Is it necessary to vaccinate my baby (16 month old) with MMR and PCV booster injection? IMA vaccination card does not mention these vaccinations but their staff says that these vaccinations are private and mandatory. Although I have vaccinated my baby with Varicella and hepatitis A vaccines in private clinics which are not mentioned in IMA vaccination card. So please guide me about these MMR and PCV booster vaccines about their necessities.

My child of 6 years is not putting on weight for the last 3 years or so. His appetite is ok but suffers from allergy and respiratory problems from time to time . He is active however but will like him to add some kilos .

Average weight of child at 6 year is about 20 kg. If your son is around of this you need not to worry since he is active. You may increase some oily and protein in diet. Otherwise it is better to leave him on his own choice of nutritious diet. If he is suffering respiratory problem, consult doctor who after assessing his problem, he may advise if respiratory problem is to do any thing with his weight gain.

Just for the sake to say some thing, she is at lower range of average wt which is not abnormal. Ht is appropriate for her age. Bed wetting has nothing to do with it. Give her protein rich well cooked nourishing diet.

Hi such pains are usually common in this age group. Few things you have to keep in mind is regular deworming. If even after that his symptoms continue see what other associated symptoms are present. Sometimes when a child has common cold and cough they have something called mesenteric lymphadenitis which can cause similar kind of pain as you mentioned. Do not worry.

She might be having infection in lymph nodes. Proper clinical examination is required to decide if a course of antibiotics is required. There are other possibilities also, so delay in seeking doctor's opinion should be avoided.

I am sure very 1st time baby would have not demanded cerelac. Do not thrust cerelac on her. Leave her free to choose his diet made in home. She is now 16 months old and able to select or demand what ever she likes.

It's too much. Please rule out any disease. Diet is only way to reduce weight. Give her two+times food home cooked, no oil, contain ata, bajra, dal. No beard, no maida. Or market junk food. Weigh 15days.

Some anti epileptic drugs like valparin result in weight gain. If the child is seizure free for more than 2 years you can stop the drugs by gradually tapering.

I am married guy with a 4 months baby boy. My sex life was good for initial 2 years of my marriage (4-5 times a week) till we got the news of my wife's pregnancy. We avoided sex in first 3 months as per doctor's advice & then for following 3 months, we did occasionally (once a week). Then there was a complete pause of 6 months till the baby was of 3 months. On resuming sex, I am facing problems for which I need solution. I don't get erection strong enough to penetrate even after good foreplay & if we try harder for it then I end up ejaculating. We tried penetrating using oil as lubricant in semi-erect state but either erection is unsustainable or it ends up in premature ejaculation. Me & my wife love each other but this situation is affecting our relation. I can't fulfill her desires every time by foreplay. Also I started avoiding getting physical with her due to it. We try having sex hardly once a week but it leads to dissatisfaction. please help. Also I am ashamed to consult doctor face to face.

Erectile dysfunction is a serious problem in married life. U need to be patience for this. Treatment is needed. U need to avoid sex for 2 weeks atlst. For the first 7 days just hug her, kiss her don't touch each others private parts. Do it for regular. Then after 7 days try for sex. Before you prepared for sex have a deep breathing for 10 mins. Don't think too much about sex. Rather think about other things like a child. Mind and confidence is all you need to boost up. Exercise regularly or walks regularly. It will also be helpful. Contact me in private. Through Lybrate. There I can give you some more advise which will definitely work for your erection dysfunction. Also will prescribe some medicine. By proper homeopathic treatment you will be completely cure. Soo contact me through Lybrate.

I am suffering from dry cold since last month and also from cough. So tell me what should I do to release from cough.

I am suffering from dry cold since last month and also from cough. So tell me what should I do to release from cough.
Dear Lybrate User, *body should be kept warm especially feet, chest, throat and head. Sweating is very helpful. The simplest way to do it is drink hot spice tea or some other hot drink and lie down on the bed .Take some warm cover like blanket and let the body sweat for 15 to 20 minutes. *a glass of warm water mixed with one tea spoon of lemon juice and one tea spoon of honey can be taken 2-3 times a day. *case of dry cough especially if it trouble is during the night, take cardamom, dry ginger, black pepper and cinnamon in equal quantity, say 10 gms. each. Take white sugar or rock candy equal to the total weight that is 40 gms. Grind them and make a fine powder. From this take half a tea spoon ( about 3 gms.) twice a day with honey or warm water after meals. *Cold drinks, ice cream, sweets, fried foods, milk products like cheese, creams, yogurt etc. should not be taken. Hot milk without fat can be taken if boiled with a piece of crushed ginger. Half tea spoon of turmeric powder is good to mix with the milk. *you should avoid tomatoes, eggplant and bananas.

Usually baby remains hungry or may not be comfortable. Take care of hunger and look for comfort. Baby at this age expresses in this way.

Sir my baby (2 month) is still unable to hold and control his neck movement wht should I do.
Hello lybrate-user, its too early for your baby to have complete control of his/her neck. Neck holding usually is seen by 3 months of age and there may be still some head wobbling with complete control by 4 months. So do not worry às its completely normal and do support your baby's head while holding upright. Hope that helps.
