My baby (girl) is just one and half month old. Now she is given dexolac premium (other than mother' s milk). Should I continue the same brand for 6 months? or I can change it to nestle nan 1 or lactogen 1?

Pediatrician, Pune
Why not continuing with exclusive breast milk, what was the need to change the milk, mother' s milk is the best for the baby, the baby requires nothing but the best.

You need to train baby to accept solid food. Dietary discpline is important & never succumb to undue demands , never offer him replacements of a home made wholesome diet. Have patience he will take normal diet as hunger is bigger than tantrums.

I am having a 3 years old daughter, who was recently admitted to Hospital due to Nonobstructive refluxassociated chronic pyelonephritis. The doctors have given medicine and regular check up at intervals are being carried out also. But, even after so much of medication, we are unable to remove the constipation. Any suggestions on this issue as to how to resolve the problem.

I think it's vesico urteric reflux. As already pyelonephritis has developed, might need correction. Show to an urologist. Get dmsa scan to rule out scarring of kidney s. For constipation you must regularly use duphalac for many months.

By this age baby must have started walking a few steps. Either he has no been trained even to stand or there is some developmental problem. Get him assessed by pediatrician. His wt is near to normal for his age. Give him good nourishing home made diet rich in protein, green vegetable and fruits.

My daughters age is 11 years .she attained puberty today on 3rd October 2016. I just wanted to know what is the correct age for puberty. And what diet should be given to her in her first periods. As the bleeding is very little. Is it normal? Could you please provide me with the do's and don't for first timers.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
She is early in her first period. Usually girls get their first periods after 13 years of age. But nowadays getting early puberty is common. There is no need for specific diet during the menses. But make sure to gives foods like dates, jaggery, etc. Also, sometimes during menses, girls crave chocolate. It helps with the cramps. If she is having cramps, put a hot water bag on your belly to relieve pain.

Yes bottle feeding is fraught with many dangers and you are advised to give only breast milk til the age of 4 months (at least) and if you must give other feeds give ti with a spoon or filler after the breast feed.

My son is 1 month and 16 days old. Last few days ago we saw some little drop of blood in his stool. Then we went to doctor. He advised for his stool test. We did his stool test and found mucus, pus cell is 10-12/hpf and occult blood is negative. After seeing the stool test report Doctor said, there is an infection in his stool. Dr. Prescribed Omnix-50 (antibiotic) and Gut-Ok twice a day for five days. After completion of medicine I did another stool test at another lab and found mucus is still present, pus cell is negative, occult blood is negative. After seeing the second stool test report doctor said now there is no infection. Then we told him he has completed all medicines in time but we saw little drop of blood in his every stool when he passes till day. Then Doctor told us, there is no blood in his stool. Actually doctor says there is no blood but we say there is blood. I want to know Is there any blood in his stool or not? If there is blood then what can we do now and if there is no blood then what is this red little drops which look like as same as blood. please reply……

Get stool test done for presence of occult blood when you notice blood & include blood part of stool. If stool is positive for blood, check color of blood, if it is bright red it is coming from rectum or anus. If it is black blood is from intestines. Treatment is entirely different in two situations. Let us know we will help you out.

Hi doctor. My 8 month old daughter has a running nose and due to that she can't breath properly during night time and hence she cries a lot. We give nose drops but it doesn't help much. Please advice what to do. Thank u.

General Physician,
Try giving t-minic drops 0.25 ml thrice daily and report online privately. He may need antibiotics if there is fever and he refuses to feed and is looking sick. Where are you living, so as to suggest l local foods. Ask me privately and remain in touch. Regards.

My son got an episode of febrile seizure (30sec to 1 min duration) at 18 months. Later, the doctor advised for immediate fever medication and tepid sponging whenever he develops fever. Now, at 21 months, we took him to the hospital because of fever again (no seizure), doctor adviced to give him frisium also whenever he develops fever. Frisium 5m bad as divided doses. I want to know if there are any side effects for frisium and will it effect the extremely active nature of my son.(read online). Also, do febrile seizures cause any permanent problem and will he become more prone to epilepsy later in life? kindly help!

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology

A febrile seizure, or febrile convulsion, is an epileptic fit with a high body temperature. There is no serious underlying health issue. Occur 6 months and 5 years. These seizures are very short lasting. Baby is normal after that completely. You are doing well in tepid sponging, also give paracetamol 15mg/kg. Diazepam pediatric suppository may be used at the onset of convulsions, and seizure can be controlled using diazepam iv. Many physicians are also using frisium as a precautionary measure and to alleviate parental anxiety! simple febrile seizures donot need investigations. I agree with Dr. Manu sharma that it is a common problem and settles down after 5 years.

Usually children of this age do not suffer from indigestion problem. Try to give her small but frequent home made nutritious diet of her choice and encourage her for some kind of exercises. I hope it may work.

I am a newly mom but I am unable to feed my baby because I won't get milk in large quantity.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

There r some galactogauges available like satavary, which you can take to increase the milk production. If the child is still not getting enough milk then you have to give him formula milk.
