Plz do not do anything, It will not hurt your baby. Umbilical hernia is very very innocent hernia. This could be operated when it hurts or just for cosmetic reson.

My baby is 6months old. Between how much gap should I feed other semisolid food. For good health and weight gain.

Hi lybrate-user, 6 months is perfect age to introduce semisolid diet. Usually the gap between 2 meals should be minimum 3hours but still it all depends upon child's demand coz some kids may not even eat for a duration of 4hrs after last meal or some may require feeds every 2hrs. But one thing I will strictly advise never force feed your child. Every meal time should be very relaxed so you can see your child growing happily and confident even.

My baby has completed 6 months now, for last 20 days she is having loose motions. We are not giving any outside food except mother's milk. The pediatrician advised not to worry, it will stop on its own. First three days we gave econorm, but doctor suggested to stop it as the Baby don't have any infection problem, so no antibiotics needed. Baby is active, no vomiting. But motions didn't stop. What to do ?

It may be your perception that stool is loose. It may be liquid or semi solid but may be many times in a day. It does not require any medicine. Since she is still on exclusive breast milk at 6 months, she requires additional food and top milk too. It is her weaning period. Start with semi solids with any one like kheechadee, dal, suji kheer etc. It may resolve problem.

Research suggests that people with mild eczema who drink oolong tea three times a day may show improvement in itching and other symptoms. Compounds in the tea called polyphenols appear to be responsible.

Hello, can you please suggest me which is the best milk for my 3years old child? Cow Milk or Buffalo Milk?

Doctor of Medicine - Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Agra
Between the two, prefer undiluted cow's milk as it is more near to human milk in composition and hence more easily digestible.

It will grow 2 cm in the first 3 months and then till 6 months 1 cm per month and thereafter 0.5 cm till one year. If it's not growing you may have to do a ct scan and consult your pediatrician.

My child is 3 years and 2 months old and he is stutter for some times.This is continuing for past 3 months.Why he is like is this and whether he need any speech therapy or any other practice he is feeling shy for this and what is the resolution for this?

MBBS, DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
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.

Also, you can be rest assured that as the child grows this will not be visible to you because of his crop of hair.

In this age this is normal procedure. Do not worry. If he passes stool 15 to 20 times then you must see a child specialist.

It is summer season, thirst is common. It may be your perception that child is not interested in food. watch his activities and weight gain. If these are normal, you need not to worry. If he is not taking any nutritious diet at all, consult pediatrician.

Hello, Homoeopathy is the best and safest option for all the age group including newborn babies! So, give her Schwabe’s Alpha-CF, Alpha-NC and Biocombination-11, all of them after every 2 hourly for 4 days (mix 2 tablets in a sterilised bowl with your milk and then give to your baby). Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air (wrap a warm stole or muffler around neck). -Avoid excessive or rough use of your voice/ shouting. -Gargle with warm water and salt 3 times a day and take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -Take enough sleep and rest.

My son of 50 days old is not getting sufficient Breast milk from his mother. Is there any medicine to increase Breast milk for my child or any other powder food can take. Mother is 26 year old.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Sir, Mother has to increase water intake, may be 3 to 4 litres per day. No restrictions should be made. She has to suckle the child frequently. She has to sit and feed, later should BURP the child for 10 minutes. Let her eat lot of fruits and vegetables. Food should not be restricted. she has to eat good home made food when ever she is hungry. It is very important. Let her put protein powder in milk, at least 3 times per day. Proteins are important. She can take, eat Non veg. items also. She has to eat food, 5 to 6 times per day. This is because, the entire nutrition for the Baby is from mother. If she follows this, she should get good response within 1 week. Lastly, She SHOULD like to feed. she should not have any stress. Get back to me if there is no response within 1 week.
