All this which you have mentioned is normal for this age. Do not stop feeding while baby poops during feed. I am sure you must be feeding exclusively breast milk.

Dear Lynbrate user When you are feeding your baby sometimes the child hits or sucks Very strongly then it may be tender Sometimes child does not take feed from one side even then the milk which remains there can cause pain. Try hot fomentation. And take some anti inflammatory for 5days Hope this helps

My 2 Months baby boy taking bottle feeding(Mother Milk not coming).He is taking NanPro1(Suggested by Doctor). Right now we are using only D3 drops. Some times he is feeling uneasy, is there any medicine for digestion. Please suggest me

Dear, Don't worry.Since your is on formula feeds by bottle,he tends to swallow air during feeds. Buy a small feeding bottle (100ml) and fill it 3/4th and feed him in semi reclining position.Burp him thoroughly after every feed. This should suffice.No need of any digestive medications. Dr Srinath ks

How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

Whether you have a toddler or a teen, I believe, five of the best strategies to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits in kids would be :

1. Have regular family meals.

2. Serve a variety of healthy foods and snacks.

3. Be a role model by eating healthy yourself.

4. Avoid battles over food.

5. Make eating a playtime and probably a way of spending quality time with your kids.involve them in the process.

Kids who take part in regular family meals are also:

- more likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

- less likely to snack on unhealthy foods

- less likely to smoke, use marijuana, or drink alcohol

 

You could Follow these basic guidelines:

1. Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine, aiming for the goal of at least five servings a day.

2. Make it easy for kids to choose healthy snacks by keeping fruits and vegetables on hand and ready to eat. Other good snacks include low-fat yogurt, peanut butter and celery, or whole-grain crackers.

3. Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein, such as fish, eggs, beans, soya, tofu.

4. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals so kids get more fiber.

5. Limit fat intake by avoiding fried foods and choosing healthier cooking methods, such as broiling, grilling, roasting, and steaming. Choose low-fat or nonfat dairy products.

6. Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks, such as chips and candy. But don't completely ban favorite snacks from your home. Instead, make them "once-in-a-while" foods, so kids don't feel deprived.

7. Limit sugary drinks, such as soda and fruit-flavored drinks. Serve water and low-fat milk instead.

And above all ----- Be a Role Model Yourself!

The best way for you to encourage healthy eating is to eat well yourself.!!!!

That's all for now, for my next dose(article) ...stay tuned!

10 Tips To Stay Healthy With Type 1 Diabetes

10 Tips To Stay Healthy With Type 1 Diabetes

1-healthy eating having diabetes means learning how to count carbohydrates and how the foods you eat affect your blood sugar. A healthy meal plan also includes complex carbohydrates, protein, fiber (beans, whole grains, fruits and vegetables), lots of green, leafy vegetables, and limited amounts of heart-healthy fats.

2-being active physical activity can help you keep blood sugar levels normal and manage your diabetes. Being active can also improve your mood and reduce your feelings of stress and anxiety.

3-monitoring checking your blood sugar levels regularly gives you information about your diabetes management. Monitoring helps you know when your blood sugar levels are within your target range and helps you to make choices in what you eat and what you do.

4-taking medication obviously, it's important that you take your insulin, but it's vitally important that you understand how much to take in certain situations. This comes from careful monitoring of your blood sugar levels and getting to know the cause and effect between your insulin therapy and your blood sugar levels.

5-problem solving everyone encounters problems with their diabetes control. If/when you have a problem, you need to know how to troubleshoot your self-care. This can include analyzing and evaluating your situation and thinking about what was different from usual that could have affected your blood sugar. It also means coming up with solutions to try, as well as looking at what worked and what didn't. Don't get bitter, get better.

6-reducing risks you can take steps now to lower your risks of developing health problems in the future. Recommendations to reduce your risks and avoid other health problems include: not smoking, seeing you doctor regularly (to check a1c), visiting your eye doctor at least once a year, brushing and flossing daily and seeing your dentist, taking care of your feet, and listening to your body.

7-healthy coping living with diabetes and its daily demands for self-care can be stressful and may negatively impact your self-management. Not only can stress increase your blood sugar levels, but it can contribute to you making poor choices. The good news is there are many healthy ways to cope with stress.

I think this last point is vitally important, and I want to share three options for managing the stress of living with diabetes:

8-be kind to yourself. Do the best that you can do. It's important to feel good about your successes. Give yourself credit when you are successful at managing your blood sugar and don't be overly critical of yourself if you fall short of a goal.

9-seek support from a network of family and friends who you can talk to when you are upset. Seek opportunities to meet other people with diabetes, such as attending support groups or participating in online forums (such as podcasts or tweet chats), so that you won't feel isolated and alone. Talk to a psychologist or other mental health provider who provides diabetes-focused therapy if you feel depressed or overwhelmed.

10.-choose to have a positive attitude, and cultivate it every day, but also accept when you feel down about diabetes. To have occasional negative thoughts is normal; research has shown that acknowledging those thoughts may help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar levels stable. Acknowledge, but don't dwell; living with a negative mindset will limit your ability to cope. The way you think about events can influence your mood, thoughts and actions.

Respected sir my kid who is now 5 and a half year old was detected with bilateral relfux. His treatment is going under local expert doctors. We are not satisfy with the results till now. The condition is getting worst day by day. His bilateral urinary replacement is done. Still with his latest report we found that he has protienosis +, acidosis +, high blood pressure, and serum creatinine is 1.1 mg. We are just so worried and cant think of something else than his health.

Pediatrician, Ranchi
I would like to know whether reports are worsening or improving.What do you mean by bilateral urinary replacement(was ureterostomy done and if yes then when)?Also how severely the kidney is affected(was DMSA test done). Once the surgical decompression done the reflux decreases and the reports starts improving. Please attach the reports and provide details so that I better able to help you out. Regards

DNB (Pediatrics), Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS

You can, but I suggest give paracetamol 1st, then if it doesn't subside in a hours time, give ibuprofe. Make sure you are not over dosing your child.

My kid is 2 years old, last 2 days there has been redness in his eyes and yellowish things coming from eyes. He also had running nose. Our doctor has advised to give Tobacin and Maxtra. Things seems to be better now. Please tell if above medicine is good for kids and has no side effects. Also as summer is coming, can this be eye infection or due to cool air hitting the eyes? What can we do to boost his immunity?

Well you are giving weaning food in correct way as far as daily protein requirement is concerned. I'm fine with it but for weight gain you needed carbs. Which you e giving less. Give rice khichdi. Modak. Kheer. Milk products. Sweets. Daal with added jaggery etc would add upon carbs. Along with this make sure liquid diet specially milk should not have been reduced. Yes I do agree weight is bit less for given age. And solutions are as per I mentioned above. Eggs should be full boiled and preferably egg white rather then egg yolk. Regards.

Hi. I am from India and my son is 2 years 5 months. His birth weight was 2.89 kgs. He is a very fussy eater. He does not drink milk while he is awake, so I have to feed him with a bottle when he sleeps I am giving him tonoferon drops and ostocalcium syrup but not regularly. Please suggest if I can add all change his Iron and Calcium supplements.

General Physician,
First of all you stop bottle and feed from glass. The vitamins you give are good enough .Most children are fussy eaters and you just monitor weight

Hello doctor. My baby is of 10 days now. And still there is no breast milk formed. Pls suggest as I don't want to keep him on powdered milk. This is my first pregnancy. Pls suggest how can I increase the flow of the milk.

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Delhi
It is nice that you strongly wish to breastfeed him. For first 7 days or so the milk produced is known as colostrum which is yellow coloured ,small in quantity &high in antibody content. But it is sufficient to meet the needs of baby. Pl give powdered milk as per directions written on the can if at all it has to be given. Pl give cup or katori ¬ bottle. GOVT OF INDIA guidelines recommend exclusive breastfeeding for first 6 months of life. The best stimulus for milk production is frequent sucking day &night. Have balanced diet & be confident. Have loving thoughts for your baby. Keep him in direct skin to skin contact. Regards&best wishes.
