It appears that your son remains alright in day time but does not sleep at night since quite long time and he closes his eyes while crying. Closing eye during cry is not abnormal. Most likely your child remains hungary. Try to feed him of his choice item.

u should plan to return to your pre-pregnancy weight by 6 to 9 months after delivery. Most women lose half of their baby weight by 6 weeks after childbirth (postpartum). The rest usually comes off over the next several months. eat to loose weight at every 4 hour interval. DO NOT skip meals. ...Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day with healthy snacks in between (rather than 3 larger meals). Eat breakfast. ... Slow down. ... Choose nonfat milk and dairy products. .. .When you reach for a snack, choose fruits and vegetables. .. .Drink 8 or 9 cups of liquids a day. breast feeding reduces moms weight

First you must acclimatise your baby to home available semisolids like rice porridge, kichri etc. Once in a week you can add one by one like fruit, mashed vegetable etc.

My daughter was born on 21.10. 2015. She is now two weeks old. For the first week she was breastfed, but now I realized that my wife is not producing enough milk for feeding my daughter. We changed to Lactogen-1 formula milk feeding from past five days. My daughter was fine feeding on formula milk till date but suddenly today she vomited twice. I am worried what caused the vomiting. Kindly suggest what to do in this case. Is it improper digestion due to formula milk. If yes then what should I do? Also kindly suggest frequency of feeding formula milk to my daughter and in what quantity.

There is nothing better than breastmilk for your baby. She should be breastfed for her best health, and there is nothing like less supply in a mother. The breasts produce as much milk as the baby requires. Formula feed is not only difficult to digest, it can also lead to stomach infections if not prepared with proper hygiene. I am a lactation counsellor. Please tell me more about why you feel your wife isn't producing more milk and maybe I can help her.

Oral drinking of water after 6 pm to be restricted. He is to be advised to go for toilet before going to bed & wake him up after 4 hours of sleep to go to toilet,like that you have habituate him failing which there are cases who have this complaint even at the age of 15 years which will be embarrassing to all.

Hello Dr. My daughter is 3 years old, she is very stubborn and often speaks very badly about intimate body parts. We have tried so many times to stop her but she continously embarass us on this issue. Day by day she is getting very hyper. We are very worried. Please guide us what to do ?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
One thing is certain, scolding & criticizing will worsen the problem. Love her as it is, then explain her your concern, it will probably be accepted. But it's a long journey, needs patience and faith. Examine from where she learned all this and take care in future. You will certainly be benefited by visiting senior experienced child psychotherapist. Hope this helps.

There is no problem if your baby has passed stool after two days of constipation. If there is no pain in abdomen, vomiting, distension and baby is taking feeds regularly. Home remedy for constipation is sugar syrup.

Maybe burping is not proper. You should burp the baby properly for at least 10 minutes after every feed. If baby is gaining weight adequately, there should be no serious issue. If no improvement, consult your doctor at the earliest.

13years and weight 70kg. You need to become his role model and help him in a strict diet control, exercises and yoga if possible. Diet wise cut down his high calorie diet intake for example highly fried food items, bakery items, packed food items, breads, chocolates, icecreams. Encourage him to increase salads, soups, fruits, buttermilk, sprouts, vegetable juices in his diet. Tell him to take small meals at small intervals. Do not remain hungry for long duration this will make him hungry and he will eat more. Drink lots of water. Take him for cycling, skipping, jogging, daily morning and evening walks and see you will definitely get results in losing weight and get back to me after a month.
