Feeding 4 biscuits of glucose or Marie in milk for 7 month old. Is it ok. Kindly advice.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For a 7 month old baby, giving biscuits is very bad. This does not provide any nutrition or any other benefit. In addition to mother's milk, other baby foods can be added like Cerelac or other available products. But Not Biscuits. Thanks.

Dandruf or seborrhic dermatitis is common in small babies. Often it needs no treatment. You can leave it alone and it will disappear with time. You just need to wash the baby's hair daily and keep it clean. Any baby shampoo is fine.

My 4 years son has tested positive for c. The size of induration is 25x30 mm. Is it confirmed TB. Or we should go for any other test ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
If Mantoux test is 25*30 mm induration after 48 hours in 4 year old,there is high risk of developing a disease if no focus is already suspected. It's a paediatrician's decision to start prophylactic chemotherapy or the proper treatment after examination

Care for New Born Baby

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad

Me Dr Sanjeev Kumar hoon, in Faridabad. Aaj hum baat karenge care of a new born baby.

Ek navjaat shishu kya hota hai?

Ek navjaat shishu wo hota hai jo Pehle 28 dino ka baccha hota hai, use hum navjaat bolte hai.

Navjaat baccho ko hum special kyu kehte hai?

Wo baby ki tendency hoti hai bohot jaldi infection hone ki, bohot jaldi shareer thanda padne ki, aur bohot jaldi unki jaan ko khatra bhi hojata hai.

Jab baccha paida hota hai to sabse pehle bacche ko maa ka doodh pilana chaie. Jab maa apne bacche ko seene se lagati hai tab maa ko is baat ka idea hojata hai ki baccha doodh theek se pee raha hai ya nahi pee raha hai. Aur isi se andaaza lagaya ja sakta hai ki mera baccha theek hai ya nahi hai.

Agar baccha maa ka doodh acche se pee raha hai aur ek bar doodth peene ke baad 2-3 ghante sota hai, 6-7 baar susu karta hai, aur agar bacche ka wazan theek se badh raha hai to iska matlab baccha bilkul theek hai. Aur bacche ki awaaz buland hai jab wo rota hai, iska matlab baccha theek hai.

Lekin agar baccha lazy hai, chidchida pan hai, doodth kam pee raha hai, tatti me khoon araha hai, neela ya peela pad raha hai, safed pad raha hai, iske liye doctor ke paas jana zaruri hai.

Jab maa bacche ko doodh pilati hai, kahi baar maa ko lagta ki mera doodh he nahi aarha hai, ya mere bacche ka pet he nahi bhar raha hai. abse important hai ki agar baccha 6-7 baar aur baccha ek baar doodh peene ke baad 2-3 ghante soe aur uthne ke baad agar baccha buland awaaz me ro raha hai, iska matlab baccha theek hai. Aur agar maa ko lag raha hai ki baccha pet bhar ke doodh nahi pee pa raha hai, tab wo ek kaam kar sakti hai ki jab doodh pilaya aur doodh pilane ke baad agar baccha sota nahi hai, sika matlab hai ki bacche ka pet bhara nahi hai. Iske liye sabse important hai ki maa ko khush rehna hai. Isme husbands ka role bohot important hai, jo ghar ka environment hai wo ekdam theek rehna chaie. Aur maa jab apne bacche ko godd me leti hai to use bhagwan ko thank you bolna chaie  ki," thank you bhagwan, tumne mujhe baby diya hai, mujhe doodh bhi dena". Jab maa aisa sochti hai, tab doodh badhta hai. Doodh maa ke stan se nahi brain se paida hota hai.

Agar maa acche se khae aur zada amount me paani peeye, to bacche ke liye doodh aram se ata rahega. Lekin agar fir bhi maa ko lagta hai ki doodh kam ban raha hai, to uske liye ek baar bacche ko doodh seene se laga ke pila de aur fir bhi doodh kam pade to chammach- katori se doodh pilade. Isse dheere dheere maa me doodh badhta jaega aur ooper ke doodh ki requirement bhi kam hojaegi. Bacche ka pet bharne lgega aur baccha fit bhi rahega.

Chote babies ke sath risk hota hai, thanda padne ka. Chote babies Kabhi-Kabhi 40 Degrees temperature me bhi thande pad jate hai. To iske liye sabse zada important hai ki bacche ko head se toe tak cover karke rakhna chaie. Topi zarur pehnani chaie.

Ek maa apne bacche ko touch karke he bata sakti hai ki bacche ko thand lag rahi hai ya nahi lag rahi hai. Agar maa ne bacche ko hath lagaya aur fir apne pet ko hath lagaya, agar dono garam hai, iska matlab baccha ekdam theek hai. Agar hath thanda hai, aur pet garam hai to matlab bacche ko thand lag rahi hai. Aur agar dono thande hai, to baccha serious hai.

Aaj kal sabke ghar me sari facilities hai, air conditioner hai, to aise me bacche ko garam rakhne ka sabse accha tareeka hai ki maa apne bacche ko seene se lgale aur baar baar doodh pilana. Maa ke doodh pilane se, maa ko bohot faede hote hai, jese ki maa ko cancer se bachaav hota hai, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, aur maa emotionally khush rehti hai.

Agar aap is vishay me kuch aur janna chahte hai to aap Lybrate ki website pe jaa kar, login in karke contact kar sakte hai.

Dear Doctor, Our son 06months old has not taken OPV 1 Hep-B 3 dose on completion of 06months. But when we had the vaccination after 3.5months from his birth, the nurse said that the 06th Month vaccination as stated above is also covered on that time. Hence we do not need to take the vaccination on completion of 06 months. Kindly advise should I take this month's due vaccination for our son. Many thanks

Hello. Can I give Pediasure nutrition powder to my daughter. She is one year 2 months old. Please suggest.
Talk to a healthcare professional about whether your child need diet evaluation and management, because pediasure only is not going to solve your concerns. Regard this product if your child is younger than 2 years of age. Pediasure products are not intended for infants younger than 1 year of age. According to the american academy of pediatrics, in india age recommendation 2 year or above, infants under a year old should be breastfed or fed an iron-fortified infant formula.

Thumb Sucking

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Thumb Sucking

Most children stop sucking on thumbs, pacifiers or other objects on their own between 2 and 4 years of age. No harm is done to their teeth or jaws until permanent teeth start to erupt. The only time it might cause concern is if it goes on beyond 6 to 8 years of age. At this time, it may affect the shape of the oral cavity or dentition.
Thumbsucking leads to Open bite, a high arched palate because of the pressure created in the mouth . This habit can also cause the maxillary central incisors to tip labially and the mandibilar incisors to tip lingually as the thumb rests on them during the course of sucking. Aside from the damaging physical aspects of thumb sucking, there are also additional risks, which unfortunately, are present at all ages. These include increased risk of infection from communicable diseases, due to the simple fact that non-sterile thumbs are covered with infectious agents, as well as many social implications. Some children experience social difficulties, as often children are taunted by their peers for engaging in what they can consider to be an “immature” habit. This taunting often results the child being rejected by the group or being subjected to ridicule by their peers, which can cause understandable psychological stress.

To prevent their children from sucking their thumbs some parents use bitterants or piquant substances on their child's hands.Parents could get a series of sharp prongs known as "hay-rakes" cemented to a child's teeth to discourage sucking

Praise children for not sucking, instead of scolding them when they do.
If a child is sucking its thumb when feeling insecure or needing comfort, focus instead on correcting the cause of the anxiety and provide comfort to your child.
If a child is sucking on its thumb because of boredom, try getting the child's attention with a fun activity.
Involve older children in the selection of a means to cease thumb sucking.
The pediatric dentist can offer encouragement to a child and explain what could happen to its teeth if it does not stop sucking.
Only if these tips are ineffective, remind the child of its habit by bandaging the thumb or putting a sock/glove on the hand at night.

Give them good nourishing diet prepared at home in routine including milk, seasonal fruits, vegetables. Avoid junk and sweetened drinks, toffees etc. It had been better, if you have given their age, weight and height.

Sir, my 4 year old son suffering from calcium (hypocalcimia - kenny-caffey) and he was given rocaltrol 0. 25mcg (calcitrol capsules) every day. Is there any treatment to come over this problem ? Is it required to continue this medicine throughout his life period.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Kenny-caffey syndrome type 2 (kcs2) is an extremely rare hereditary skeletal disorder characterized by thickening of the long bones, thin marrow cavities in the bones (medullary stenosis), and abnormalities affecting the head and eyes. Most cases are obvious at birth (congenital). The primary outcome of kcs2 is short stature. Intelligence is usually normal. Individuals with kcs may also have recurrent episodes of low levels of calcium in the blood stream (hypocalcemia) that is caused by insufficient production of parathyroid hormones (hypoparathyroidism). In most cases, kcs2 is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder. Being a genetic disorder complete cure may not be possible.
