Try to keep baby warm with use of wollen caps, socks, and gloves. Use simple nasal saline drops for blockade and steam inhalation is self sufficient and use of antiallergics and antibiotics should be restricted. Some children require bronchdilators and mucolytics. Some children have immunodeficiency and need thorough medic al checkup for proper treatment.

This condition is called undescended testes and if not corrected it can lead to cancer. Surgical correction has to be done and cost depends on the hospital and surgeon Undescended testes are associated with reduced fertility, increased risk of testicular germ cell tumors and psychological problems when the boy is grown. Undescended testes are also more susceptible to testicular torsion (and subsequent infarction) and inguinal hernias. Without intervention, an undescended testicle will usually descend during the first year of life, but to reduce these risks, undescended testes can be brought into the scrotum in infancy by a surgical procedure called an orchiopexy.

If you have started bottle feeding, then she has chosen the easier alternative and not taking breast feeds, giving breast feeds is the best option for babies at least till 1 yr of age.

If his weight is normal for age. Relax. Try giving foods with different tastes. Do not force feed. He will start eating.

To advise, it had been better if her height and weight is known. Leave her at her liberty to eat whatever she wants. Don't thrust your chice on her.

It could have been better if baby's gestation age mentioned. From wt gestational age appears 31 weeks, short of 9 weeks. Thus consider age of baby as 5 months. For this age wt is not poor. However Gradually increase feeding.

Concept is demand feeds. So if child is demanding. Despite of adequate feeds supply. Mom shall feed. However signs of adequate milk supply is. Initially heavy breast gets weightless after properly fed baby. And baby gets at least sound sleep of 2 hours approx. So if you have above signs just don't worry. Your baby is doing fine.

Give proper nutrition with adequate calories, protein, carbohydrates and minerals to allow proper growth. These children are prone to poor growth. Look for any feeding problem like vomiting if any.

My 50 days baby is not taking mothers milk continuously. Can we give her some baby food.
The only food that is allowed to be given to a child till her is 4 months completed, is milk. If there is not enough breast milk, you can give him other milks--formula or cow's milk or whole milk. But you cannot give him any other food. Of course, you should not starve him and you need to give him some supplement. You can try with formula or cows mild. Give him whichever suits him best.
