How do you deal with a one year old child who doesn't want to eat anything other than the mothers milk?

BHMS
Homeopath,
How do you deal with a one year old child who doesn't want to eat anything other than the mothers milk?
With patience!! I can understand that it is stressful but one has to wean gradually.you have to start by gradually allowing the baby to taste and try all the different types of foods available.first try with bland potatoes sweet potatoes, boiled carrots and peas.then you can spice up bit gradually.if he is not eating try to blend everything and then offer in a liquid or pasty manner.and try to feed him after he has played a while or when he has just woke up from his sleep.the times when they are actually hungry. don't offer food after the baby has been fed with breast milk. It is a very gradual process. It will be alarming only if the child starts showing signs of malnutrition, until then you just keep trying.

It must be dentigerous cyst. It is a benign swelling in jaw (non cancerous) but better to get it removed.

At least Family members should start to talk to him slowly and encourage him to talk slowly, he should not be fast to speak. Gradually he may start to speak without stammering. You may consult speech therapist also.

Movements of leg may be restricted due to pain which probably has no relation of illness he suffered on 19th. Polio has been eradicated. Give rest to leg for few days and give him paracetamol 250 mg, may be repeated after 8 hours. Even then get him checked in max hospital or consult pediatrician.

Mother'smilk is the best milk till 6 months of life. After that you should gradually introduce semisolids. Cows milk is better avoided till1year as it causes intolerance in some babies.

Ms. lybrate-user If your baby is just 4 Kg at 3 month of age with normal birth wight, its definitely abnormal and he is suffering from malneutrition. Probable reason behind that is faulty feeding. Firstly stop cow milk immediately and start standard formula milk in proper dilution. Continue breast sucking. It can enhance milk output. Stop bottle and use spoon and kotori with proper hygiene. Burp after each feed properly. Do not let your child malnourished, its developing phase for brain also.

Hi, I read your problem. Your son unfortunately has seizure disorder. These disorders need a lot of patience from the side of physicians and neurologists and most of it is born by the parents. He might have behavioral disturbances which are not uncommon in seizure disorder. Adding an antipsychotic agent (serotonin dopaminergic) agent might help. I suggest you consult psychiatrist along with neurologist too. We wish well for your son and do not worry there are people who have been trained in the same. All the best.

Hi Congratulations on your new journey as a parent. You have been doing a good job by exclusively breastfeeding the baby. Well done. If you think the milk supply is Getting lower you could ask your obstetrician to prescribe medicine s to enhance breastmilk production. Also drink plenty of water and have lots of time with the baby. Continuing to feed frequently will increase your milk supply and try not to stress yourself, the more calm you are the more you can concentrate on the baby which will help with the release of hormones needed for milk production. Good luck.

Hello, under central apaenea ,central nervous system fails to communicate signal to muscles to start breathing, treceostomy is a temporary rescue management as a matter of fact, your child 's brain needs medication to restore natural breathing. Homoeopathy can help to checking breathing disorder as well as boosting of brain. Tk, care.

As an allopathy doctor I can't say about aryuvedic medicine. But if your child is relieved you can continue after consulting some ayurvedic doctor. But you can put saline drops in nose one in each nostril 4-5 times in a day. Hope this helps.

Your child's doctor ,peadiatrician might have suggested you some powder milk avilable in market. There's no harm in giving powder milk to babies. Even its just 14 days of delivery gradually milk secretions of your wife may increase or your wife's doctor may prescribe her. In food items moong dal, coconut, methi, jeera, til, milk etc might help in increases secretions. Mother should have light and easy digestible food. Wait for sometime if still your wife's milk secretions are not increasing, consult me further for homeopathic prescription.

Hi, I have a newborn baby boy who is 18 days old. My wife is not breast feeding him, she says that the child remains hungry with her provided feed. Hence, she has been feeding him with some powder milk product. The kid takes the preparation and vomits it for once or twice a day and on his tongue white residues remain. Please advice me what is to be done and how can I clean the residue on the tongue and prevent the vomiting, do I have any other substitutes. Rest there are no issues. Thanks Pawan Soni.

Encourage your wife for exclusive breast feeding till 6 months of age. Nature has provided enough milk in breast for bay. White is not residues of milk. Probably it may be fungal infection most likely due to bottle feeding, do not try to remove residues.

Why Is Breastfeeding Is A Saviour For Your Baby & You | World Breastfeeding Week

Why Is Breastfeeding Is A Saviour For Your Baby & You | World Breastfeeding Week
Why is breastfeeding so good for your baby and you

Breast milk is the best for babies and the benefits of breastfeeding are one too many. Breast milk not only supplies your baby with its requirement of vitamins and nutrients, but also gets the substances which fight diseases, making your baby healthy and strong.
Benefits of breastfeeding are:

1. Protects Your Body - Breastfeeding induces some changes in your body which you might not be very delighted to accept, but are for the sake of your baby. Did you know, these very changes benefit you as well. Studies have proved that women who breastfeed are protected against breast and ovarian cancer. The longer you feed, the more protected you are.
2. Reduces Stress - Adding to the benefits of breastfeeding you can derive, is the fact that it helps you reduce stress. It also lessens your risk of postpartum depression. Breastfeeding has been found to be relaxing since it releases the hormone called oxytocin. This release also helps the uterus contract.
3. Averts Risk For Baby - A breastfed baby has lower risk of sudden infant death syndrome.
4. Reduces Obesity Risk In Baby - Breastfed babies have lower chances of obesity. They are good at judging when their tummies are full and therefore stop drinking on time. This leads to healthy growth pattern. Compared to babies who are fed on formula, breastfed babies gain weight at slower speed, hence reducing chances of obesity later in life.
5. Increases Cognitive Skills - Multiple researches have shown that there is a direct relationship between cognitive development and breastfeeding.
6. Enhances Baby’s Immunity - Breastfeed babies are also said to be better protected from developing allergies as immune factors like secretory igA is present only in breast milk. It creates a protective layer on the babys intestinal tract. Babies who aren't breastfeed are known to fall sick pretty frequently as formula diet doesn't build their immunity as mother's milk does.

You can cold sponge the forehead to lower temperature. Try to give small sips of ors (lacolytez) properly reconstituted every time baby vomits to prevent dehydration. Soft diet in small amounts. Antipyretic to decrease temp. Anti emetic to decrease vomiting.

MONITORING TO MANITAIN ASTHMA CONTROL
Ongoing monitoring is essential to maintain and establish the lowest step and dose of treatment to minimize cost and maximise safety.
Typically patient should be seen one to three months after initial assesment,and every three months thereafter.After an exacerbation.the patient should be assesed within two weeks to one month.
At every visit the patient inform the doctor following.
Use of short acting B2 agonist
Night awakening due to cough/breathlessness.
Interferance in day today activity by cough/breathless.
Any triger observed by patient.
Any concern regarding drug use.

On the basis of above information ,doctor can step up,step down or continue same treatment.
If asthma not controlled,then step treatment
If asthma partly controlled ,then consider stepping up treatment.
If asthma well controlled for three months ,then step down treatment is recommended. The goal is to maintain control with minimum treatment.

Monitoring is still reccomended even after control is achieved,as asthma is a variable disease,treatment has to be adjusted periodically.
