Babies vary with the frequency of passing stools. It's not worrying if he doesn't pass stools 3-4 days but if it's hard and causes discomfort to the baby, then I would be more concerned. Breastfed babies generally have soft stools compared to the bottlefed ones.

Can I give brain iq syrup to my 8 month old baby suffering from leukodystrophy and in how much quantity.

Can I give brain iq syrup to my 8 month old baby suffering from leukodystrophy and in how much quantity.
Infants digestive system at this time is very sensitive. Few medications may cause indigestiion, flatulence problem. Instead I suggest you to consume everyday, a fist of groundnuts or walnuts (which are rich in DHA. The more nutritionally fit you are the more you can transfer essential nutrients to your baby, through your breastmilk. You can start giving 1 table spoon of mashed rice, mashed potato, clear dal water to your baby along with breast milk. Add a 5 ml of ghee to mashed rice, mashed potato. Ghee is very good for brain development.

Ways To Deal With Rickets In Children!

M.D(Pediatrics), MBBS

Ways To Deal With Rickets In Children!

A nutritional disorder, the problem of rickets occurs if your child suffers from a deficiency of calcium, phosphate or Vitamin D. It causes softened and damaged bones, skeletal deformities, impaired development of the bone's growth plate (a spot of growing tissue found near the end of a long bone in adolescents and children) and stunted growth.

Here are few very simple ways you can prevent your child from getting it:

1. Having Vitamin D and calcium rich foods - One of the best ways to prevent this nutritional disorder from affecting your child is by making sure he or she have foods that are high in Vitamin D and calcium. Egg yolks, fish oil or fatty fish like salmon and mackerel are some of the Vitamin D foods that your child can have to strengthen his bones. Even foods that have Vitamin D added to it such as cereals, orange juice, milk and infant formula can also be given to your child. Sources of calcium can be soyabeans, nuts, broccoli, cabbage, cheese and yoghurt.

2. Going out in the sun - Considered to be an excellent source of Vitamin D, getting your child exposed to sunlight is another excellent way of getting most of this nutrient, as well as preventing him or her from developing rickets. Although the exposure time may vary from individual to individual, about 10-15 minutes of sun exposure without sunscreen can help.

3. Having Vitamin D supplements - Even the consumption of Vitamin D supplements can reduce your child's risk of getting rickets. Since mother's milk contains less than the recommended Vitamin D amount, infants too need to be put on Vitamin D supplements of 400 IU each day. For teenagers and young children, the recommended dosage is 600 IU of Vitamin D every day. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.
