You must give freshly prepared, home available, semisolids like rice ganji, kichri etc. You must gradually introduce one after the other as the baby gets accustomed. Mashed vegetables and fruits also are introduced as the baby starts accepting.

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication There will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly And spine block will work for six months

3 crucial things a newborn needs the most

Newborns primarily need your love, care, and attention. If you aren't sure whether you're on the right track with your little one, read on to find out the 3 most important things that your newborn needs:

1. Skin-to-skin contact: one of the best ways to speed up the bonding process with your newborn is by having as much as possible skin-to-skin contact with your child. This is important as the newborn connects through smell and touch during this time. The senses of your baby are naturally tuned to react to the feel of your bare skin and your distinctive smell.

Many studies also suggest that close physical contact can help in reducing stress in your newborn so as to allow its biological drive to come through and easily latch onto your breast to feed itself. In other words, it ensures a higher chance of getting the newborn started on breast milk in case your child is not taking to your breasts easily.

2. To be breastfed: the best food for your baby is milk that is produced by you. Breast milk offers a host of benefits that go beyond basic nourishment. According to research conducted by the national institute of environmental health sciences, a child faces 20% lower chances of dying between the ages of 28 days and 1 year if he or she is breastfed.

Protecting your child from illnesses such as childhood cancers or type 1 and type 2 diabetes, allergies, and obesity are some of the very important benefits that mother's milk can provide.

3. Swaddling your baby right: wrapping a blanket snugly around the body of your newborn can help calm your little one and promote sleep. Several studies reveal that this technique of swaddling (which is done to resemble the mother's womb) if done correctly can bring about longer and better sleep for your child as well as reduce instances of crying. It also ensures your baby stays warm and comfortable.

Breast and dairy milk is good and are gluten free. Avoid gluten containing product like wheat, rye, barley, and all their products. Gluten free products are fruit, vegetables, nuts, rice, beans and legumes. Gluten free diet can be well prepared at home. I do not prefer branded product so I do not name of market product. Pls check in the market.

Losing too much water can cause dehydration. Child needs plenty of fluids in form of ors and other liquids commonly consumed. If he has actually not passed urine for 18 hours the condition is serious, and you need to take the child to emergency immediately.

Looks abnormal. Pl compare with the birthweight of the child. If birthweight was 2.5-3.5 kg, then 9.2 at 7 mths is not good. Consult a paediatrician.

Aapne birth weight nahi bataya. Mother ke nipple problem ke liye apne Dr. se sampark kare vo iska ilaj batayenge. Bacche ka daily weight gain dekhna padta hai agar hame ye dekhna hai ki maa ka dudh paryapt hai ki nahi. Powder milk katori chamachse de rahe hain vo sahi hai. Cows milk dene ki jaroorat nahi hai. Bacce to multivitamins aur calcium supplements bhi dena hoga. Bacche to infection ki aasar hai ki nahi uske liye apne Dr. se jaroor mile.

An 11 month old child needs breastmilk along with complementary foods. If your baby is breastfeeding, you do not need to give him milk from outside sources. Energy supplements like bournvita are okay for kids who consume milk other than mother's milk.
