If it is not refractory rickets, legs may become normal. Give him vitamin D 60000 units once in a week for 4 weeks n calcium rich diet supplement with calcium 300 mg daily. Sun light between 10 to 2 for about 1 hour to bare body is useful.

Dear lybrate-user, is your delivery normal/ caesar. Wats your present weight. Since your feeding your baby, its not advisable to go for internal medicine rite nw. Because mother's feed is very important for a baby & also you can regularise your body weight only by feeding your baby. Don't be stress or panic. Its easy to reduce weight. Kindly reply to my questions so that I can guide you in an easy way. Enjoy motherhood. Have a great day thank you.

If you are interested to give top milk, start with dairy milk n continue breastfeeding. Weaning time is also near by. Boiling is not related to time but to well boiling.

My daughter is not feeling hunger properly, tried many home remedies, but did not helped. Please suggest.

MD - Homeopathy
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Please try to change and introduce variety of food. Introduce parathas in any form because some children do not like to eat just chapati and vegetables. Paneer, cheeze or any vegetable paratha home made with curd, salad, soup. Can give chapati noodles which children enjoy and it is nutritious also as it contains all vegetables also.

Whatever your in laws thinking that is not blind faith. To keep baby away from out side exposure is to prevent infection and further proper rear of baby is also needed. Govt has also increased 3 more months maternity leave for same purpose.

It seems your kid is having allergic cough so it's better to avoid any thing with artificial colours, flavours. All those candies have colours and avoid jelly/jelly filled chocolates. For any fracture in kid treatment is positioning of bone in proper place so new new bone is formed in continuity.

Is Dabur Janam Ghunti is safe for one month old infant ? If yes for how much time it should be continued ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Is Dabur Janam Ghunti is safe for one month old infant ?
If yes for how much time it should be continued ?
For one month old baby it is not needed though there is no harm in using, dabur janma ghunti, an ayurvedic medicine, plays a dual role in all-round growth of infants. Dabur janma ghunti acts as an effective remedy for stomach ailments arising out of teething such as flatulence, constipation, diarrhoea, vomiting etc. It also helps in the growth process by expelling intestinal worms and toning up the digestive system of the infant with the goodness of traditional ayurvedic ingredients like anjeer, kishmish, ajwain etc.

Hi I want know about clap palat surgry for my douter or my sister.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon,
Cleft palate is a birth defect. The child can be born with defect in both the lip and palate or it may be only in palate. If it is only in palate, the operation is necessary so that the child can speak normally. The operation is generally done at the age of 9 months. Personally, I have an experience of operating more than 5000 cleft lip and palate patients.

If there is no eye brow at al, the hair roots there may be absent and you have to see if hair transplant is possible and a cosmetic surgeon can help. The colour change is genetic and there may not be much to do . You can use Johnsons soap and apply olive oil

I need to know can I travel by air with my 7 month old baby. is it safe for the baby.?

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
Yes it is ok. If the baby has a cold and blocked nose, the ear pain may be severe. In that case, it is good to instill prophylactically one drop in each nostril of nasoclear saline nasal drops and continue feeding the baby during landing and takeoff.
