Hello, you should give him Kindival , 2 tabs thrice daily for a good sleep and behaviour. You should develop the practice of spoon feeding because this the best way to avoid unwanted infections. If your baby get used to having a bottle-feed every time he fall asleep, he might develop an association between the bottle and sleep. He might then find it hard to fall asleep without a bottle. There is a risk of tooth decay Milk is quite high in sugar. Soaking your baby’s teeth in it overnight can cause tooth decay. There is a risk of ear infections When a baby drinks lying down, milk can flow through to the ear cavity, which can cause ear infections. Thanks , take care.

It is possible that your baby is allergic to some component of the soap or lotion you are using. Another possibility is seborrheic / atopic dermatitis. Pl consult your local pediatrician who will advise you after evaluating the problem.

If your child has mild autistic features and can speak 2-3 words then she should do well with intensive therapies, this is the right age to act. You should learn yourself and work with therapist.

The best possible way while dealing with allergy is to prevent exposure to the allergens that is to say you need to avoid avoid contact of your son with all those things that cause allergic reactions. The present episode can be treated with cetirizine based on his weight. Warm regards.

Appropriately thick homogenous food with added sugar / jaggery and ghee/butter/oil to make it energy dense should be given. Take cereal and pulses (?what you eat at your home) in 2: 1 ratio add ghee/butter/ oil, add vegetables make thick khichadi. You can take various pulses, sprout it, dry in sun and grind to make flour and make porridge from it, add sugar/ jaggery, oil/ ghee. Give milkshakes of various seasonal fruits. Mashed boiled fruits and veggies can be given. Give three meals and two snacks. Each time give 2-3 tsp of food. By 9-10 months start finely chopped and mashed food approx 1/2 bowl each time.

It is best to give only breast milk till 4 months of age and do not give anything else like gutti. If you still give other milk, do not give in bottle and feed with a spoon.

He has taken just 4 times of normal dose of paracetamol for this age. I don't think it may harm. Give him good quantity of water and keep watching for any abnormal activities. If so, consult pediatrician. Side effects shall pass away after 8 to 12 hours.

Stop feeding milk frequently. It is only when child is hungry that he will start accepting food. It will take lot of patience on parents side. This is most common problem faced by all parents.

At the age of 2 years pre schoolers speak more than few words. I child's understanding is OK and only verbal communication. I.e expression is lagging, a speech therapist / speech pathologist will be able to guide you how to interact with the child to elicit responses and develop communication using suitable modalities. It has been observed that children who enrol in early intervention show better prognosis compared to children who seek delayed diagnosis and treatment. If there is not much lag compared to peer group, home speech stimulation will help. Otherwise speech therapist will be able to develop expressive language skills. Good luck.

Keep the child neat and clean and stop him to eat soil. Massage with ice cube after tying it in cloth on the gums in the inflammation of the gums. Do not give more salty and sour things to eat. If the child has suffered from fever with cold and catarrh, checkup by a doctor and give treatment properly.

Baby Feeding Routine

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Baby Feeding Routine
Complementary feeding

Complementary feeding / weaning should be started after 150 days of life.

Its better to start home prepared semi solids first. If you are not confident in preparing food initially you can give cerelac rice / cerelac wheat/ nestum rice etc.

Add a new food item only after trial of 3 days. I mean don't give new food everyday. Wait for any intolerance to a particular food.

Fruit juices orange, apple can be prepared at home and can be given from 7 months.

Mashed potato can be given by 7-8 months.

Egg can be give by 8-9 months. Give egg yolk initially and the egg white later.
