It will not come again if you lose weight and have a healthy lifestyle and diet and exercise. Yes you can conceived naturally too. First periods after delivery can come as late as 9 month. But please rule out pregnancy if in doubt. Also if it does not come by 12 months c your gynecologist.

As evident by data given above,child seems to be severly malnourished,The child who is not eating sufficient food is likely to be constipated.Start giving semisolid diet at frequent intervals & gradually shifting to solid diet rich in proteins & fats.Expect good results in 3 months.As weight starts picking up all symptoms will fade up.

Yes you can eat any thing you like and cook at home specially, it is always better better to avoid commercial food, which more often than not contain maida and vanaspati ghee for certain reasons.

Give nutritious diet with good amount of protein rich foods like egg, fish, milk, nuts etc. Gaining more weight is not advisable as it is associated with many health problems.

I suppose baby is not having fever and taking feed well and if weight is about 3.75 to 4.0 kg, you need not to worry. There is no need of either ambrodil or antibiotic which are of no use. Vomiting after feed is usually regurgitaion. Burping and right posture is solution. Saline nasal drop is safe and may be effective.

Ideal Weaning food practice for babies after 6 months of age::

You can continue breast feeding till 2 yr of age but after 6 month of age you can add supplementary food in addition to breast milk..
1) rice water. Dal water
2) RAB,
3) fresh fruit juices
4) fresh vegetable soup
5)pasteurized top milk

Consistency of above mention food should be liquid initially and then gradually switch over to semi solids as age advances..
Give with spoon & bowel..
Bottle feeding must be stopped..

Your child is perfectly normal. If child is having recurrent infection that means problem is in hygiene. Tell me wash hands with soap before taking food. Use filtered or boiled water. Bath regularly. Keep distennce from any one who is suffering from cough or cold.

Walamycin should not be used without prescription. Moreover it is not used in GI infections, as it has no role.

Hello doctor, I have one month old baby. When I have taken him to pediatrician he told me that the sagittal suture is not yet closed to my kid which should be closed before birth. But when I searched in online I found, the sagittal suture does close at 29-35 years of age. Please clarify the same.

The sagittal suture is one method used to date human remains. The suture begins to close at age twenty-nine, starting at where it intersects at the lambdoid suture and working forward. By age thirty-five, the suture is completely closed. This means that when inspecting a human skull, if the suture is still open, one can assume an age of less than twenty-nine. Conversely, if the suture is completely formed, one can assume an age of greater than thirty-five

Definitely she can have tomatoes in curry, give ORS (WHO formula) instead of fruit juice, you can give raw fruits. Raw fruits have fibres which helps to hold water in intestine, so improves the consistency of motions and decrease frequency. She can have all natural foods.

Pediatrician, Mumbai
Check correct position while feeding. Head of babybaby should be kept higher than rest of body. If still the vomiting is there after each feed child needs to be started onon antiemetic and antifeflux medicine and also rule out gastroesophageal reflux.

We have six months old baby. Currently he is at my in-laws' place with my wife. I am planning to bring my family to Bangalore. We have a question regarding buffalo milk feeding. As we get the milk from a dairy here, is it ok to feed him this milk. My wife's milk production is not much, please advise on what things to take care regarding feeding our baby. Thanks in advance.

It is OK. As for choosing between cow’s milk and buffalo milk, cow’s milk is a better option to start with, as buffalo milk is rich in fat and difficult to digest. Indigestion can lead to diarrhea. While introducing milk, start by adding a few teaspoons of the pasteurized milk to soups, halwa and some room-temperature curd. If he/she tolerates this well, then over time the quantity can be increased with careful monitoring. When introducing buffalo milk, mothers must first boil the milk, let it cool and then remove the layer of cream before feeding the baby.
