A. Nutrition deserves special attention during pregnancy because of increased demand and specific role of different nutrients for the baby during pregnancy.
B. A woman whose diet is adequate before pregnancy is usually able to come out with full term pregnancy

Hello, if your baby is satisfied after every feed, passes stool every day & passes urine 5-6 times a day, gaining weight, then stop worrying. Milk flows wen baby sucks at breast. Anxiety & worry will hamper milk secretion. Have healthy diet comprising lots of seasonal fruits & vegetables, with atleast 1 glass of milk every day. Enjoy your motherhood.

Tired looking eyes and bit of yellow but otherwise active child can be due to many causes including jaundice, thyroid problem, malnutrition, exhaustion and even in genetic component which may be absolutely normal. You can try for a good multivitamin formulation along with good nutritious diet and increasing water intake. Even then you can do some blood test like lft, tsh, cbc, urine r/e.

Hi, I'm a 14 years old girl. I am a boyish type of girl, I don't really go out of the house don't have a boyfriend since birth, I'm very focused on my study, and I'm an achiever in our school as well, And when I go out my parents are always w/ me, I masturbate w/ my pants and panties on but just rubbing it not fingering. So I have this very strange feeling, & I don't even want to mention it cause it's very impossible. Because after I go biking on thursday my nipples hurt when they're slightly touched, is it because I only wear sando bras instead of bras? And also my pimples are coming out. I didn't get my period yet but there's also a problem in my period, Cause when I got it It's like a flood flowing and lasts until 1-2 months and skips form 3-4 months that's also the reason why we go to a ob gyn for a check up last summer, And then the ob gyn gave me some trust pills which has numbers of days in it and has yellow and brown color. But still my period skips 1 month now only and when I got it it only lasts 5 days. Then in the evening I only ate a little amount for dinner and just ate breakfast w/ one scoop of rice only in the 10/11am, I didn't ate lunch, But I take snacks SOMETIMES in the afternoon (That's the way I eat and been months since I do this) And I also often drink soft drinks. I drink them like water when I get thirsty. So later on in that evening. I slept at 11pm and just suddenly woke up at 1am w/ sort of nausea, A little Abdominal pain, I got cold, I urinate frequently but a just a little amount of urine, I farted a lot, My tummy is bloating, I cannot finish a yawn, I have a little blood in my rectal, I have hard and liquid stools, And I cannot go back to sleep so I stay awake until 6am. Then when I take my breakfast I like to vomit it but I forced myself to eat it but then I didn't vomit it but I had hard time chewing it. Pls help me. I'm very worried and confused now!

There is nothing abnormal at this age. For your periods, you are already under treatment of obs and gyn. Rectal bleed may be due to 1st part of constipated hard stool that proceed loose stool. Your food habit is under quantity and under nourishing causing constipation. Change your food habit and concentrate on your studies.

If cough is persistent for more than 15 days. He needs to be investigated by a competent PEDIATRICIAN. Please do not give any cough syrup. Instead you can give honey twice a day. It must be kept in mind that most cough are viral in nature thus self limiting and do not require any antibiotics or antitussive. However a child with cough persistent for more than 2 weeks with or without fever need to be examined.

Avoid using any cough syrup without doctor advice because dosage of any drug may be different for different weight and symptoms. You can best use steam inhalation for your child at home. Protect your child from cold.

Tonsils help body, they are immune glands. Control diet and practise frequent betadine gargles after food. Because food particles stick to back of tonsils and cause frequent attacks.
