you are giving 3 fruits in a day. Give only one fruit or its juice once in a day and give more dal etc cooked in oil or ghee in place of fruits. you may add suji or ata halwa. Crying may be due to hunger. Force feeding is more harmful. Now he is 10 months old, he can pick items he like and it. It may happen some time baby may not digest some item which is short in duration. after 1-2 months, he may start digesting grinded apple.

One of my friends is blessed with a baby and she has been advised to take vibact DS along with other medicines post c-section. By mistake she is been taking 3 capsules of vibact DS instead of one suggested at night. The kid is urinating a lot but she is all okay. What can she do to reverse the action of excess dosage?

Children of three years and above and adults can take two capsules for two to four times per day. So nothing to worry , nothing needed.

I am trying to ensure that my daughter drinks milk at least once a day. My wife does not seem to want to do this as she feels my daughter gets adequate dairy (and calcium) through cheese, ice cream and yogurt. Is there any downside to dropping milk from her diet if she is indeed getting her daily calcium requirement met by other means? Am I just being a ridiculous traditionalist who wants his children to drink milk at least twice a day since this is what I was brought up on? Since bone health is so important for women I feel that missing out in these formative years may lead to issues in my daughter's adult life.

Hello. It is good that you are taking interest in nutritional demands of your kid. Children in growing age require good amount of protein, calcium, vitamin d. Which can be provided by milk or milk products. If your child is not taking milk but taking milk products such as cheese, curd, yogurt it should not be a problem.

My daughter is 3 years old. And she's experiencing toothaches at her age. She have dental caries. Some says she is lack of calcium because when I'm still pregnant of her, I drink coffee instead of milk, and I don't take vitamins. Is it normal for her to have dental caries?

No, excessive sugar in diet coupled with poor oral hygeine results in dental caries. Avoid candies, regularly brush twice a day & visit a dentist to know extent of damage.

My daughter is 13.5 years old she has very poor appetite. She does not eat anything in morning (says will vomit or having vomiting feeling ), basically we have seen its more of anxiety of going to school that she avoids eating .on weekends she does not complain of vomiting but no eating. Her weight gain and height gain last 5-10 years is below lowest curve. Worried of both, suggest anything for hunger and height.

You have rightly said that it is all due to anxiety for going to school. It is easy to over come this problem by awaking her in the morning earlier by 15-20 minutes so that she can take her breakfast easily. There is no medicine which can change this habit. Increase frequency of her diet in stead of increasing quantity of diet which shall be helpful in gaining growth.

My child is 5 years old and he has the problem of coughing usually in winters(about 4-5 times in winter season or when the atmosphere changes)and when he is affected by cough then it remains for 1 week. Please advise.

Please keep regular record of her temperature and see if it's rising. You hv to watch for other symptoms like cough cold, vomiting, lethargy or rashes before proceeding with this temperature. I prefer symptomatic treatment and general care till the fever is low grade without any systemic involvement.

This is common problem with children of such age group, this is not related to ant abnormality its just moody behaviour of children, so need not worry as long as the child is active and playful. Do not force feed the child. No medications required.

By this time you should have introduced most of the foods what we eat. Now you can introduce all the semisolids like porridge and mashed vegetables and fruits one after the other.
