Spitting Up in Babies
Why do babies spit up?
Babies spit up when they've eaten too much or when they've swallowed too much air while feeding. Spitting up usually happens when babies burp. It can also happen when your baby is drooling. Spitting up is not vomiting. Babies usually don't notice when they spit up. Vomiting is forceful and painful. Spitting up is common for most babies until about the time they can eat solid foods (usually around 6 months to 1 year of age).

The medical term for "spitting up" is gastroesophageal reflux, or reflux. It happens when milk or solid food in the stomach comes back up into your baby's esophagus (the esophagus is the tube that joins the mouth and the stomach).

What can I do to help my baby?
Feed your baby by placing him or her in an upright position. If you bottle-feed you baby, burp him or her every 3 to 5 minutes. Make sure the hole in the nipple on the bottle is not too large, or milk will come out too fast. Avoid laying your baby down following a feeding or moving him or her around too much before the food settles in the stomach.

Some babies spit up less if their formula is thickened with rice cereal. Ask your doctor if you can add 2 to 3 teaspoons of rice cereal to each ounce of formula. You might have to use a nipple with a larger hole so the thicker formula will come out easily.

Some babies also spit up less if they are given less milk at each feeding, but are fed more often.
Will reflux cause problems for my baby?
Spitting up is messy, but it is normal during your baby's early months. It rarely involves choking, coughing or pain.

However, you should contact your doctor if you notice your baby has the following symptoms:
Is not gaining weight.
Spits up a large amount of milk (more than 1 or 2 tablespoons)
Spits up or vomits forcefully
Has fewer wet diapers than normal
Seems very tired or lethargic
Spits up green or brown liquid
Should I CONSULT A doctor
------------------------------------
If your baby experiences any of the symptoms listed above, you should CONSULT ONLINE PRIVATELY IN THIS SITE/drsajeev/lybrate

First, your doctor will make sure your baby is healthy and growing well. Your doctor will also check to see if your baby has breathing problems. If your doctor thinks your baby is fine, nothing else needs to be done. Your doctor will probably want to see your baby regularly./REMAIN IN CONSTANT TOUCH,ONLINE OR PERSONALLY

If your baby's reflux is causing excessive problems, your doctor may prescribe medicine to help treat it. This medicine is the same one used for heartburn in adults. If your baby continues to not gain weight or develops other problems, your doctor might do some additional tests.

My daughter is 14 years but her completion is dark. How to make her skin fair with home remedies. She uses Vaseline Aloe Vera lotion.

Everyone has a favourite face cream or treatment, but beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within. Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of micronutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. Eat the correct balance of foods and you'll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, supple and blemish-free. Eat your five-a-day Fruit and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that help to protect skin from the cellular damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are caused by smoking, pollution and sunlight and can cause wrinkling and age spots. Eat a rainbow of colourful fruit and vegetables and aim for at least five portions a day. Betacarotene, found in pumpkin, carrots and sweet potatoes, and lutein, found in kale, papaya and spinach are potent antioxidants, important for normal skin cell development and healthy skin tone. Vitamin C Vitamin C is also a super antioxidant. It is needed for a strong immune system, radiant skin and helps blemishes heal properly. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. They all help to produce collagen that strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin. Cut out crash diets Repeatedly losing and regaining weight can take its toll on your skin, causing sagging, wrinkles and stretch marks. Crash diets are often short in essential vitamins too. Over long periods of time this type of dieting will reflect on your skin. Stock up on selenium Selenium is a powerful antioxidant. It works alongside other antioxidants such as vitamins E and C and is essential for the immune system. Studies suggest that a selenium-rich diet can help to protect against skin cancer, sun damage and age spots. One way to boost your intake is to eat Brazil nuts. Just four nuts will provide the recommended daily amount (RDA). Mix Brazil nuts with other seeds rich in vitamin E as a snack or salad sprinkle. Other good sources are fish, shellfish, eggs, wheatgerm, tomatoes and broccoli. Vitamin E Vitamin E protects skin from oxidative (cell) damage and supports healthy skin growth. Foods high in vitamin E include almonds, avocado, hazelnuts, pine nuts and sunflower and corn oils. Drink up Skin needs moisture to stay flexible. Even mild dehydration will cause your skin to look dry, tired and slightly grey. Drink six to eight glasses of water a day - all fluids count towards your daily allowance, but water is the best. If you work in an office, keep a large bottle of water on your desk to remind you to drink. Herbal, caffeine-free teas are good too. Try to avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, both can age the skin.

MRCP (UK), DNB, MD
Pulmonologist, Mumbai
Dear, Need to get some details. Is he also having fever, loss of appetite or weight? Any family history of allergy like runny nose, eczema etc? Asthma is a genetic disease. And clinical examination and history are the best diagnostic tools. It can also be treated easily and help your son lead a normal childhood.

If your child's age is between 9-12 years and his/her front teeth or jaws are looking forwardly placed then consult orthodontist as soon as possible as this is the proper age to treat your child by modifying jaw growth if there is any imbalance between upper n lower jaw.

These 2 conditions may be separate or may be linked due to stress of studies. Headache may be due to vision error, get your eye tested. It require many information to suggest about loose motion.

It seems that you feel the situation is out of your control and you are looking for the means to change your son's behavior. Little children are like a sponge, they absorb things and learn front us and environment around them. There are main two reason that children misbehave. 1. They want your attention and love. 2. Just like any human they too are wired to assert power. When they misbehave and gets attention they feel powerful and continue to behave that way. Right now I do understand that you get frustrated with his behavior and out of your own habit you might show some kind of aggression by shouting or sometimes even slapping. Abusing someone is not a solution to any problem rather it worsens the situation. Through our behavior we are planting seeds in out child's mind. For you to change this situation you need to be very patient and calm. Once your behavior and your attitude will change his behavior will also change. Also when we lable our child as stubborn jiddi shy or noughty. We are feedimg their mind woth these ideas. A d they will try to be best at that. Now kids do not do all these things knowingly. They have no idea what else to do so they respond to your stimulus and behavior. Also it is very normal for parents to feel overwhelmed and frustrated and dispute k owing so many things it is difficult to respond ideally in a heated situation. I am sure this could be one of the major reason for frustration as well. What you need is a support from someone who understand you and also know how to guide you through the situation step by step so that you will lean and change the way you are responding now. Once this happens you will get back the control and things will turn into posotive direction. I would suggest you to either call me or consult someone in your city and seek help. If you work with someone on weekly basis it will help you make some changes. If you decide to enter into 3 to 4 month committed relationship, I do have some tools and techniques which you will be able to learn and apply immediately. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

This is umbilical hernia. Itself it is not serious but if air filled like small balloon which is a part of intestine may get strangulated in it which is serious cause. It is better to consult either pediatrician or surgeon.

11 month old baby can appreciate well what he needs and what he doesn't need. If he is thirsty, he shall definitely demand water. Mixing of water in milk means you are depriving him of his nutritional requirement. I shall not advise to mix water in milk.

Recurrent vomitings will lead to weight loss. Stop bottle feeding if doing, antiemetic drops given 20 minutes before feed will help. Semisolid/solid diet to be preferred over liquid diet.

My girl child is 03 years old. She does not eat happily. We force eat her with very difficultly . Therefore she is very thin as compare to same age group child .What should I do?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
If your baby is not suffering from any disease then here are some tips. Most important is STOP FORCED FEEDING. Basic principal is six meals a day, three large and three small, feed size is three to four fist size, allow to finish in twenty minutes eating time, if not finished then withdraw the left over, do nothing in between the meals, love your baby a lot and express it too but food only during feeding time.The food should be rich in fats and protins example eggs, kheer, khidi with ghee, stuffed paratha, halwa, upma, shakes, grind nuts etc.FOOD SHOULD BE PLEASURE NOT PUNISHMENT.
