It is helpful to see the photo if you can send. Now you try imidil cream to apply after bath twice daily and it will take a few weeks to get result. Keep in touch with me, personally.

If the nipple does not latch on to the baby's mouth the nipple may be retracted and sipple shield can be kept and feed the baby. Milk will form in due course and lactare capsules help increase milk.

As per data given by you, child is grossely undernourished & root cause is obviously under/faulty feeding habits. You have to be strict about it & teach him what is good for his health. Cut down on junk food, excesive sugars. Without any hitch. You should practice what is good for his health & not what child demands.

My daughter is 11 months old. She can't sleep without breastfeed. N whenever she wakes up. What is right for her? Shall I avoid n how?

MBBS, MD
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Yes,its correct age to reduce frequency of breast feeds.ideally you should give breast feed s three times ie eight hours interval.in between child will need almost sixty to eighty grams of Charles as porridge in three intervals. Please feed child as per age in months to develop correct changeover from breast to semisolid meals. Three months old should be breastfeed at three hry.but six month old should be given after 4-6 hrly.and add thin watery cereal soup two times a day.

You have not mentioned age. If child has colic pain then colimex will help. Sudden excessive cry in healthy child in evening and between to 3 wk to 6mo. Then it is likely to be colic. But make sure there is no other disease or illness. Give medicine as adv, by doctor.

My kid baby boy age is 13 months but his weight is just 8 kg and the boy is very active. Please help me.

Hello , weight is less, but birth weight and feeding practices are important to assess. Also it depends on the height gain and weight gain pattern whether the child is having an issue or not. You should ask your pediatrician to plot the height and weight and head size on growth chart and keep monitoring growth every two months. This way you can make an informed decision and management can be done. I hope it helped Dr. Uppal growth, childhood diabetes and hormone specialist.

You can give plenty of fruits and protein diet. If other hairs are healthy than probably not much can be done.

Hi lybtrate user, a newborn baby can pass stool for 10 to 15 times a day or sometimes it will not pass stool for altogether 5-6 days, both the conditions are normal, so don't worry about it. This happens because babies are on only milk diet. As far as gases are concerned burping after every feed will be very useful.

My son is just 38 days old. He cries often due to hunger. I am on breastfeeding. Some of ma relatives are telling he is not getting enough milk. Also he s looking so lean. I am feeling guilty that I can't produce enough milk. My nipples are too sore. I am using breast shield to feed him. He latches well on the shield. Please suggest what should be done for increasing the milk flow.

Use nipcare on sore nipples after every feed which you can wipe off with a wet cotton before every feed baby should not be sucking on the nipples, he should be sucking on areola at the rim of the black portion on the breast. To increase the milk flow do the following: take proper diet, adequate water and at least 1l of milk or milk products everyday take proper rest and remain calm and stress free you can take lactonic granules one teaspoon twice a day with milk for 2 weeks and tab perinorm one tab three times a day for one week on demand breast feeding to your baby.

My baby girl is 2. 5 yrs old. Is this the right time to send her to dance or drawing class or any other? as, its is said, every child is special, I want her to find out, what talent she carries. How can I provide my assistance on it?

Pediatrician, Pune
You have a long time to identify her talents, why be in such a hurry, just be there for the baby, let her explore her own new world, let her see through her eyes, don't make her see, what you want to see, she will make you see things which you could not have ever imagined, all babies are born genius, we are the hurdles in between.

Small babies sleep more. You must wake her up for feeding by gently stroking. Once the stomach is full she will again go for sleep.

Dear Yumnam, I am doing lot of work on Stem cells which are currently being used for blood disorders. Stem cells are also being used in Spinal cord injury, Cerebral Palsy, Stroke , Head injury etc only in the form of clinical trials. Stem cells have no role in curing Sensory Neural hearing loss as of today. Best wishes, Prof. Yashbir Dewan

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.
