Hello, What her Paediatrician says about her? Give her homoeopathic medicines which are pretty safe to give children and also will shows changes soon in many such cases. But give her details. Medication: Baryta Carb. 30/ thrice daily and Biocombination-21/ thrice daily. Give these for 4 weeks first.

Dear Doctor, Our son 06months old has not taken OPV 1 Hep-B 3 dose on completion of 06months. But when we had the vaccination after 3.5months from his birth, the nurse said that the 06th Month vaccination as stated above is also covered on that time. Hence we do not need to take the vaccination on completion of 06 months. Kindly advise should I take this month's due vaccination for our son. Many thanks

Yes it is safe above 2 month age. Only precaution is to avoid effects of high cabin pressure. You can eliminate that effect by giving" artificial nipple -soother" and or breast feed the baby during take off. Have a nice journey.

During the 1st month of age, I fed my baby every 2 hrs in a day. She is in 2nd month now. Do I continue feeding like this? or what should be the frequency of feeding?

General Physician,
There is no rule to feed by clock. If the baby demands feed you can give whenever bay cries for milk. This is called demand feed. There are many things to take care especially till the first birthday.. For which you ask me privately in this site.

It seems that your child is very much dependant on you. You can try few steps Leave him on his own at home while keeping an eye from distance. Let him learn to defend himself. Don't promise him any thing for going to school. Once he does not cry that day reward him with toy or chocolate. Convey him that everyone must go to school for fun and activities.

Understanding Child Medicine Dosage and Administration

DNB (Pediatrics), MBBS
Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Understanding Child Medicine Dosage and Administration

Giving a child medication can be a challenging job and one that many parents dread! Wrong dosage can create a havoc and lead to unnecessary complications or the problem not getting treated at all. So make sure you give your child the proper dose. 

Here is a small guide that will help you understand more about dosage and administration of medicine for children:

  1. Dosage: Usually, most pharmaceutical companies print the dosage as per the age or the weight range of the child. This is true mainly for paediatric drugs. Yet, there are other ways of calculating dosage as well. You can divide the age of the child (in months) by 150 and multiply the sum with the average adult dosage to compute the dose that the child should get. 
  2. Frequency: Also, always speak with a paediatrician to find out how often a medicine must be administered. The label will usually have this information, but it is always best to mention the exact symptoms and ask for the frequency. 
  3. Instruments: Child medicine usually comes in liquid form for easy ingestion. You can use a wide mouthed calibrated syringe for administering the medicine, or you could use a spoon, or even the measuring cup that comes with the medicine. The baby's bottle or a dropper can be used for infants as well. Take care to watch for signs of choking and administer the medicine in one dose broken up into smaller doses to avoid the same. 
  4. Storage: Ask your doctor about storing the medicine at room temperature or in the refrigerator as this will affect the efficacy of the medicine.
  5. Administration: Remember to find out if the medicine is to be administered before or after the child has had a feed or a meal. Then, wash your hands and prepare the child by ensuring that he or she lies still without any squirming. Make the child comfortable about the idea of taking medication and keep the head propped up. Talk to distract the child and if need be, practice sucking it in so that the child avoids choking. You can mask the unpleasant taste of certain medicines by keeping a glass of juice or candy nearby.
  6. Missed Doses: If your child throws up a dose, or you miss one, do not give a double dose. Instead skip and give it later.

Take due precautions when you are administering, storing and measuring the medicine for your child as this could have an impact on how the child reacts and heals.

Though it's normal if weight is appropriately increasing, you can refuse it by proper burping. After every feed burp the baby for about 20 min.

Please use home cooked semi solids like sooji, daliya, khichdi, daal chhaval, etc. Daal pani has no nutritional value so don't use it similarly fruit juices are not recommended, use mashed fruits. Add oil or ghee in diet to increase taste and caloric value, curd you can use it. Is very good for everyone.

Sucking finger at this age indicate that baby is either not being breast feed properly or not on breast feed. Otherwise baby may continue sucking now and then but take care of hygiene.
