If your daughter complains of pain in anus, it may be due to hard stool. Give her fibrous food and plenty of water. If it is abdominal pain before passing stool, it in normal.

A baby should be given breast milk exclusively for 6 months. No need of giving powder milk or cow's milk. A breast milk is sufficient energy wise and nutrition wise uptil 6 months. If your breast milk has reduced substantially and your baby is losing weight only then you can about top feeds like formula or cow's milk.

Is it fine to feed a 14 month baby with butter, ghee in the food? should the sweet intake be restricted too, though my baby enjoys sweet preparations.

General Physician,
You can safely add small amounts of ghee butter etc. Make sure not to make your child obese. It is a big health problem in children" too much of anything is bad" you know happy parenting.

How to Dry and Comb Your Baby's Hair?

How to Dry and Comb Your Baby's Hair?

How to Dry Baby's Hair?

Baby towels often have a hood attached to it that can be used to gently blot your baby's hair. Do not rub as the baby's hairs are fine and very delicate and vulnerable to damage. Also, never try to blow-dry a baby's hair, as babies' skin is very much sensitive than an adult's skin and can be very easily burnt. Their hair also dries very fast on its own.

How to Comb Baby's Hair?

Comb your baby's hair with a soft-bristle brush or a tooth brush that won't snag on tangles or pull your baby's hair. Avoid headbands or ponytails, as they pull your baby's hair back too tight, which can damage hair.

Cradle Cap-Should I worry?

Cradle cap refers to the fleshy, red flakes on the scalp of baby. This is not harmful but some may be bothered by it.  Before a bath, massage  a little bit of coconut oil  into your baby's scalp to loosen the dry skin. Gently rub the oil into your baby's scalp with a ultra soft brush or wash cloth to release the flakes. Always wash your baby's hair with a gentle baby shampoo. Cradle cap should get better on its own. If it sticks around or spreads to the face of baby, or neck or other parts of the body, you should see your doctor.

What Oil should I Apply on My Baby's Hair?

Many new parents try to apply baby oil in the newborns scalp under the impression that it will lead to hair growth. This is a biggest misconception. Baby oil actually causes dryness of the scalp and clogs the pores of the head. Often the cause of cradle cap in babies is the usage of the baby oil. For healthy hair growth it would suffice coconut oil is applied onto your infant's hair and scalp.

When should I Plan the First Haircut?

There is no particular set time for a first haircut as it will not harm hair growth of the baby. Whenever you feel your child needs a trim, you should go ahead and get it done.

Why my Baby has Bald Spots? What Should I Do?

Sometimes babies have bald spots on their head because children lie in the supine position most of the time. Encourage the "tummy time" when your baby is awake, to allow their head to round out and prevent bald patches.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized dermatologist and ask a free question.

Your son is too young. He does not require any treatment. Some children get their hair later after they grow a little. You can shave his head more frequently every 6 months.

Hello. Good evening. It is better not to use any powder to the body. Initial treatment consists of use of emollients (cold creams). Better not to keep the body dry. If this does not help then further treatment measures become necessary.

A normal newborn baby should never be put in nursery but advised rooming in that is staying with the mother soon after the birth of baby. The process of suckling the mothers breast must be initiated within half an hour after birth. The early baby is put on breast greater is chance of successful lactation. It is most unfortunate that nursing homes still have the primitive idea of keeping normal healthy baby in nursery. Well in your case it is breast engorgment that can be tackled with frequent hot foment at ion and frequent suckling of breast by baby. Family support is very important. I am sure by this simple practice mother shall no longer have breast engorgment and baby shall be put on exclusive mothers milk. Best wishes.

You have not mentioned her birth weight. Babies will gain 500 gms in the first 3 months. If your baby has gained this weight, you need not worry. Give only mother's milk and vitamin d supplements.

Hi My son is 5 months old, We had echo test and he have Bicuspid Aortic Valve with normal biventricular function. Is there any chances or possibilities that it will resolve automatically?

Bicupsid aortic valves means, that your son was born with two leaflets in the aortic valve instead of the normal 3 leaflets. It cannot resolve, it is just that he will have these 2 leaflets instead of 3. Biscuspid aortic valve is prone to damages and degeneration faster as compared to a normal valve, so you should get him evaluated every 2-3 years with a Echo under the supervision of a cardiologist, so that when the denegration happens it can be detected timely and followed up. Your child can have a normal childhood so do not panic.

If he is given bottle feed also it can cause nipple and breast confusion and stop bottle and give breast milk only . Refusal to feed can also be a sign of infection and need to see if he has other symptoms also

Your daughter who at 13 years age is overweight needs a proper diet, exercise and counseling. You can consult a dietician to start her on a proper diet along with walking in the morning and evening. She may need some supplements and protein powder so that she does not become giddy. As per her weight she needs around 3.5 liters of fluids which includes water, green coconut water, nimbu pani without sugar, green tea and soup. If she has this low carb, no sugar diet you will get good results. She also needs to learn yoga so that her menstrual cycle starts.
