In brief: Regular well checks
Normally, vaccine appointments should go along with the normal well check schedule.
Your pediatrician should be able to furnish you with the vaccine schedule they follow, showing which combinations of vaccines they use, and exactly when they are given, but most follow the acip guidelines and the chart found at aap.Org. So follow the well check schedule, and you should be fine.

In brief: Before leave hosp
Make appointments for your first few well-baby checks (including the 2 month visit, when most office vaccine schedules begin), while you're still in the hospital.
