Take 3 healthy meals in a day with 3 snacks in between, take 8-9 hrs sleep per day and take 'lactonic granules' along with cow's milk twice a day. Breastfed your baby more frequently.

Hi, I have 3+ years daughter. She eat very less and weak. Also she under weight. Could you please suggest how we can improve her eating habits. Thanks.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
It is more of an art rather than science. No medicines are going to help to improve appetite of active healthy child of which weight is not the only criteria. Take meals together in family along with the child. She will imitate parents. There is no instant way. Keep loving, stop forcing, she will pick up your habits.

No need to give any medicines and all mothers mistake possetting for vomiting and it is because the ges is not strong in infants and will stoop over 6 months or by one year. You keep monitoring weight.

Breast milk secretion is complet psyto-emotionally chemical event. Do not need to panic. Coconut water, onion, sauf are natural milk enhancers. There are milk enhancing drugs & powders available in market which can surely be guided by either pediatrician or obstretric doctor. Do not hurry to feed child anything else. Be commited to breast feed only with calm relaxed mind - getting stressed is natural - but time is the remedy to adopt new life in new world.

No special food will increase breasmilk. You meat nutritious foods and drink lot of water. Only suckling the baby and positive attitude towards breastfeeding is sufficient. Sleep pattern slowly change to nocturnal pattern. You shouldn't give any sedative.

I am having a baby boy six months 22 days old he is having a PDA size 3mm and having shrinkage in one of his bicuspid valve in heart. Is there possibility that PDA can be filled on its own. Kindly suggest what is required to be done.

Dear , since your child is almost 7 months old, there is no chance that his pda will close spontaneously. Also, you have mentioned some defect in his bicuspid valve. If left untreated, both may have serious repurcussions. You must consult a paediatric cardiologist and proceed according to his advice. The treatment may involve surgery or a interventional cardiologist.

Hi, my wife stopped breast feeding our daughter who is 16 months of old now. After 2 days she feels pain in her breast. Also seems like due to production of milk, it is getting harder. Is this a usual symptom? how long this continues? how to get rid of severe pain?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
It is due to collection of milk let her continue to feed the baby. What waas the reason to stop? pain can be relieved by applying local heat and pressing out milk. It more useful and practical to continue feeding. At this age bay needs semi solid home foods also in addition to milk" breast milk is the best milk for baby"

Even Children Can Have Acidity

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Children who have continuing recurrence of cough and croup could be suffering from stomach acid reflux problems.

Croup or ‘Kali Khansi’, as it is called in local parlance, is recognized by a loud cough that often sounds like the barking of a seal. It can cause rapid or difficult breathing, and sometimes wheezing. Croup is thought to be caused by a virus, but reflux acidity has been suggested as a possible trigger.

In gastroesophageal reflux disease, stomach acid causes swelling and inflammation of the larynx, which narrows the airway. It can trigger more swelling with any kind of viral or respiratory infection.

Identifying children with gastroesophageal reflux disease could help treat and improve recurring croup. It is unusual for a child to have three or more bouts of croup over a short period of time. These children need to be evaluated.

The same is true for adults also. Patients with non responding asthma should be investigated for underlying acidity as the cause of acute asthma.
YOu can ask me privately in any doubts

My baby is 5 and half months old. Her eyes are reddish color. Her weight also decreasing day by day.
Give genticin eye drops, two drops in each eye for 2 to 3 days. If the baby is drinking milk properly and sleeping passing urine and motion regularly, you need not worry regarding weight gain. They will grow. May be slow but they won't loose weight.

How can I change the habit of breast feeding of my child of 3 yrs? She is not taking any other foods. please help.

How can I change the habit of breast feeding of my child of 3 yrs? She is not taking any other foods. please help.
As long as she gets what she wants she is not even going to make an effort to try anything else. Besides, she has got addicted to breastfeeding. The only way out of this is to be firm and stop it altogether, no matter how much she pushes you. Offer solids at 4 hours intervals. Don't try feeding in between.

Hello sir/ mam. Please my three year old son dont want to take milk. He want to eat only roti all the time, i' m so worried about him please suggest me what I do?

Pediatrician, Pune
If he drinks 2 cups of milk in a day, it is more than sufficient, excessive milk reduces appetite, may cause iron defeciencies, he should eat rotis, and everything made at home, including dal rice vegetables, fruits, his weight is appropriate for his age, he is ok, you need not worry, we have come to be in a habit of unnecessary worry, try to avoid this, relax.

Go on trying to latch her on nipple for some time and then give her expressed milk before she is tired but not with bottle use spoon. Try yourself to pull nipple with your thumb and finger repeatedly if it is still persisting.
