After the age of six months, babies need complementary food along with breastmilk. Fresh, home cooked foods which have a thick, soft consistency are best for babies when you start complementary feeding.

Green tea is found to have catechins and polyphenols which are excellent antioxidants and prevent the body from free radical damage and helps to detoxify. Green tea is less processed than black tea and hence have higher amount of antioxidants. It has anti viral and anti bacterial effect and prevents plaque formation in the mouth. It helps to reduce bad cholesterol, improves good cholesterol and keeps blood pressure in check. It prevents formation of new cancer cells and destroys the harmful ones thereby protecting the body. It controls blood sugar levels and prevents heart diseases. Retards aging process and improves skin texture and complexion. Improves digestion, prevents gas formation and helps in weight reduction. It has mild bowel stimulating effect thereby preventing constipation. It helps to get rid of headache and tiredness which is a common problem in daily life. It improves immune system and prevents the body from infection like cold, cough etc. Its best to replace your coffee with a cup to green tea as coffee can dehydrate you and have a host of unhealthy effects on your body. Instead rehydrate your cells with a cup of green tea powerpacked with antioxidants.

It has very negligible amount in your breast milk. Your baby might be slightly lazy but its a transient effect, no long term side effects has been reported. Therefore, You may continue to breast fed your baby. If you are much concerned.

You can use antibiotic eye drops 5-6 times daily for 2-3 days (tobrex eye drops) if she doesn't get relief within 2-3 days consult local Opthalmologist, please don't use mother's milk to eyes to get relief from watering & discharge, with regards

It is important to clean the spoon well with a good detergent every time before use. There is no need to sterilise it. It is necessary to wash your hands nicely before every feed.

I am having a 3 years old daughter, who was recently admitted to Hospital due to Nonobstructive refluxassociated chronic pyelonephritis. The doctors have given medicine and regular check up at intervals are being carried out also. But, even after so much of medication, we are unable to remove the constipation. Any suggestions on this issue as to how to resolve the problem.

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.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Depends on what medicine you are taking. But generally there are no long term effects of adhd medicines. Atomoxetin can effect liver function tests but it is reversible on stopping the medicine. Methylphenidate is safe and has no long term effects. Regarding spine block injections kindly discuss with an orthopedic surgeon.

Hi my children s are active and healthy. My son is 7years weight 20kg. My daughter 9years 30kg. Just want clear that they are in normal weight or abnormal any healthy drinks for childrens and as well as for me with milk.

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user, the weight parameters of both your children are in the normal range. Since your daughter maybe approaching the pubertal age group soon, that's when the growth spurt happens so make sure you give a healthy balanced diet comprising of more of proteins like milk and milk products, soyabean, eggs, paneer etc in their daily meals. Also exercising is a must. 3 major meals and two snacks will be helpful in providing adequate nutrition. You could give vitd and calcium supplements to meet the daily requirements. Hope that helps.

Babies start standing with support by 9 months & without support by 9 to 12 months. By 13 months they should be able to walk without support. 1 or 2 months delay is not at all a problem.

My 1 year old son goes to day care. I am working and I have heard that day care/creche gives sleeping pills to babies. Please tell me how can I assure that my baby is not getting these pills. I will be back home by 6 in evening. He will be active for sometime and then have milk and sleep. Please help me to know that I am not risking my son's health.

Now this is an eye opener that babies do get sleeping pills in creches, you have to keep an eye on such creches and report to appropriate authorities if you have definite proof, better be careful and spend a day in the creche to find the daily routine going on there.
