Hi, My son age is 2 years and weight is 9 kg. Just want to ask you my son weight is ok as per age.
The weight for a 2 years old boy should be between 9.5 to 14 kg as per who. I suggest you get in touch with your pediatrician for further evaluation.

Breastfeeding is a great way of reducing your baby belly as it triggers the contraction in uterus and thus helps the uterus to attain its normal size by shrinking it. Nursing also burns the extra calories of women without even putting an ounce of effort on her part. You may be doing exercise for belly fat but that should be in a correct way with correct postures. Beside this you need to add up high fibre diet, take vitamins like B and C in your diet, whole grain and low fat dairy products, take green tea or warm water. Be stress free, also take proper rest. This all will help you to reduce belly fat.

Hi, my Sister went for an anomaly scan and the doctor said that the baby has "unossified nasal bone" We are really concerned and would like to know what are the chances of the baby having a down syndrome?

Hi, thank you for the question. The unossified nasal bone seen on a scan in second trimester of pregnancy is seen 6 times more commonly in fetuses with Down syndrome as compared to normal fetuses. This likelihood is not same when unossified nasal bone is seen in first trimester only, in case of which we repeat scan in second trimester. Considering that your sister went for an anomaly scan, I presume that she is in at least 18th week of her pregnancy and hence the second trimester. As a result of the above reason, it is definitely suggested for your sister to undergo confirmatory testing for Down syndrome by Amniocentesis and fetal Karyotype. At the same time, it is not necessary that a fetus with unossified nasal bone definitely has Down syndrome. Hence, no decision should be taken without confirmatory testing.

How old is child? How strongly is mt positive, in terms of induration in mm? Is bcg vaccination given? These are the circumstances, which decide if child needs treatment.

No, it's not a problem at all. Don't worry. And you need not treat so called cold at all, if child is taking breast feeds well, putting on weight and is active.

I have answered similar query many times. Simple cold goges in 4 to 6 days on its own. For nasal block, instill saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day. It is safe. For further information you can consult privately.

Newborn babies should be fed only breast milk on demand. That means you must feed whenever the child cries.

Control your fluid intake after7pm. Before going to bed urinate, before going to bed for few minutes remind your mind to get up for urination. Its training your mind, it works or you keep an alarm to get up 2 to3 hrs after sleep to get up &urinate. Consultation &drug therapy sos.

Probably u have started top feed. If so, stop completely n put on exclusive breast feeding till either breast is empty or baby is satisfied. There is no reason that milk is not sufficient. Still both breast may have sufficient milk for baby requirement. Feed him every 2-3 hourly or on demand if it is earlier than 2 hours. This practice shall improve or maintain breast milk production.

Undescended testis should be corrected anytime after 1st year. Prolonged exposure of testis to a high intra abdominal temperature is harmful.

You must have seen your doctor. It has to be seriously taken. Untreated, it can lead to cancer. A pediatric surgeon may bring it down or remove as it depends on whether undescended testes is present in the inguinal canal.

Hello doctor My 5 year young baby girl have allergy. Always she get sick of cold n cough. What should I do for her so that. She will not get sickness anymore. Please help.

FIAP(NEONATE), MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Ahmedabad
Children are often prone to cold which may be due to viral infection or an allergic phenomena. The best way to deal with allergy is to avoid allergens that is to say avoid contact with any known factors which would lead to allergy. Also keep in mind that if there is an adequate weight gain and no other symptoms, no need to worry. As he grows, the episodes will become less frequent.

Sometimes little baby boys have pain at the initiation of urination. Still give a urine sample for routine exam. Also get a local examination done by a pediatrician.

You have to find the cause by noticing when he cries and inform. Likely a habit disorder or attention seeking and console by fondling and search for the cause.

Whenever he gets fever, maintain temp chart 4 times in a day for 3-4 days. If temp rises >100' F, give paracetamol 150 mg 6-8 hourly if needed. Since he remains playful, there is no need of worry. After temp chart, you may come back. He is under wt. Give him good nourishing diet well cooked at home in ghee/ oil. Green vegetable and fruits have good micro nutrients to increase immunity. Vit A and zinc may be helpful to improve immunity.

More suckling gives more production of milk. Keep baby on breast till either baby is satisfied or breast is emptied. In case breast becomes empty and baby is still hungry, give him top feed which to be kept ready. Give exclusive breast milk till 6 months of age.

Hi, My son is 3.5 years of age. He had 3 minor blood Dysentery in 2 months interval. Every time after a viral infection/fever. Stays for 0.5 to 1.5 days only and then with application of antibiotic goes away. My child specialist said it is normal. Is this really nothing to worry? We recently started fruit juice to him. Is it anything to do with Dysentery? Please advise.

Do not give him fruit juice from market. Either make it at home and give him quarter of a class at a time. Much better is to give him fruits to eat rather than juice. Start liv-52 drops. 1ml daily for 7 days and then 1ml twice daily for 1mnth.
