Hi doctor. Is lactogen safe for new born babies. My baby weight was 4.25 kg while delivery. Now it's 4 kg. My feeding is not sufficient for him it seems. So if it cries in hungry, we give lactogen often. Is it safe or it has side effects?

Babies tend to loose about 10% of their birth weight in 5-7 days which is soon regained. If child is still loosing weight then you may have to supplement the feeds. Though lactogen is safe it's not best food for babies. Best is breast feeding only. Drink plenty of water, eat healthy diet, relax and keep yourself active and mobile. All these things help on increasing milk outflow. And of course breast feed the baby every 2 hrs. Absolute no to bottle feeding. Add on feed should be given with katori spoon.

My 7 month old son having mucus, occasional pus cells and bacteria in his stool. Kindly suggest what to do.
Even though very rare, milk protein allergy can also happen in exclusively breastfeed babies. Consider cutting down all dairy products in your diet for few weeks to a month - milk, yogurt, ghee or butter, beef, biscuits, or anything that can contain bovine or milk products, and also common allergens such as eggs, wheat, peanuts - and see how it goes.

These milk teeth will be replaced by permanent teeth. So there need not be any worry. Try giving logical syrup 5 ml once daily.

IMA vaccination card does not mention these vaccinations but their staff says that these vaccinations are private and mandatory. Although I have vaccinated my baby with Varicella and hepatitis A vaccines in private clinics which are not mentioned in IMA vaccination card.

Nature's Cavity Fighter

BDS
Dentist, Mumbai
Nature's Cavity Fighter

Fluoride is a mineral that helps fight tooth decay. It is found in public water supplies, toothpaste and many other dental products.

Often called, “nature’s cavity fighter,” fluoride helps repair the early stages of tooth decay even before the decay can be seen. Research shows that fluoride helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that cause cavities. When you brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, use other fluoride dental products, and drink water with fluoride you are preventing cavities and strengthening your teeth’s outer surface, called enamel.

If you have a good chance of getting cavities, your dentist can apply fluoride to your teeth during your dental visit. Your dentist might also tell you to use a special fluoride rinse, paste or gel at home

You have not mentioned height. Birth weight etc. First rule out pathological causes n get tested. Like hemogram. Lft. Kft. Xray wrist for bone age. Tft. Anti ttg n s. Ig a. Rule out systemic disorder. If all of these are normal then show to an pediatric endocrinologist. Regarding diet. Everything you eat should b given.

10 Foods for Healthy Teeth

10 Foods for Healthy Teeth

Dental care is of utmost importance. Poor dental health can cause you several problems, from a mild toothache to severe pain. Here are 10 foods which will help you maintain your healthy teeth. Read on to find out more about it:

  1. Cheese: Cheese, particularly aged cheese like Cheddar, Swiss and such are beneficial for your teeth. They increase the pH scale in your mouth and effectively prevent tooth decay. It also consists of protein and calcium, nutrients required for strengthening your tooth enamel.
  2. Yogurt: Like cheese, yogurt also contains calcium and protein for tooth enamel. Probiotics or the beneficial bacteria present in yogurt are good for the gums as well.
  3. Leafy Vegetables:  Spinach and kale promote oral health. They contain calcium, which is good for your tooth enamel. They contain folic acid, a B vitamin which has a lot of health benefits and also helps to prevent gum disease.
  4. Apples: Apples contain high fiber and water, which are beneficial for your teeth. While eating an apple, a lot of saliva is produced which washes away the bacteria present in the mouth.
  5. Carrots: Carrots are also crunchy like apples and also contain high fiber which is beneficial for teeth. They also contain vitamin A which is also highly beneficial.
  6. Celery: Celery contains vitamins A and C which are very beneficial for the gums. They are also crunchy and hence help scraping away bacteria and food particles from your teeth.
  7. Almonds: Almonds are a great choice as they are low on sugar and have high content of calcium and protein.
  8. Strawberries: Strawberries are very beneficial for your teeth. Strawberries consist of vitamin C, different antioxidants and malic acid, which help in naturally whitening your teeth.
  9. Garlic: Garlic contains a substance called 'Allicin' which has strong anti-mycobacterial properties, and is thus beneficial for your teeth. It helps to prevent periodontal disease and fight tooth decay.
  10. Meat: Meat in general is beneficial for maintaining healthy teeth. Meats consist of a lot of protein, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients which are important for healthier teeth.

The baby is safe after OPV too. IVP is a recent trend and the vaccine is running in shortage. In some government setuo it may be available. Don't worry if it is not given.
