Hello. Don't worry, babies usually get greenish stools during dentition as they put things into their mouth. Give your baby homoeopathic medicine - Chamomilla 30/ thrice a day for 1 week. Get back to me.

Shaken baby syndrome: what are the signs and symptoms?
Shaken baby syndrome (SBS) is a constellation of medical findings (often referred to as a "triad"): subdural hematoma, retinal bleeding, and brain swelling from which physicians, consistent with current medical understanding, infer child abuse caused by violent shaking. In a majority of cases there is no visible sign of external injury. Shaken baby syndrome is a subset of the broader form of child abuse termed abusive head trauma. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identifies SBS as "an injury to the skull or intracranial contents of an infant or young child (< 5 years of age) due to inflicted blunt impact and/or violent shaking"

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking adhd (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? if so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician
Ask Free Question
Current medications do not cure adhd. Rather, they control the symptoms for as long as they are taken. Medications can help a child pay attention and complete schoolwork. It is not clear, however, whether medications can help children learn better. Adding behavioral therapy, counseling, and practical support can help children with adhd and their families to better cope with everyday problems. Nimh-funded research has shown that medication works best when treatment is regularly monitored by the prescribing doctor and the dose is adjusted based on the child's needs.

The best solution is brava and fat grafting to your breasts which will increase the size and improve the tightness without breast scars. The other method is breast by implants by making a cut in each breast.

Dear Mom, You should not give formula, and you should give her Exclusive breastfeeding. Crying may not be equivalent to hunger. If your baby is passing 6 or more urine per 24 hour, then breastmilk is sufficient. If you still have doubt, weigh her once a week . if she is gaining more than 140 gm per week then she is having enough milk. Benefit s of Exclusive breastfeeding are many, u can find out from net, and definite ly formula can be potentially harmful. So please please give your baby exclusive breastfeeding that is the best gift you can give to her

My baby is 6months old. Between how much gap should I feed other semisolid food. For good health and weight gain.
Hi lybrate-user, 6 months is perfect age to introduce semisolid diet. Usually the gap between 2 meals should be minimum 3hours but still it all depends upon child's demand coz some kids may not even eat for a duration of 4hrs after last meal or some may require feeds every 2hrs. But one thing I will strictly advise never force feed your child. Every meal time should be very relaxed so you can see your child growing happily and confident even.

It is better to avoid formula and give only breast milk. You tell the age of the infant. Fruit juice can be given and horlicks also. Always give more natural vitamins in food form. Ask me in case of doubts.

How to tackle a hyperactive child of 7 years who lacks concentration but fetches good marks in academics.As a result his mother hits him quite often. How to handle?

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
Stop hitting at once, it will have unbearable consequences in his future life due to psychological trauma. You should appreciate him for academic achievements and love him unconditionally. Visit child psychologist to get a proper perspective of his hyperactive behaviour. Please stop beating/hitting him, control your emotions.
