I hope collect her dish and eat on table with others. You have not to jolt her to eat food. She is not eating fast food outside house. If both these. Point is followed then you need to some extra calories in form of oats dishes. I hope she is full term and gaining weight in under 5 years age.

Child learns from us, so don't force her to take feed. For next 5- 7 days you, yourself eat the food that you want her to eat. Don't offer her, just eat your self. Make her habitual to see those thing to being eaten. After that, Use distraction method to feed. Bring her out in park or her favorite place or play cartoon. Now offer her food, But don't use words like - "beta khalo. Just keep talking and make her involve with the things and while talking when she opens her mouth offer her food and complete her words from your side. But don't show any expression as you are feeding her. Keep your conversation continue. If she spits, hold for 2-3 minutes and try again. Initially, every time gave her atleast 1/2 hour to feed. Keep yourself calm and cheerful.

My baby is two months old girl. She is only fed mother's milk. Now she has not done potty since 3 days. Before this, she was doing normal potty daily. She is taking medicines bisgly-xt drops, rxplus drops, calshine p drops, ostocalcium b12 syrup that are prescribed 1 & 1/2 months ago by paediatrician. Now please advise, what to do for her normal motion.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Relax no need to do anything. If child is taking breast feeds and is active, to pass soft stools once in 5-6 days is normal. If child is passing gas then there is no mechanical obstruction in the gut (serious surgical condition). As regards the tonics iron and vit d drops are okay.

All About Chronic Lung Disease in Infants

All About Chronic Lung Disease in Infants

The newborn are often extremely susceptible to fatal diseases and the first few months of the infant's life calls for uncompromised care and vigilance. One of the most precarious diseases afflicting the newborn babies are chronic lung disorders. This condition mainly emanates from a damage to the lung tissue, which results in breathing troubles. Under such circumstances, the lung may collapse, being filled with fluids and end up oozing out harmful mucus. While a severe form of such lung diseases may often result in the death of the infant, in most cases the infants outgrow the disease and with proper care, grow up to lead a healthy life. 

Most chronic lung diseases in infants are congenital and are spurred by a variety of causes: 

  1. Premature delivery: Chronic lung diseases are recurrent in babies born prematurely, i.e. before the lapse of at least 26 weeks of gestation age. Underweight infants also run the risk of suffering from this ailment. The lungs are not able to develop fully in such situations as a result of which they become prone to respiratory distresses. Another allied trigger to Chronic Lung Disease is the use of ventilation on the premature babies. The forced breathing and imposed oxygen levels induced by ventilators often impair normal lung functions in babies. 
  2. Fluids in the lungs: Certain babies are either born with or develop a condition where fluids accumulate in the lungs. This inflicts a lot of damage to the lungs and leads to such diseases.
  3. Respiratory Infections: Some babies are likely to acquire lung infections from certain disease causing viruses. This largely handicaps the normal lung functions. 
  4. Heart conditions:  Abnormal blood circulation in the heart also stimulates lung diseases in newborns. If the heart is unable to regulate the flow of blood to the lungs properly, then the chances of such diseases increase by leaps and bounds. 
  5. Inhaling harmful foreign materials: Certain particles often affect the health of the lungs tremendously. Exposure to meconium during delivery might result in the inflammations that potentially injure the lung tissues. 
  6. Nutrition deficiencies: If an infant's body lacks vital nutrients, it may result in a condition of malnutrition. Lack of vitamin A may cause chronic lung diseases. 

Chronic Lung Diseases are usually recoverable with early detection and appropriate treatment. However, one needs to meticulously cater to the health needs of the baby, in order to ensure complete recovery and avert recurrence.

2 Months old baby has loose motions, is being fed on similac advance any home remedy?

Pediatrician, Kaithal
Stop bottle feeding, if given. Breast feed your baby, if there is no medical contraindication. If stools are non watery, baby is active and gaining weight properly, it can be a normal activity for this age. It will be better to get your baby examined by a pediatrician.

Atopy is long lasting condition and keep on coming at interval. Permanent cure is difficult Treatment includes avoiding soap and other irritants. Certain creams or ointments also may provide relief from the itching. A dermatologist will create a treatment plan tailored to the patient’s needs. Medicine and other therapies will be prescribed as needed to: Control itching. Reduce skin inflammation (redness and swelling). Clear infection. Loosen and remove scaly lesions. Reduce new lesions from forming.

Hello, If your child is active and does not fall sick often, there is nothing to worry. He is not extremely underweight, but you need to improve on his protein, calcium and iron requirements.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Give your baby homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Alpha-NC and Alpha-CF - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. This is the best treatment for your baby as homoeopathy is very mild-acting medicines which is given to even newborn baby without causing any harm!! Take care of your baby.

The best foods for the baby are those that are homecooked and have a soft, thick consistency. You can give your baby mashed bananas, curd, khhichdi, dal, chapati soaked in dal and mashed.
