My baby 11 months old & still weight is 6 kgs only can any one please suggest for weight gain Present baby eating below foods: rice with Dal & rice with tamarind Bread in morning & mother milk feeding only Out side milk was not drink.

If baby is fed properly since birth, 6 kg must be at the age of about 5 months. It is obvious that either baby has not been fed since birth or he has not been given proper food at the start of weaning. Proper diet details is lacking in your description. Any way, give him solids food well cooked and prepared at home. Add complementary dairy milk three times in a day to his requirement. I am sure baby is not suffering from any ailment.

My daughter 8 months old is teething has 2 teeth' s now but is not gaining weight. She was 3. 3 kg at birth and now she is 6kg. Is this normal. What should I do? she is not eating anything lately

Pediatrician, Pune
Her weight is ok for her age, they can be some change in feeding habits, when babies start teething, just a little patience and enough support to the baby is required.

Hello Dr. My daughter is of 7 months and my problem is that my daughter tongue is always white due to milk how I can clean her tongue.

Its normal for babies to have the deposits of milk. You can take a very soft cloth dip it in luke warm water and gently wipe the tongue its not necessary that you should perfectly clean its just an hygiene practice.

Feed more frequentally for 10 minutes on each breast may increase milk. Plenty of water may also help. You child is now four moths and hence you can add very thin soup of cereals if weight gain is not proper.

11 Months Baby has got cold and because of that it seems his nose got blocked which gave him a sleepless night since he is not able to breathe easily. Is it something which I need to meet a doctor immediately or its normal like as we adults get cold and nose blocked with cold. Is there any home remedy to try out.

Usually symptomatic treatment is used for all presumed viral infections. Saline nasal drops, cleaning the nostrils, and increasing the humidity of the room with a vaporizer or humidifier would make the child comfortable.

I skipped my baby girl polio injection can I give that vaccines two months after the date.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Ponda
Ipv (injectable polio vaccine) dose is to be given at 8 weeks and 14 weeks (goigovt of india, 6 weeks, 8 weeks and 12 weeks (indian academy of pediatrics) booster at 18- 24 months. At present in india there is shortage of ipv across the country so 8-12 weeks schedule has been suggested by goi. You can give second dose later but as you have not mentioned age of baby it's difficult to tell how long you can delay it. Generally delay upto 8 weeks is ok.

Sir, I have twin (Boy & Girl) born on 02.05. 2015. They are taking Breast feeding & Pronan 1. But, sometimes they after feeding hiccup. Is it normal? We use to give them Boil water after cooling. After taking the water the hiccup stop. Is it correct method?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Hiccups occur due to irritation of diaphragm after feeding. I think you are over feeding. You can feed only with breast milk and you shouldn't give water either boiled or not boiled.

I have a female child about 16 month she has bow legs is it curable by physiotherapy or by any surgery.

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Hello lybrate-user, bow legs is usually a sign of rickets in children that is correctable with adequate calcium supplements along with vit d intake. I would suggest that you consult a pediatrician for the same so they can look for other signs of rickets too to start her treatment with vit d and calcium. In the meanwhile you could let her sun bathe, in the morning hours preferably and give her egg, fish, milk and other dairy products to provide her with adequate dietary sources to replenish her with good nutrients.

My Daughter 19 months old, started high fever for 101 degree two days ago. Consulted Paediatrician and Medication started with P125, Sinarest (both at different time) levolin and Fabilac. But she is getting high fever often with a light shiver, body get high heat but no all over, below abdomen it is chill, it varies in upper body. No Diarrhoea, Vomit (only water) was twice at the time of shiver. Within 2 hours she is normal. PD says it would be there till Friday. But doubt about the high fever but temperature varies, esp head get too high temp and her eyes blinks erratically. Is it a viral fever or anything else.

MD Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
Generally a viral fever may last upto 4 - 5 days and in rare cases can last upto a week also, keep giving paracetamol evry 4-6 hours so that temperature is under control. If fever goes beyond 4-5 days you can get few blood test done to rule out any bacterial infection, if its bacterial infection, need to start on course of antibiotics which your pd will prescribe accordingly.
