MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Mumbai
Hello. Starting at 6 months till 8 months baby should be given foods in paste form. You can give her rice moong dal powder in water or milk. You can also give her wheat/ sooji dalia. Soups such as palak or beet carrot soup can also be given. 3 to 4 serving of these food items should be given in a day. In between 2snacks such as fruits or biscuit can be given once or twice a day.

Your child seems to be suffering from allergic response. The best way to deal with allergies is to avoid the allergens. Any episode like the present one can be dealt with cetirizine. Warm regards.

Hello my son is 4 months old. He sleeps at night for 7 to 8hrs in one stretch but he does not pee while sleeping. Do I need to worry?

Normally babies pass urine even during sleep. If not passing make sure feeding is adequate. In 24 hrs he must pass urine 7-8 times.

Improvement in personal hygeine will result in fewer incidences of respiratory infections. Never share towels, handcurchiefs. Avoid personal contact with person having cough and cold. Frequent hand wash,avoid feeding bottle or sipper and thumb sucking will be very useful.

If cold n cough is without fever n there is no involvement of lung and baby is active, just saline nasal drops 4-5 times in a day is sufficient.

My daughter who is 2.5 years old put thread in her nose but no thread found by doctor in basic checkup what will we do?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Small objects like threads will not stay in the nose for long period. They usually come out while blowing. If the doctor has confirmed it's absence you can ignore. If any blood starts coming from that nose better you show to another ent surgeon.

Hi, I have a 4 month old girl child. Please suggest how to care for and how to treat for best grow. And suggest any books, literature or tools which help us better. Thanking you.

General Physician,
To give you a good guidance I need to know the present weight. Weight alone is not the indicator of good health. You can continue to give breast milk and add home made semisolids like raggi porridge, mashed banana and slowly introduce all the homemade foods. You need to be in regular touch with me so that I can personally interact and guide you as this is very interesting part of caring for babies, I like. Ask me privately.

The main issue of overweight people is their apetite. As they have increased appetite, they are not able to do dieting adequately, as a result, they are unable to lose fat. Ayurveda has breakthrough remedy for this. This remedy reduces apetite and make dieting as easy as a child's play. It works by converting extra fat to glucose and ensures complete consumption of glucose. This is how this medicine reduces hunger and increases energy levels.

I am 30 years old. I am having a baby of 4 1 / 2 months. I am breastfeeding her but I have a doubt whether she is getting enough milk or not .my baby's weight is 5.7 kgs. So my neighbours are suggesting me to take bread & milk for more milk production. Is it safe & healthy for me to take bread & milk daily twice. Please give me the right diet pattern to increase my milk production.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Your baby's weight is normal according to the age. Signs of adequate milk production are adequate weiight gain, 6-8 times passing of urine and adequte sleep. Drink enough water. If you take good food millk production will be good. No harm in taking milk and bread.

For people suffering from respiratory allergies and infections, steam inhalation should be followed as a routine. Even when you are well, taking steam for 5-10 min twice a week will ward off many potential episodes of illness.

Hi, I have new born daughter borned on 01/01/2016. Since last 40 days she is not eating well (breast feeding). When ever her mom feed her she starts crying and refusing to eat. After several attempts she is eating but after crying. We checked with 2 pediatrician and both said she is fine as she is.

Parameter to assess adequate feed to baby is weight gain. If child is not taking feed for last 40 days, she either must have lost weight considerable or may not gaining wt. Now she is 3 month 7 days old and her expected wt must be about 5.5 kg. If she is around this wt, you need not to worry.Whatever feed she is suckling, that is sufficient for her. 2 pediatricians have already checked baby who found baby fine.
