Look for her hydration. If she is well hydrated, put your hand at her lower middle abdomen if you feel it tense, it means urine is retained in bladder. Even otherwise too, consult pediatrician immediately.

Most important reason for sore nipples is improper position i.e., latching. During feeding the nipple as well areola should be inside the babies' mouth. The babies chest should face mothers and ear lobule, shoulder, hip of the baby be in straight line.

You should not try to make children fat as obesity is associated with many complications. If the weight is around 9 kgs it's normal.

After the age of six months, babies need complementary food along with breastmilk. Fresh, home cooked foods which have a thick, soft consistency are best for babies when you start complementary feeding.

Sometimes malaria is resistant. Depends on what medication was used by your doctor. Or malaria may be gone, but because she is weak, she might have picked up some other infection. Kindly go back to the doctor who treated her for malaria and get her checked up.

I suppose he is not taking any corticosteroid which increase desire to eat and induce increase in wt. If it is not I would suggest to consult pediatrician to rule out any hormonal disturbance and for consoling.

No issues. If you wash his hands atleast 2 to 3 times a day. 3 months old baby does not come in contact with floor, surfaces or inefcted materials.

My son is 10 months old. Now, he got a problem like, one of his testis is not in the scrotum. When we scan it, it was given in the report as the left side of the testis is present in the left side external inguinal ring measuring 15 * 6mm. So whether operation is the only solution for him? Or we can wait for few more years for this problem? Kindly suggest me a solution for this issue. We are really worried.

Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux In Babies

MAMC, MRCPCH, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician

Which baby doesn't spit up their food! This is usually not a reason to worry, but if this spitting up is chronic and is accompanied by other symptoms it is known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. Severe GERD can cause weight loss and breathing problems and thus, should not be ignored.

Reflux occurs when food is pushed out of the stomach and back up the esophagus. This is usually because the digestive system in babies is not yet fully developed. Vomiting often during the day is one of the most common symptoms of GERD. Other symptoms include:
- A persistent cough
- Choking or gagging while eating
- Refusing to eat
- Crying while feeding
- Heartburn
- Pain in the stomach

Most cases of GERD can be diagnosed by its symptoms and a look at the baby's medical history. In some cases, additional tests may be required, such as:

Barium swallow
The child is given a chalky substance to drink. This highlights the esophagus, stomach and upper part of the small intestines in a special X-ray. It is used to check if there are any blockages in the digestive system.
pH probe

A long, thin tube with a probe at one end is put down the child's throat. This is kept in the esophagus for 24 hours. The probe measures the levels of acidity in the stomach. This test is usually done when the child complains of breathing problems along with reflux.

Upper GI endoscopy
Here the doctor puts a thin, flexible tube down the child's throat. At one end of the tube is a camera that allows the doctor to look into the esophagus, stomach and small intestine.

Gastric emptying study
One of the causes of reflux is the slow emptying of the stomach. To check this, the doctor will mix a radioactive chemical with the baby's milk that allows a special camera to follow its path down the digestive system.

In most cases, GERD can be treated by making a few lifestyle changes. Some of these are:
- Raise the head of the baby's crib
- After feeding the baby, do not let him lie down, but hold him upright for half an hour or so.
- Change his feeding schedule
- Ask your doctor if you can try giving him solid food. Else, check if you can thicken his feed with cereal.
- Make the baby burp after feeding

Most infants outgrow this condition within a year, so do not stress yourself and enjoy life with your baby.

Visit a pediatrician and get a opinion after he/she examines his chest. He may need a x ray. You can give him honey 5-10ml twice a day for dry cough. And ask him to do salt water gargles twice a day.
