Being a parent has its challenging moments. That’s particularly true when it comes to your child’s health:
How do I know if my child is developing normally?
Is my drinking water safe?
What immunization schedule is ideal for my child?
What should our family do to avoid malaria?
My child has the sniffles and fever—again! Is something wrong?
Is there any help for autism or ADHD here?
How can I be sure my child will get the right care in an emergency?
Many of these questions—and more—are sure to come up as you begin the adventure of raising a family. And if you’re a first-time parent or new in-country, finding the right health-care for your child can make all the difference to your peace of mind. Muthaiga Pediatrics has been working with children and their families in Nairobi and the region since 1998.

Muthaiga Pediatrics performs well-baby checks and will assess your child’s development at every important stage from birth through age 18. We follow the checkup schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which takes into account children’s vaccination timings.
Even though it’s perfectly normal to get sick, a cold can be extremely uncomfortable and distressing for little ones, especially babies, and may require a pediatrician’s attention. You will also want to schedule an appointment to see the doctor if your older child or teenager has a sickness that seems to be more than a slight cold, to rule out the possibility of more serious illness.
If you come from or plan to move to another country, this immunization schedule may not precisely match recommendations in the place of your new assignment or in your home country. The doctors and nurses at Muthaiga Pediatrics are happy to discuss your individual situation and agree with you on an appropriate vaccination schedule for your child.

If you are running late, please notify our receptionist. If you are more than 30 minutes late for your appointment, we will try to work you back into the doctor’s schedule or perhaps offer a consultation with another provider. If your visit is a follow-up or for a well child, please be aware that we may need to reschedule your appointment for the next available day.
