Respected Dr, we have 5 months' baby boy ,,,my wife has problem of low breastfeeding, she's providing powder prescribed as Child specialist,then shall we start boiled milk of cow...for his feeding?

Most parents believe that the breast milk is insuffiecient. Take weight of the child on a digital weighing machine prior to feeding and immediately after feed. This will convince you that child has got enough milk. . However if the milk is truly less, you can start undiluted, unsweetened boiled cow's milk with katori and spoon.

I am breastfeeding my 2 and a half month baby. He was born preterm, at 32 weeks. Does it cure him, if I eat ajwain when he gets cough & cold, and does he get cured if I eat heeng if he would be having gas problem or stomach ache. Is it ok for me/my health, if I eat ajwain and heeng daily.

You should take normal healthy home made food. Feed the child more frequentally if child is less than 5 months. Drugs may be helpful in some ladies in beginning, drugs like perinorm increases output.

Vaccination has nothing to do with constipation. No use of sugar syrup. Continue exclusive breast feed to her satisfaction. Motion once in 4-5 days or 4-5 motion in a day is normal, if baby is taking normal feed, passing normal urine and active.

Up to 6 months of age the baby should be given mother`s milk only, after completion of 6 months you can give home cooked soft semi solids like kheer, khichdi, rice with dal, etc.

Normally only breastfeeding is sufficient for the first six months of age. If your baby is not gaining weight (normally weight increase is 25-30/ day for first 3 months) then start formula along with breastfeeding. Don't give cow or buffalo milk. Start with 60-90 ml per feed. Don't use bottle.

You have not been given proper advice on breast feeding at the time of delivery. Switching back to breast feeding needs the help of breast pump, avoiding bottle and lots of patience. You can get back to me if you want further advice.

Ideally, the treatment involves both medicine and therapy. Since he is so young, it may be advisable to go for therapy first and on the advice of the professional you may chose to combine the two. If the condition is mild enough, then the therapy should suffice. So, why medication as the first line intervention! there are three areas of focus in therapy that needs serious work: concentration, hyperactivity, and impulse control. You will need to put him on a strict time-structure with planned activities which have reasonable and reachable goals. These must be monitored and assessed regularly to give you an idea of progress. There are concentration exercises in yoga, and the ear and eye exercise, that will benefit him a lot. Meditation will be tremendously useful to moderate his responses and to develop focus and good self-control, if you can make it age-specific. Emotional therapy will play a significant role to alleviate the impulsive behavior to a large extent but done at his level so that he can assimilate. If all this is done in a social context i. E. In groups or by mixing with other people, he will gain tremendously. You need to help him cooperate at all times. His diet could do with less carbohydrates and a good bit of fiber. It is best to avoid high-energy foods. Vigorous exercise through some play way method of at least 30 minutes a day will expunge the high energy levels. The treatment is long term and arduous but it is worth putting in this effort for a reasonable outcome.

Most often constipation in infants is not a seriously problem. You need not to anything as long as he is comfortable, meaning there is no vomiting, excessive crying, or refusal of feeds . Give multivitamin drops in case you are not.

If rota virus and pcv vaccination of 1.5 month was missed on due date than how many days we can have this.

MBBS,MD(PGI,Chandigarh)

If rota virus and pcv vaccination of 1.5 month was missed on due date than how many days we can have this.
It is always recomended to give the vaccines in time. If somehow it is missed it can be given upto 14 weeks of age and PCV you can give upto 5 yrs. But as early as you give it will protect your child more from those diseases.

It seems to me you have not given lesson of self feeding. At the age of one year, child picks up food and other things, it puts it in mouth. By four child should learn take thali or dish and chapati, veg. Curd etc, to eat himself with others. Now your child has to be taught this gradually. It will take some time. Let. Child do it himself or spoil food. He is bound to learn.
