Hi if baby doesn't poo for even a week it's normal but if baby is having any problem like vomiting, decrease milk intake, pain or straining while passing motion then you need to consult a doc.

My 2 years older son always not ready to take any type of food or milk fruits etc and always his stool is to hard what can I do?

He is suffering from constipation.  he should be on a good fibre rich diet. Give plenty of water.  regular laxative if needed along with a good diet plan. As constipation is a chronic problem in most cases and most common cause is habitual constipation.  You must ensure a regular bowel time after a drink irrespective of passage of stool. He should be sitting for sometime say 10_ 15 minutes in a fixed time daily in a Indian style toilet. She appears  to be a fussy eater. Most importantly you need to be patient with her. Don't shout or scream while feeding her. Try to make her feeding time fun or playtime. After not giving any food for 3 hrs at least make him sit with the food he likes (solid foods not pastes or liquids) with spoon and katori or fork. Let him at least play with the food for some time. If he likes milk a lot then try to give solid like plain rice, oats. Chatu. With the pediasure You can have a deal with him. He will take 1 sip milk and 1 bite of something  This way he will learn to chew Threptin  biscuits are good to taste and are rich in protein (casein) Avoid giving him chips fast food Makes small pieces of food  and ask  her to try just 1 bite. If he likes the taste she will have another. If he likes chicken. Give him chicken in different  ways. Introduce him to egg. Boiled or omelette whatever he likes. Play with him till he feels tired. Playing running will improve digestion. Don't loose temper You can give him  one egg a day Cucumbers made into small pieces will help  with problem of flatulence. Children have to deal with new  food, new habits. So they act out. Do not get flustered if he criesmakes a scene. Sit quietly, go to another room, ignore him. He will learn that bad behaviour  will not allow him to get her own way. I know it's very difficult but keep trying as that's the best you can give him. Pain  abdomen  may be due indigestion earmarked, gastritis. Good hand hygiene: Regular nail trimming Washing hand after each toilet visit. And before taking any food in any form Also take care of drinking water quality. Test Adviced: CBC with AEC Stool and urine R/E, M/E USG abdomen Share the reports if any Kindly do the follo You can check out the Health blog I manage with my wife. It has many helpful tips. The VIP Resource library gives you lifetime (free access) to many  childcare, parenting tips.

My baby is in 2nd month. In 1st month, I fed her every 2 hrs. Should I continue that? or what should be the frequency of feeding?

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Chandigarh
Kindly feed the baby on demand. There would be a phase in 24 hrs the baby will sleep for a longer duration like most adults. Rest make sure the baby must take feed at least 8 times a day.

To soothe sore nipples, you can apply a warm compress on the affected area. The heat from the compress can ease discomfort and aid healing. Dip a washcloth in warm water. Wring it out and then place it on your breasts for a couple of minutes. Do this at least 10 minutes before breastfeeding. Repeat this remedy several times a day until the soreness is gone. A warm shower or heating pad can also help alleviate the discomforts of sore nipples. Please follow the above for 1 week and revert back

After vaccination, fever and mild illness lasts only for few hours. Not taking feed is due to so many reasons like: heat waves, fever, chest infection, urine infection and all. Keep years baby cool if not feeding consistently better contact child specialist.

The big tummy is because of aerophagia - which is quite common at this age. Burping properly will help. No connection with mother drinking more water.

6 to 7 attacks are very common per year. As they have less immunity. Avoid antibiotics in simple common cold. Not to worry about common cold and cough.
