Hello Joko Pitono, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Even though there are no complaints or appear healthy, it is highly recommended that you continue to bring your child for a re-examination, because your child is now 40 days old and if conditions are healthy and possible then the doctor may begin to provide basic immunizations according to his age.
It should also be noted that examinations to the doctor, especially for newborn babies, do not have to be when the child is experiencing complaints or when he is sick, because his growth and development must also be monitored regularly and often the disturbance in these two aspects is not visible because the child looks healthy and only known after there are more severe complications from the disorder that arises.
In addition to monitoring the growth and development of infants, periodic control also aims to ensure that your child always gets immunizations that are appropriate for his age and not get delayed because they are very important to prevent diseases that are dangerous to babies that can be prevented by immunization.
Peru is understood that prevention is far better than treatment, so even if there are no complaints, if it is recommended by a doctor to bring your child for control, do so as directed to ensure that your child's condition is always in optimal condition.
Hope it helps.
