She need 1400calories per day divided in six three hrly interval self feedings. Giving special powder from market will spoil further. Firstly she must eat by her self. This is possible if you cook at home and put the food in front of her. No wonder she may remain hungry. By one to one and half child learn to eat by homself.

Personally I would say don't give bottle with breast. Most of mothers think that milk is insufficient. But it's not true. Weigh the child to find out adequacy of milk. And child should be fed every two hrly at two months. Breast should be given to child in consonance of his age in months. Three month old child is fed three hrly and. Six month old is given breast feed six hrly. Breast feed should be for 10-15 min. On each breast.

This weight is less than normal weight at this age. But ther is nothing to fear. You should not feed in bottle but feed with a spoon or baby sipper. Cerelac and other homemade semi solids can be started from 4th month onwards

Why to Fill Up a Missing Tooth?

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
A missing tooth can be responsible for causing different health issues. Along with these, a person loses his ability of chewing with missing teeth, develop problems related to speaking and his overall facial appearance also gets affected.

In case of a missing tooth or several missing teeth, it is best advised to get dentures fitted. Dentures are false teeth, which are fitted in the oral cavity in place of lost natural teeth.

Here are several reasons why it is important to fill up a missing tooth:
1. Shifting of tooth: when a tooth is lost, the surrounding teeth start drifting or moving in the open gap where the lost tooth used to be. The surrounding teeth are shifted out of the alignment. This affects the appearance of your face, and your teeth seem crooked and misplaced. It is necessary to replace a missing tooth with dentures in order to restrict the shifting before it is too late.
2. Tmj syndrome: after a tooth is lost and the surrounding teeth start shifting, the alignment is changed. This gives rise to problems with biting and creates issues with the jaws. The upper jaw and the lower jaw fail to meet correctly, and this causes strain and damage to the jaw joint. This phenomenon is called tmj syndrome.
3. Decay of tooth and gum diseases: after the shifting of surrounding teeth when a tooth is lost, the teeth alignment changes. This makes it difficult for a person to reach several areas in the gum with a toothbrush or floss. This makes plaque and bacteria accumulate in that area and they cannot be reached or cleaned. Tooth decay and gum diseases or periodontal diseases that are likely to affect those spots. These diseases and disorders cause further tooth loss.
4. Alteration in facial appearance: a missing tooth should be replaced properly and a dentist must make sure that the root of the missing tooth is removed. In case the root is not removed totally, bone deterioration is likely to occur. Bone loss occurs in the jaw area, and this may result in a change or alteration in your facial appearance. A timely replacement of a missing tooth will prohibit bone loss from the jaw area, and you will be saved from any kind of alteration in your facial appearance, which might affect your looks and self-esteem greatly.

A missing tooth should never be ignored and in case you lose a tooth, you should see a dentist as soon as possible. By filling up a missing tooth, you will be able to save yourself from several issues related to the mouth and gums.

My son is 13 years old. He suffered with cough frequently. When consulted a doctor he told that my son got tonsils. Taking antibiotics is temporary solution. And suggested better to do operation for that. My question is is there any alternative? After operation are there any consequences?

Nature and bouts of cough is not clear from description. A specialist is already looking. Just try saline nasal drops 2 drops in each nostril 3 to 4 times in a day. Some time nose blocked may cause cough.
