If there is no other problem, try to modulate her diet. Increase protein an roughage in her diet. She should take less of fat and carbohydrates. Give her more of vegetables except potato, and salad. Pulses should also form important ingredient of her diet.

You have to see if your nipples are retracted and intake of milk is monitored by weekly or bi weekly weight monitoring of the baby.

Your baby's weight is adequate for the age & whatever foods you are giving is correct. Some children pass stools as soon as they are fed. It is called as exaggerated gastrocolic reflex. As long as the stools are well formed nothing to worry about it.

Hello doctor my baby is 6 month old he is suffering from dry cough and cold. Which medicine should be used?
Hi, Give following medications: 1. SYP. SINAREST-AF 1.5 ml three times a day for 3 to 5 days. 2. SYP. ASTHALIN 1.5 ml three times a day for 3 to 5 days. Both the medicines are syrups not drops, check the medicines while buying. If your baby develops difficulty in breathing / difficulty in taking feeds / fever, then consult nearby child specialist.

Hi your concern is totally valid, but the problem with extremly low birth weight babies is that even if they look good, there are chances they might go in apnea (sudden cessation of breathing) and they are prone to temp irreugalrities thats why doctors are not discharging the baby. I suggest let them do their work and take discharge are per the doctors advice.

I don't know what can be problem.just feed the infant on demand a8lmost 2 hourly.you will see milk will be suffice as judged by weight gain of child.just see you must have good size nipples for easy sucking.we avoid using other milk.if very necessary than feed cows milk fresh one third diluted,fully boiled by spoon only.

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.

Continue exclusive breastfeeding till 6 months of age. Regards&best wishes for baby.

My child is 1yr 9 months old, suffering from cough and fever from last 3 days. Not only this time very often he suffer for the same. This time Amoxycillin oral suspension I. P and terbutaline sulphate, Bromhexine Hydrochloride, Guaiphenesin Syrup started from yesterday. What more treatment is needed for him?

Most often it's viral infection. Fever usually settles down in 3 to 4 days. Cough takes 7 to 10 days. Continue same treatment. Small children get frequent infections because of low immunity.

Reason of crying of children are diffrents. Why your baby crying is due to hunger or abdominal pain or any bite or any other pain or infection first it is rule out by doctor. And take treatment according to that. Upto that give him koflet syrup 2 ml thrice in day. And you take normal diet like chapati subji and avoid fruits.

It is nor due to lack of immunity that we or children get fever. Rather , it is is the invasion of our body by bacteria or virus and need treatment

Child is now addicted to breast sucking whether milk is not present. You have to be very careful. First try soup. Of cereals and curd prepared at home. Self feeding is essential part. Thirdly let him sit on chair with plate in front. No request, no pampering the child. It will gradually changed to semi solid food. No one in feel sorry even if doesn't eat food. Breast should be stopped in 5 days time by keeping food every three hourly six times a day.

Well hardly any milk output at 2-3 years baby. It is too late to start food. Cereals and chapaties, bread. Now is time to give find taste of child so that it will be easier to switch over. Cereals diet is important. Milk has poor calories and if we try to correct it, result in too much protein which will bring other complication. Thanks.
