Sir my 3 month baby dysentery for 1 day in 5-6 time. What should i do? Please advise.

Sir my 3 month baby dysentery for 1 day in 5-6 time. What should i do? Please advise.
Usually loose motion in a 3 month old baby is not dysentery as you call which is an infection. If the baby is exclusively breastfed, there is no chance of infection. It is important o exclusively breast feed the babies and never give (even water) in a bottle. You give econorm (powder available in sachet) one sachet twice daily and inform me privately and remain in touch with me as your personal doctor for further guidance in child rearing.

It's too early to introduce solids. You should give only breastmilk without even water till 6 months & then gradually introduce semsolids like kichri.

My daughter is two years 5 months old. I have introduced bhindi in her diet on alternate days for constipation. She has paediatric constipation. She has suffered shortly from gastroenteritis. The next day of having the vegetable she is passing a lot of stool with stomach pain. Is this indigestion? How much bhindi should I give her in her diet? please help me. I am giving her 10 to 12 pieces of cooked bhindi twice on alternate days.

Hello, Bhindi is high in fiber but carries plenty of slimy fluid, too causing loose motion with spasmodic cramp. Give your baby plenty of water to hydrate her body to eliminate toxins. Give homoeopathic medicine:@ Aloe sac 30-4 pills, thrice. Report after 3 days, please. Tk, care.

Don't be worrried about your baby's eating habits. If he is wetting the diaper 6-8 times and making bowel movements 2-5 times a day, it means he is getting enough to eat.

My daughter is 5 months old. I am giving her multivitamin drops with zinc as advised by her pediatritian. Can I give her calcarea phosphorica pills in addition? please advice

Pediatrician, Delhi
If baby is taking sufficient amount of milk then no need to give extra calcium as milk is itself rich source of calcium.

Hello, If your child is active and does not fall sick often, there is nothing to worry. He is not extremely underweight, but you need to improve on his protein, calcium and iron requirements.

Consult your child doctor. Baby of 3 months does urine 7 -8 times a day but potty may be 4-5 times is ok but 8 -9 times is slightly on the higher side. Does he take outside food to eat or is only on mother's milk? If ony on mother's milk, check what you eat. Avoid heavy meals and also avoid heavy dinners. Check with doctor.

I have recently became a father of a child but my wife is not able to breastfeed my child due to very low milk being able to produce .kindly tell me the reason for it and the solution as well. please suggest asap.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Nursing is a supply & demand process. Milk is produced as your baby nurses, and the amount that she/he nurses lets your body know how much milk is required. And tries to produce sufficient amount accordingly, to improve milk quantity just take a well balanced diet mainly proteins including egg, dairy products, chicken, fish etc. Baby sucking is the impulse which helps milk let down, giving a warm compress over breast can also open up the ducts and let milk pass freely. You can take medications like perinorm etc to increase milk production.

You have not mentioned range and duration of temp. Fever twice in a month relapse after a fortnight which may be due interrupted treatment for a definite cause of fever as various antibiotics used may not have been for sufficient time. Antibiotics are not safe if used unnecessary. I suggest, next time, to maintain temperature chart of 4 time for three to four days without medicine. If temp is > 101 degree f, give him 10 ml paracetamol. You may get back after that. House hold foods are better than pedisure.

Since there are temperature changes it is very important to take care of your child so that the temperature variation does not affect them. As the child now has cough and cold so better to consult a pediatrician. The vomiting was due to cough known as post tussive vomiting. The vomiting will subside as soon as the cough is taken care of. Also it is important to show to a doctor because after examination only he will be able to ascertain that the patient is having any changes of dengue or not or whether any medical laboratory test is needed.

Dear Doctor,                       I am the mother of baby girl of one and half month.. We came to know that she is having one hole of 0.53 cm perimembranous and one more hole of 0.29 cm ASD at her age of 25 days.                       Our paediatrician suggested no treatment at this time and she will be kept under observation for 2 years and echocardiography for every 6 months once.  Mostly holes may close by their own.                      Now she is of 3.7kg. Feeding is in normal way and she is active also.            But we are really worried about this condition.  Whether her condition is very severe?  Whether holes close by their own?

This is a common problem in newborn babies, generally all babies have holes before birth which close either at the time of birth or few hours after birth. This is a physiological phenomenon. In some babies this phenomenon gets delayed for may be few days and months. As per your paediatrician its correct to wait and watch, I hope its not a major issue, if it was a major issue your baby would have breathing problems at birth or later. Since baby is doing well you need not worry! just get repeat echo done as per your doctors order. No need to panic!

Doing potty about 20 min after milk feeding is no indication that baby is unable to digest milk. See if he is playful, active, putting on weight and passing watery urine 7-8 times per 24 hours. Child may pass 6-8 motions per day, that is normal.

Tips To Ensure Regular Sleep For Your Baby

Tips To Ensure Regular Sleep For Your Baby

When it comes to babies and their sleeping habits, you have to understand that every baby is different and has different needs. Thus, certain things that may work for one set of parents may not necessarily work for the other. Thus, here are a few tips that will ensure that your child gets ample of undisturbed sleep and stays healthy and fit: 

1. Learn to distinguish when your baby starts feeling tired: Once your child starts feeling tired, he/she will definitely show specific signs that he/she requires some sleep. Some common signs  are:
a) The constant eye rubbing 
b) Yawning
c)  Getting a bit fussy and cranky 

Put your baby to sleep as soon as possible when he/she starts showing such signs. If your baby gets overtired, it will be all the more difficult for him to fall asleep. 

2. Set a proper sleep cycle: Ensure that you set a suitable sleep cycle for your baby. Train your child to sleep during the night and play during the day. Ensure that you keep your kid busy during the day, ensuring that he/she stays awake even after a feed, so that he is tired by night time and sleeps properly all throughout the night. At night, when your child gets up for a feed, ensure that you do not turn on the lights. Instead, make sure to keep the room in semi-darkness so he/she goes back to sleep effectively. 

3. Ensure that your baby is full: If your baby is hungry and has not had his fill, it will tend to disrupt his sleep. Thus, ensure that your baby is well fed before you put him to sleep. For example, if during the day you feed the child after every three hours, as evening approaches feed him every two hours. This will ensure that he is well fed before he goes to sleep.

4. Let go the burping occasionally: Babies do not avidly breastfeed at night. Thus, it is not essential that you wait for him to burp every time he feeds.  

5. Give a Massage: Another way to ensure that your baby sleeps properly is to give him a good massage. A massage will help the child to relax and thus sleep better.
