Give lactose free milk. It is not curable. Pls bear with it. Some time cows milk ingested by breast feeding mother may produce lactose intolerance like symptoms in infant which is due to cows milk allergy and baby gets relieved if mother stop taking cows milk.

Since you say that the problem is for 3 months, I assume he was normal before that. This is not good sign. There may be many causes. Psychological factor may be at play. Need more information about the time the problem started.

It is called encopresis and usually due to psychological problem. Find out any stress inducing events in the family or school. It will resolve slowly. Get an mri spine to rule out a neurological problem which sometimes may cause that.

Hello, babies born before 37 weeks of gestational age are called pre mature babies. They are, of course, smaller than full term babies, but many are born without their organs having had enough time to fully develop. Some of these babies show obvious disabilities. They need a considerable medical care to survive. Mature babies are born after the completion of 37 weeks of pregnancy. Thanks.

Start giving him Naturamore Children's Powder 1 spoon daily in morning and evening for 1 month. This will definitely give you results. As the Powder is just a supplement containing proteins, vitamins, minerals and all. You will get result 110%. Just inform me if you are not getting the powder anywhere. Take care. :)

Ideally undescended testis should be surgically replaced within say before 1 year of age. After birth if testis is not in the say then chances of malignant changes increase with every passing month. Initially hormonal therapy may be attempted but if no descent then surgery recommended before 1 year age. It is to be noted with late replacement of testis there's three risk *risk of testicular malignancy *risk of infertility *psychological distress to the child review urgently with a pediatric surgeon and get him treated as soon as possible. Hope this helps.

You need to consult a physician for your diabetes problem. As far as your child is concerned your diabetes will not affect your child with your breast milk. Need not worry!

Best contraceptive is that which suits you and you like. New Copper T is quite good and safe, low oestrogen OCP can be used. Before adopting any contraceptive method, consult Family planing Counselor.

If it is simple cold n cough without involvement of lung i.e. URTI, for last 5 days, now there is no role of antibiotics. I think she is having blocked nose. Some time salbutamol makes the condition worst. I repeat if there is no involvement of lung infection n baby taking feed near to normal, stop all medicine just instill saline nasal drops in each nostril 3-4 times in a day and give her sips of lukewarm water now n then. Otherwise continue tt as advised by your doctor.
