Hello, Homoeopathy is the best and safest option for all the age group including newborn babies! So, give her Schwabe’s Alpha-CF, Alpha-NC and Biocombination-11, all of them after every 2 hourly for 4 days (mix 2 tablets in a sterilised bowl with your milk and then give to your baby). Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air (wrap a warm stole or muffler around neck). -Avoid excessive or rough use of your voice/ shouting. -Gargle with warm water and salt 3 times a day and take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -Take enough sleep and rest.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY CHILDS TEETH???

Ask Free Question
Kids have all their baby teeth by age 3. These are called Primary teeth. Baby teeth start falling out around age 6; that’s when the permanent, or adult teeth start coming in. gaps between baby teeth are normal. They make room for the permanent teeth. Most permanent teeth come in by age 13

Tips to keep kids teeth healthy and strong:

0-2yrs
• Wipe gums with a wash cloth after feeding to avoid plaque that can cause tooth decay
• Start brushing twice daily using soft bristle tooth brush once first primary tooth erupts

3-5years
• Start using fluoride toothpaste at age 3- use only pea- sized amount. Make sure your child spits it out after brushing
• Try to break thumb sucking and pacifier habits by age 4

6-9 years
• Start flossing as soon as teeth touch/ contact each other
• Until children are able to practice proper oral health habits alone, parents should help their child brush and floss twice a day

10-12years
• Require children who plays support to wear a mouthguard to protect their smile

13+ years
• Parents can encourage their teens by reminding them that a healthy smile and fresh breath will help them look and feel their best.

Quick tips
1. Schedule your first dental appointment before child’s first birthday.
2. Start visiting your dentist every 6 months.

It's normal. Don't bother about it just explain in simple way the true life after marriage. Rarely children put in some harsh objects which may create bad complication. Explain her. She is already adult and will understand it.

You have to check the thyroid status of the baby and if you give formula feed, give it only with spoon and not bottle feeding and give it after the breast is given.

Loperamide has many side effects and for me, it has hardly any useful role in controlling motion. Child is only 2.5 years and has many years for bowel training. Further bowel management depends on surgery performed for which attending surgeon is best person to guide.

Tandab chalati से यदि आपका अर्थ तांडव (शरारत)करने से है और उस से आपको परेशानी नहीं है और घर में बोलती भी है तो मेरी राय है कि उसे करने दो जैसा कर रही है। अभी वह केवल ३.४ की है समय पर सब ठीक हो जाना चाहिए।

I think it's vesico urteric reflux. As already pyelonephritis has developed, might need correction. Show to an urologist. Get dmsa scan to rule out scarring of kidney s. For constipation you must regularly use duphalac for many months.
