to the emergency room immediately!
High fever that will not go down
A temperature that drops too low
Infant is unresponsive
Blood in urine or stool
Deep cuts or broken bones
Rapid breathing or inability to breathe
Ultimately, you need to do with your infant what you feel comfortable with. These small children are the most vulnerable patients, and it is always better to be safe than sorry! When in doubt, go to the ER, but when your infant needs practical medical attention that does not appear to be putting their life at risk, we encourage you to come to visit one of our Xpress Wellness Urgent Care facilities today.
