Mustard oil is very strong for baby skin, so it can causes rash and skin burn so don't use it. If baby is cranky because of itching or burning use caladril lotion local application. You can use coconut oil, olive oil etc for massage.

All About Chronic Lung Disease in Infants

All About Chronic Lung Disease in Infants

The newborn are often extremely susceptible to fatal diseases and the first few months of the infant's life calls for uncompromised care and vigilance. One of the most precarious diseases afflicting the newborn babies are chronic lung disorders. This condition mainly emanates from a damage to the lung tissue, which results in breathing troubles. Under such circumstances, the lung may collapse, being filled with fluids and end up oozing out harmful mucus. While a severe form of such lung diseases may often result in the death of the infant, in most cases the infants outgrow the disease and with proper care, grow up to lead a healthy life. 

Most chronic lung diseases in infants are congenital and are spurred by a variety of causes: 

  1. Premature delivery: Chronic lung diseases are recurrent in babies born prematurely, i.e. before the lapse of at least 26 weeks of gestation age. Underweight infants also run the risk of suffering from this ailment. The lungs are not able to develop fully in such situations as a result of which they become prone to respiratory distresses. Another allied trigger to Chronic Lung Disease is the use of ventilation on the premature babies. The forced breathing and imposed oxygen levels induced by ventilators often impair normal lung functions in babies. 
  2. Fluids in the lungs: Certain babies are either born with or develop a condition where fluids accumulate in the lungs. This inflicts a lot of damage to the lungs and leads to such diseases.
  3. Respiratory Infections: Some babies are likely to acquire lung infections from certain disease causing viruses. This largely handicaps the normal lung functions. 
  4. Heart conditions:  Abnormal blood circulation in the heart also stimulates lung diseases in newborns. If the heart is unable to regulate the flow of blood to the lungs properly, then the chances of such diseases increase by leaps and bounds. 
  5. Inhaling harmful foreign materials: Certain particles often affect the health of the lungs tremendously. Exposure to meconium during delivery might result in the inflammations that potentially injure the lung tissues. 
  6. Nutrition deficiencies: If an infant's body lacks vital nutrients, it may result in a condition of malnutrition. Lack of vitamin A may cause chronic lung diseases. 

Chronic Lung Diseases are usually recoverable with early detection and appropriate treatment. However, one needs to meticulously cater to the health needs of the baby, in order to ensure complete recovery and avert recurrence.

the girl of 10 years should weigh 28 kg with height 137cm as per standards. Obviously she is undernourished for long period,resulting in immunosuppression( reduced resistance to diseases) making her prone to infections. Dietary readjustment & correction of deficiencies will result in better health.This may take time but essential for good health.

If it has gone down to stomach, it will come out through anus next 1-3 days. Watch the stools. If it does not or the child have some distress, then take him to your doctor.

What should we give to our children if they do not eat properly.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Have family dinner together where you can practice what you preach. It is best way forward though lengthy. Don't criticize him, that is going to backfire in long run. Love him, suggest him, this while allowing his own way, will make him think sooner than later. Any change will be his own wish and last long.

The sixth month of pregnancy brings along a larger frequency of headaches along with it. Chocolate, caffeine, dehydration, over exposure to sunlight or low blood sugar levels can be the triggers to it. If taking rest does not help, consult with your doctor or pharmacist.

I have a 5 month old baby girl. I am feeding her with enfamil formula and cerelac . What else can I give her ? What can I do to increase breast milk?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
We advise only breast feeds up to six months, later onwards home diet mashed and made thin so that child is able to swallow.In your case instead of breast milk formula feed. For increasing breast secretions frequent breast feeding works best. In your case it is irrelevant. I don't prefer cerelac,certainly not before six months. Hope this helps.

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.

Hep b is not transmitted in breast milk, just get yourself vaccinated against hep b, if you have done so you are safe. Hep b is transmitted only through blood.

It`s a natural reflex don`t worry, what is her weight. Give only mother`s milk up to 6 months of age then supplement home cooked food and continue mother`s milk minimum up to 2 years. Formula feeds I don`t recommend.
