My grand daughter (40) days old cries every day late evening time. I have consulted leading pediatrician . Some nosal drop and suspected cold and some medicine for spazams is given but till this crying continues. Please suggest.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
It looks like evening colic, for which no reason can be subscribed. Nothing to worry if child is taking good amount of feeds and growing well. Support and make the child feel secure. She will grow out of this sooner. May give colimex drops 4-5 half an hour before fixed time (if any) of crying. This is common problem faced by many young mothers.

Her food timing has to be regular and hs to avoid gas forming foods and if she takes juice or any fluid in bottle it has to be stopped.

My son 1.4 years wants to drink lot of milk (is bottle fed) and is fussy in eating fruits/veggies/cereals. Has healthy weight and is active. My paed. Says reduce milk to just half litre in entire day. But baby demands more. What to do?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Yes, your paediatrician is right. Reduce the milk and take him for meals along with you. Be firm on having home diet, you can make it little semisolid by mashing. Don't scold or punish. He will come around.

Sucking hand is due to breast and nipple confusion and if you breastfeed continue and never give bottle . Now you have to give more of love, care and feed form glass and breast . Only good care can get him out of this and relax he is only one year old

My child of 6 years is not putting on weight for the last 3 years or so. His appetite is ok but suffers from allergy and respiratory problems from time to time . He is active however but will like him to add some kilos .

Average weight of child at 6 year is about 20 kg. If your son is around of this you need not to worry since he is active. You may increase some oily and protein in diet. Otherwise it is better to leave him on his own choice of nutritious diet. If he is suffering respiratory problem, consult doctor who after assessing his problem, he may advise if respiratory problem is to do any thing with his weight gain.

Yes your baby did not gained the desired weight. Along with breast feeds also give top feeds whenever baby cries. Also give solid foods more frequently and keep trying varieties. Check the weight every week and consult paediatrician regularly and take proper nutritional guidance for the baby.

Fever always has a cause for it. You can treat fever with paracetamol and meftal p. If the fever still does not come down, I suggest giving tapid sponging until the fever is less than 100 f. Sponging is the most effective treatment of fever! however as I said earlier, we should find out the cause of fever, if infection, than the focus of infection and treat accordingly. If it is due to viral causes, supportive treatment for a couple of days would be sufficient. Keep the baby clean, prevent the baby from rapid climate changes, and make her/him drink lots of fluids. Your baby will do well. Feel free to contact anytime!

Hi, yes you can give it, its better not to give dal water instead give dal, also try mashed banana, potatoes and apple, if he takes dal then after few weeks you can make khichadi also.

Hello doctor. My baby is of 10 days now. And still there is no breast milk formed. Pls suggest as I don't want to keep him on powdered milk. This is my first pregnancy. Pls suggest how can I increase the flow of the milk.

It is nice that you strongly wish to breastfeed him. For first 7 days or so the milk produced is known as colostrum which is yellow coloured ,small in quantity &high in antibody content. But it is sufficient to meet the needs of baby. Pl give powdered milk as per directions written on the can if at all it has to be given. Pl give cup or katori ¬ bottle. GOVT OF INDIA guidelines recommend exclusive breastfeeding for first 6 months of life. The best stimulus for milk production is frequent sucking day &night. Have balanced diet & be confident. Have loving thoughts for your baby. Keep him in direct skin to skin contact. Regards&best wishes.

My son (age 14 months) is showing crankiness all day and don't like to be alone. If left alone even for a minute, he starts crying inconsolably. Also to mention that for last 3 days he used to do potty (semi liquid type) of light yellowish color and 2-3 times a day. It is observed that his teething is on and upper lower molar teeth are protruding and 2 teeth in front are also coming. Should I give one spoon of honey everyday to smoothen his teething experience and why is he cranky all the time? Please suggest?

Again teeth eruption has nothing to do with loose stool fever etc. But its sometimes cause irritation to the child as well as parents. 2 to 3 motion a day is normal at this age. Some mouth soothing gel may be helpful. Honey is for nutritional purpose it can increase thirst and paradoxical diarrhea.

Don't worry, it is normal. For constipation reduce milk intake, increase roughage in diet and plenty of water. Baby needs proper toilet training so that she makes an attempt to pass stool daily, otherwise it gets hard.

It is advisable to wean after 6 months now a days but it can be started now with semi solids like dal daliya khichadi suji kheer etc 1 item once in a day for few days n gradually changing to other items. Continue breastfeeding and start dairy milk with spoon once in a day.
