My daughter is 4 years old and weighs only 15 kgs. She does not have any ailments and is very active. But her weight seems below normal and she looks skinny. She eats normally although with a few tantrums and loves regular fruits and vegetables. Is there any way by which her weight can improve?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
If she is active she is well, and active children usually do not put on extra weight. Give her food containing proteins like milk products and dhal and pulses.

Milk and cerelac are now no longer required at this age. Start with rice or ragi flour porridge or soups and fruit juices to begin with. Let me know if the child has hard stools as it is a common reason for food refusal.

I am a 23 year old lady, I used to feed my baby and its been 14months for I am feeding her now when I stopped feeding her my left breast which my daughter used to suck more became as hard as rock, I could feel the hardness and due to milk filled in it got enlarged. I kept on controlling my pain for 2days. But then it was unbearable so somebody told me to pour out some milk out of it, so I pressed it hardly and poured out a lot of milk. I found my pain lesser and felt light but my left breast has become larger than the other, I wanna ask is it normal?

Pediatrician, Pune
If the supply is more than the demand, it is likely to cause problems, there should be an equilibrium, try to breast feed from both breasts, alternatively. As the left breast is producing more milk, it has become larger than the other, once breast feeding is stopped, things will be back to normal, try to give food to the baby as much as possible, breast feeding should reduce by some time.

Delivery done for my wife 5 days before. But breast milk was not producing adequately. So insufficient diet for baby. can milk formation be done by some food? Any other diet can be given?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Milk supply is dependent on stimulation by the baby provides while feeding. More you breastfeed your baby, more milk will be produced. Try to feed your baby more often if your milk supply is less. Pumping your breasts after feeding also can stimulate more milk production. Two main causes of less breastmilk supply is poor latch or scheduled feeding. Baby should not nipple feed, rather should breastfeed. Baby should have wide open mouth and the nipple should go towards back of the mouth. There are certain medicines which can increase quantity of milk. If your child is sleeping well and active with your milk then milk is adequate for the baby. A substance that increases milk supply is called a galactagogue. Some of the most commonly used herbal galactagogues are fenugreek, blessed thistle, and alfalfa. There are also several prescription medications that can increase milk supply. Domperidone and metoclopramide increase the production of prolactin and thereby breast milk also. Shatavari powder is an ayurvedic preparation that can increase milk production.

Hi lybrate-user, If your child is regularly having strengthening and healthy food and supplements too. But unable to gain weight. We need to go with Ayurvedic Nutrition .I will recommend for "Genetic Scanning" It will tell, what of his vital organs are in strain that's why he is not able to gain weight and strength. What food (fruit, vegetable, cereals.) according to his prakriti - Vata, Pitta, Kapha are best suitable for him. Sometime we are having all the good food in our diet .but if it is not suitable to our Prakriti ,it will not get digest and absorbed by our body, thus will increase by- produces and toxin level. We will feel lethargic and low. If you want .we can explain you further over call .)

I am 40 years old. I have a 14 year old son. I am sure he masturbates daily. Does masturbation will reduce his height growth as he is just 4 foot now. Please help is masturbation good or bad for him at this height growing age?

Just leave it. Nothing happens even though he masturbates. This is age related phenomena especially in the teenage group. This is a temporary phenomena as he grows up and the habit subsides. See to it he won't go for bad habits. Masturbation is not related to other health conditions. Its habit of psychological status. His height and other health condition is not related to masturbation. Only thing is try to divert his attention by engaging him some other activity like more studies, sports, some work etc. Most of the time don't leave him alone.

My daughter 16 months old has been having diarrhea for 1 week. No fever. No vomiting. Active baby.

MBBS
General Physician,
My daughter 16 months old has been having diarrhea for 1 week. No fever. No vomiting. Active baby.
How many times she passes stools and what is the type of stools are the questions. Still let me tell you 10 to 15 times also sometimes we consider as normal. Most important thing is what is the general condition and how is the babie's mood. Are there any other symptoms e. G. Rash around anusara or continuous cry etc.

Homoeopathy is ideal for all ages for most of ailments acting a better substitute for antibiotics, anti allergic & other kinds of medicine. Today most common problem especially in children is cold & cough which is due to lack of IMMUNITY to fight against infections in our surroundings. Homoeopathy acts as a best source of medicine to boost immunity & fight against infections. Homoeopathy also offers treatment in all allergic, acute & long lasting chronic diseases by improving immunity. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance

I am a breastfeeding mother of 9 month old. I have PCOs and looking to reduce weight. Can I drink detoxing Sassy Water while breastfeeding?

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Mumbai
PCOS needs medical management too, only weight loss is not the treatment. Still meet gynecologist and follow the advice. Sassy water is made by different recipes so which one you are talking I don't know, but usual natural ingredients, like lemon, cucumber, mint etc. Doesn't cause any trouble to child to mother who breastfeed and consume sassy water.

Still it is not very clear that dtap can be replaced by" w" or vice versa during primary vaccination for maintaining its efficacy but may be replaced for booster doses. I suggest since you are not living at place where" a" is not available, switch over to vaccine which is available at your place and continue as per schedule. There may be substitute for maker of vaccine but not for vaccine. Your query about difference of two vaccine is very pertinent in today's scenario. Dtap (a) v/s dtwp (w)- both are effective" a" is slightly lesser painful, causes low fever but immunity is shorter and is costly to parents than" w" a" was being promoted on ground of its painless & no fever. There are specific vaccines for specific pneumonia. Every vaccine is good. For these vaccines, consult pediatrician face to face.
