Birth weight usually become 3 times by 1 year. So if your child's weight is around 7 kgs it's normal. Allow him to take part in family diet.

Hello thanks for the query gain in weight three times of birth weight at 12-13 month of age is quite normal. The growth is very rapid in first few months of infancy but then it gradually slows down. The weight gets doubled of birth weight at 6 month 3 times at one year and 4 times by 2 year of age. I hope you have got the point. Maintain the record of weight and height on growth chart so that you can better assess the growth of child. Regards.

Is it safe to feed horlicks and fruit juice to an infant other than formula milk?

General Physician,
Is it safe to feed horlicks and fruit juice to an infant other than formula milk?
It is better to avoid formula and give only breast milk. You tell the age of the infant. Fruit juice can be given and horlicks also. Always give more natural vitamins in food form. Ask me in case of doubts.

My baby has chest congestion. The doc advised to give him. Steam thru vaporizer. I have bought sodium chloride injection along with Levolin, but do not know how to use it. Do I need to add water to vaporizer in order to make sufficient steam? Confused.

As advised by doctor, you can give steam through vapourizer carefully. But plain steam. And do not let your baby go very close to the vapouriser. Sodium chloride with levolin is for nebulization, not vapourizer. It is not advisable to give nebulization for kids without supervision of a doctor. If nebulization has been advised, take your child to nearby hospital or clinic and give it. Hope this helped you!

Birthmarks In Infants!

Birthmarks In Infants!

Birthmarks in Infants

A baby's skin coloring can vary greatly, depending on the baby's age, race or ethnic group, temperature, and whether or not the baby is crying. Skin color in babies often changes with both the environment and health. Some of these differences are just temporary. Others, such as certain birthmarks, may be permanent.

What are birthmarks?

Birthmarks are areas of discolored and/or raised skin that are present at birth or within a few weeks of birth. Birthmarks are made up of abnormal pigment cells or blood vessels.

Although the cause of birthmarks is not known, most of them are harmless and do not require treatment. Babies with birthmarks should be examined by your child's health care provider, especially if they are:

  • Located in the middle of the back, along the spine (may be related to spinal cord problems)
  • Large birthmarks on the face, head or neck
  • Interfering with movement of activity, for example a birthmark on the eyelid that may interfere with vision

Some common birthmarks include:

  • Stork bites
  • Angel kisses
  • Salmon patches

These are small pink or red patches often found on a baby's eyelids, between the eyes, upper lip, and back of the neck. The "stork bite" name comes from the marks on the back of the neck where, as the myth goes, a stork may have picked up the baby. They are caused by a concentration of immature blood vessels and may be the most visible when the baby is crying. Most of these fade and disappear completely.

Congenital dermal melanocytosis (also known as Mongolian spots)

Congenital dermal melanocytosis refers to areas of blue or purple-colored, typically on the baby's lower back and buttocks. These can occur in darker-skinned babies of all races. The spots are caused by a concentration of pigmented cells. They usually disappear in the first 4 years of life.

Strawberry hemangioma

This is a bright or dark red, raised or swollen, bumpy area that looks like a strawberry. Hemangiomas are formed by a concentration of tiny, immature blood vessels. Most of these occur on the head. They may not appear at birth, but often develop in the first 2 months. Strawberry hemangiomas are more common in premature babies and in girls. These birthmarks often grow in size for several months, and then gradually begin to fade. They may bleed or get infected in rare cases. Nearly all strawberry hemangiomas completely disappear by 9 years of age.

Port-wine stain

A port-wine stain is a flat, pink, red, or purple colored birthmark. These are caused by a concentration of dilated tiny blood vessels called capillaries. They usually occur on the head or neck. They may be small, or they may cover large areas of the body. Port-wine stains do not change color when gently pressed and do not disappear over time. They may become darker and thicker when the child is older or as an adult. Port-wine stains on the face may be associated with more serious problems. Skin-colored cosmetics may be used to cover small port-wine stains. The most effective way of treating port-wine stains is with a special type of laser. This is done when the baby is older by a plastic surgery specialist.

Congenital moles

These common moles (less than 3 inches in diameter) occur in about 1 out of every 100 newborns. They increase in size as the child grows, but usually don't cause any problems. Your child's health care provider will watch them closely as rarely they can develop into a cancerous mole.

Erectile problem is most likely a psychological one. Ask him not to worry. Ask him take a bath before sex. Avoid mobile phone tv etc. Use soft music. Create a relaxing environment. I hope he will overcome over this. Never ever show a displeasure if he is not able to make it.

My child aged 6 years is having retina eye problem. Everything is ok, but he can't read from certain distance. All tests have been done. But, even erg test also failed to diagnose exact problem. But it has been diagnosed as retina problem. Probably small retina. It has been suggested another test scanning after 6 months. Is there any remedy for retina problems.

Hi There is developmental delay in all spheres (motor, adaptive and social) in children with Down’s syndrome and most common genetic cause of learning disability & mental retardation. As there is no curative therapy, counseling has a central role to play in the management. Having Down's syndrome child can be challenging at times. But with help professional support, most people are able to have healthy, active and more independent lives. There are many children who have done wonders and hence take it as chanllenge and support your kid to develop and learn.

I am sure very 1st time baby would have not demanded cerelac. Do not thrust cerelac on her. Leave her free to choose his diet made in home. She is now 16 months old and able to select or demand what ever she likes.

No superiority. It is all marketing gimmick. Wish baby would have been on exclusive mothers milk. Keep on trying suckling your breast when baby cries for hunger before feeding powdered milk. Your positive attitude shalk help felicitate in relaxation. Best wishes

I am 26 year old mother with two month old daughter. I am breastfeeding my daughter. But it seems milk is not enough for my little one. So I am giving her lactogen 1 once in a day in spoon. As she is not taking bottle feeding. Whenever I try to feed in bottle, she vomits. Please tell me the reason for refusal of bottle nipple by my baby? And please suggest any other idea?

It is unhealthy to give bottle and bottle and nipple will cause a lot of health issues and only breast milk at his age is advised. If you give formulas, give only in spoon from a cup or sipper. Checking the weight gain every month is the best way to know if the milk supply is enough
