Her weight is fine for her age. But most important thing is that she should regularly gain weight as per expected. This you can get vaccination card where you will find a growth chart. You can plot her weight against her age at regular intervals like say 1 to 3 monthly and see whether she is gaining weight normally or not.

For repeated cold, do not use any antibiotic. To increase immunity, give vitamin a 60, 000 units daily for 3 to 4 days. Give him food of his taste, if he refuses one item, try another, not all at a time. Don't force feed.

He is on breast or stoped. Now he is supposed to eat food himself by his hand. So just keep thali in front of him on table and ignore him. Don't teach pamper or request him. You will find he will start eating graduallly. In next 15 days.

Honey & lemon in water wil not affect breastfeeding in any way. Breastfeeding itself will help you to loose weight. Increase your physical activity like brisk walking for 1 hour.

My 3.5 years old daughter when wakes does not go for urine she do urine twice a day..
Even if she is passing urine twice per day she may be passing adequate amount. This can be confirmed by measuring the amount passed. However she can drink more fluids as there is no harm in that.

My son is 3 days old. He was diagnosed with vsd with 9mm hole. The cardiologist said it will be closed as the child grows. If not, then there are medical procedures to help.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH

Nothing much to worry about, it will be closed by 4-5 yrs of age. You can repeat 2 decho after a year to see its progression and decide accordingly. If you find problem in between you can always see cardiologist.

If rota virus and pcv vaccination of 1.5 month was missed on due date than how many days we can have this.

MBBS,MD(PGI,Chandigarh)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
If rota virus and pcv vaccination of 1.5 month was missed on due date than how many days we can have this.
It is always recomended to give the vaccines in time. If somehow it is missed it can be given upto 14 weeks of age and PCV you can give upto 5 yrs. But as early as you give it will protect your child more from those diseases.

My baby's DPT vaccination is due in 2 days. Shall I go for painless DPT instead of the regular painful DPT? Will that be effective in long run if I go for painless vaccine?

Yes, dpat vaccine (painless) is better in terms of the side effects like pain and fever but the efficacy in terms of immunity and protection is almost the same with both vaccines. But at present the availability of the painless vaccine is poor, so decide accordingly.

Consult a Pediatrician immediately & get your baby evaluated. Crying a lot, refusing food etc. May be an indication of some underlying physical problem. As babies at this age cannot express themselves, so as a mother you should always observe him for any change of behavior & habits, which will give you lots of indication regarding his inner health. Along with, continue breast feeding & eat nutritious diet.

My kid he is just 3 years old what type of food I can give him to get normal weight. He is just 7kgs.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Jodhpur
7 kg is a right weight for approximately 6 months of age. The right weight for 3 years old child is 14 kg. This situation is grade 4 malnutrition. It is a significant ill health and by itself an indication of admission. Reach pediatrician early get the child examined an give proper treatment. Most of such kids have underlying medical disorder which is to be adressed. This provisional advice provided by me stands subject to the patient undergoing a physical examination and is based entirely on inputs provided by patient/attendants. The patient is advised for physical examination at earliest.

From your description, it looks like your baby is suffering from infection of eye, possibly Conjunctivitis. Before it becomes worse or spreads to the other eye, it is better to take the baby to a Paediatrician and get proper advice.

Ideally until age of 6 month nothing should be given except breastmilk. If you want to give go for fresh pasturized milk. Or fresh smashed fruits not juice. As packed juice mostly contains flavour only, they don't have nutritive value.

Give more fibres in daily diet and plenty of water in a day. Constipation is easy to treat with fibre and green vegetables in diet in raw form rather then cooked form. Along with this you need medicines after showing to pediatrician, of course chronic constipation should be ruled out with thyroid problems for safer sake, and second condition causing the same is hirshprung's disease.
