Hi, I have 3 month old baby. Firstly can I let her have formula milk apart from breast milk? Secondly when I breast pump n try to feed her in the bottle she refuses to have from it, whether me or anyone else feeds from bottle she refuses. It becomes difficult for me especially when I urgently need to go anywhere. Please advise!

Please note: exclusive breastfeeding up to the age of 6 months is nectar for baby. No bottle feeding at all. Keep the expressed breast milk which can stored for about a week in back of refrigerator n can be fed by any body at any time to baby with spoon not bottle. No formula feed.

Ways to Reduce Teeth Sensitivity

MDS, BDS
Dentist, Ghaziabad
Ways to Reduce Teeth Sensitivity

The tooth is made of 3 layers, each with unique characteristics and specific function, the enamel, dentin, and pulp. The enamel is the outermost layer of the tooth and gives the tooth it's hard and lustrous appearance. The enamel is thicker on the crown than the root and is the first one to be affected by tooth decay. The only symptom when the enamel is decayed is food lodgment and discoloration.

The dentin is the next layer, which is composed of minute fine tubules leading from the enamel to the living portion of the tooth, which is the pulp. Once decay progresses from the enamel, the dentin is affected, and this leads to sensitivity in the teeth. When the root portion is exposed to the oral environment, because the root is covered by a more delicate substance called cementum, more severe dental sensitivity ensues.

There is a sharp, shooting discomfort through the tooth to specific foods, such as sweet, acidic, or hot or cold foods.  The main reasons for tooth sensitivity include:

  • Tooth decay, both crown and root caries
  • Periodontal disease and gum recession
  • Tooth erosion 
  • Aggressive tooth brushing
  • Mouth breathing
  • Bruxism or night grinding 

However, there are some simple ways to manage sensitivity, which can be done regularly at home.

  1. Toothpaste made for sensitive teeth: Potassium nitrate has been shown to block the tubules and has been included as an active ingredient in toothpastes. These are very effective, and if you are brushing twice, this can be used instead of the regular paste once.
  2. Brushing: Both the type of toothbrush and the brushing technique can have an impact on sensitivity.  Change to softer brushes and learn the ideal way to brush your teeth. A lot of times, rough brushing can lead to erosion and subsequent sensitivity
  3. Rinsing: Fluoride containing rinses have been proven to reduce sensitivity 
  4. Food habits: Even before sensitivity sets in, being cautious to avoid acidic fruits and juices can help prolong the onset of sensitivity. If possible, consuming these food stuffs should be followed by brushing or at the least a thorough rinsing
  5. Sealants: If a person is prone to caries (deep pits and fissures, for instance), then it is advisable to get sealants applied on the teeth. This can reduce the instance of wearing of the enamel which then leads to sensitivity
  6. Mouth guard: If you are a night grinder, then a mouth guard can help curtail this habit and thereby reduce sensitivity.

There you go with how to reduce sensitivity. Try these simple, easy measures and go on to enjoy the sweets or hot or cold foods that you have always craved for.

I have a 4 weeks baby boy. He des breastfeed. My breast milk is not sufficient. Can I give him lactogen1?

General Physician,
I have a 4 weeks baby boy. He des breastfeed. My breast milk is not sufficient. Can I give him lactogen1?
It is very important for mothers to know that infants need nothing more than breast milk in the first 6 months of life. Anything new must be introduced only after 6 months, and in a gradual manner along with breastmilk. As for milk, after six months, mothers can start using infant formula milk as, it is the safest alternative to breast milk and it also contains more nutrients than in cow’s milk. Animal milk must be introduced to infants only after 12-18 months of age because, unlike mother’s milk, it lacks adequate nutrients, contains no antibodies that protect against infections, it is also a poor source of iron and can be harmful to the baby’s developing kidneys. As for choosing between cow’s milk and buffalo milk, cow’s milk is a better option to start with, as buffalo milk is rich in fat and difficult to digest. Indigestion can lead to diarrhea. While introducing milk, start by adding a few teaspoons of the pasteurized milk to soups, halwa and some room-temperature curd. If he/she tolerates this well, then over time the quantity can be increased with careful monitoring. When introducing buffalo milk, mothers must first boil the milk, let it cool and then remove the layer of cream before feeding the baby.

CRP is a diagnostic aid to physicians, along with clinical examination it helps to come to a diagnosis. Isolated finding of blood tests is really of no use. Abnormal finding may at the most suggest there may be some underlying cause. Very high level of CRP is found in rheumatic illnesses. If febrile for long time it is worth while to rule out Kawasaki disease, but it is better to leave it to professional treating the child and avoid unnecessary parental anxiety.

I would suggest that though good treatments are available, go for termination if diagnosis at 13 weeks is confirmed. Get a second opinion through ultrasound to diagnose AVSD at 13 weeks.

MBBS
General Physician,
Baby having sneezing problem may be due to exposure to old climate and could be allergic to envirnement particle so you have to see that the child is not exposed to cold climate. Give plenty of water and fluid to drink. Best thing to consult a child specialist to rule out any rhinitis problem.

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 injection is effective for six months.

This is a case of tinnitus. I think you need further investigation to look for cause for tinnitus. This problem may be due to ear problem, hypertension or because of neurological disorder.

It looks like acute viral hepatitis. Take rest, watch for complications if any due to hepatic failure, otherwise it is self limiting disease. Repeat tests after a week and see the evolution of disease. So long as child is active, has good appetite, nothing to worry. If some thing goes wrong visit to paediatrician is must. Improvement in itching will suggest lessening of oedema of liver.

MBBS, MD

seven years old children are supposed to eat by themselves in separate dish.they should sit besides their parents and eat by them selves.but nowadays with two children ,mothers prepare the dish asking the choice to their children.this is reason for poor appetite..junk market food is another reason for poor development.otherwise whatever older people eat is diet for seven year old.just add 300 ml milk a day.pulses and paneer,curd as source of protein.If you stick to what I have advised you will start getting results in two weeks time

At this age babies may pass stools once in 8 days, this may be normal if abdomen is soft and baby is not vomiting. Burp your baby after each feed.

Take the baby and the mother to the nearest PEDIATRICIAN. They will teach the breastfeeding position and breast related issues if any. Usually occurs after the 1st delivery. Remember mother milk is best for the baby and there is no substitute.. Formula feeds are last in worst case scenario. Why we presses more because mother milk has both short term and long term good effect. You can google it online.
