Is it fine to feed a 14 month baby with butter, ghee in the food? should the sweet intake be restricted too, though my baby enjoys sweet preparations.

Which oil and of which brand should we use to massage for our new born baby ?Please tell.
Any mild oil which suits to baby. Which dose not cause red spots / rash on the skin. Massage helps for mental bonding. So it is to be done by parents. If no oil suits, it is ok with no massage also.

My daughter who is now 6 months old doesn't like to drink milk. What should I do?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Don't force her, instead give whatever she likes (Breast Milk) and start gradual weaning with home diet. Remember she has mind just like you. Imagine how do you feel when some one forces you to eat against your will. Don't try to justify she doesn't know. Mind doesn't accept that

Pediatrician,
Pls lybrate doctors, suggest some milk and gluten free baby food both liquid and solid.
Breast and dairy milk is good and are gluten free. Avoid gluten containing product like wheat, rye, barley, and all their products. Gluten free products are fruit, vegetables, nuts, rice, beans and legumes. Gluten free diet can be well prepared at home. I do not prefer branded product so I do not name of market product. Pls check in the market.

Tips for Dads to Take Care of Their Baby

Tips for Dads to Take Care of Their Baby

Dads and moms should share in the responsibility in caring for their newborn baby.

Importance of Dad Care

Caring for their baby gives dad's a chance to bond with their baby and also provides rest, help and support to the mom who might be in great stress. It is important to be there for your wife and be an active participant in caring for your family. Care for your young one and take turns changing the diaper, watching the baby or feeding.

What dads can do?

Dads can get involved in the different activities like changing soiled diapers, massage and bathing or sponging, get his/her dressed, feeding the baby if on formula feeds, burping the baby etc. Rocking the baby to sleep and singing songs and lullabies gives you a different experience. Don't shy away from responsibilities. It is best that you be there rather than ignore your need.

Skin to skin contact (Kangaroo care)
Babies respond to touch. Kangaroo care is very helpful especially in premature babies. It helps in growth of baby. It helps in bonding of baby with father. Hold your baby tight against your skin. Let the hearts connect. It is a beautiful experience to hold God's creation in your hand. This is the best way to connect to your little one and make him feel special. The best thing about this activity is that more than the baby it makes you feel happy and complete.

Practice makes a man perfect!
The only way to learn how to care for a bay is by getting involved and get going. Don't hesitate. You may feel shy initially but once you start involving in your baby care, the experience of nursing a baby makes you more confident.

Share your experience in your group at home or office, you may find more practical ways for caring your baby. Be open to suggestions and try and incorporate the good ones.

It has been found that babies who are 'well fathered' tend to be more secure and confident in exploring the world around them. Be a father that is around to observe and nurture your kid, remember it's the childhood that one cherishes the most.

Meri beti ji ki 3 month ki hai vo down syndrome se hai hume kya karna chiye.
Down's syndrome is a chromosomal disorder. So no specific treatment. You can improve mentation and speech by stimulation. If any defects are they like cardiac, gastrointestinal etc they should be corrected. Prevent down's during next pregnancy by some tests. Down's children are loveable.
