Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?

Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?
These are of no benefit other than changing the taste. Give whatever you eat in a form which he can eat easily. Vegetables, pulses, rice, egg etc. Soups good. Juices do not benefit much. Reduce milk.

Hi, My 3 years old son is feeling very lazy these days. His weight is 13 kg and was very active kid but now he keeps lying on beds or couch. He also wants less now and often complains of backache. Is there something to worry about?

His weight is normal for his age. Children feel tired if they have anemia which can occur even in children with normal weight. Get hb% and peripheral blood smear done.

This is good medicine and if you are bottle feeding you top it and give breast milk and other milk with a spoon only. Diarrhea will stop. Inform me directly after doing this.

If your wife is feeding your baby then this could be normal variation. But mothers may conceive second. Time during lactation so get her urine pregnancy test done. If positive then consult gynecologist.

My son 3.3 years old but he is not able to speak clearly. He can say mamma, Papa but not any other word. Kindly suggest me.

Check his hearing-if that is ok expose him to other kids of his age and then speech will automatically develop-sometimes nature has its own ways he will start talking soon -may b sentences with 2-3 words together first and then long sentences.

Hi doc, my son is 1 year 4 months old. My question is regarding avg sleep hours for this age babies. He hardly sleeps 9 hours in night and in between also wakes up in crying mood. Can you please give me some info on this so that I can come over my worry?

Pediatrician, Pune
Dont worry sleep peacefully and let your child also sleep comfortably, avg sleep varies from person to person and even in same person in different times of the year, trying to make any changes in the natural sleep hours causes further problems, but see that the child sleeps in quite dark room with minimal disturbance, mostly at the same time of night ~ 9- 10 pm, please do not keep tv in the bedroom, an undisturbed good sleep is the best tonic for the bay for good growth and keeping him / her happy

A counsellor or a motherly person should talk to him lovingly and find out his mind. May be you can check his general condition by testing cbc and tsh in a good lab and inform me privately.

Serve food in smaller portions. Do not demand or reward “a clean plate.” Let your child ask for more if he or she is still hungry.

Human beings have a circadian rhythm of sleep. If it's altered happens like this. You must restrict his addiction to video games. Sometimes excessive video watching and sleep deprivation may result in fits.
