Hello dear lybrate-user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query for your son thoroughly.* There are no additional supplements for 105 days old child for weight gain except breast feeding, and CHD is also a major factor for low weight.* So do not panic regarding the weight, anesthesia and all other things are planned in accordance to weight only, so he would be fine for sure, have to rely on almighty God. Hope this clears your query. Wishing your toddler fine recovery and cheerful smile after surgery. May God give you enough strength to carry out this mission. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.

It is not compulsory and is optional and protects from certain types of pneumococcus bacteria There are currently two types of pneumococcal vaccines: pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) and pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23). There are more than 90 types of pneumococcal bacteria. PCV13 protects against 13 types and PPSV23 protects against 23 types. Both vaccines provide protection against illnesses like meningitis (infection of the covering of the brain and spinal cord) and bacteremia (blood infection). PCV13 also provides protection against pneumonia (lung infection).

Hi there is any Best milk powder for breastfeeding mother to increase breast milk ?.

Milk production is increased by optimising breastfeeding management, rather than by using powders and supplements. If you have doubts about your supply, we can schedule a consultation to evaluate your baby's latch and your overall feeding routine.
