It will not come again if you lose weight and have a healthy lifestyle and diet and exercise. Yes you can conceived naturally too. First periods after delivery can come as late as 9 month. But please rule out pregnancy if in doubt. Also if it does not come by 12 months c your gynecologist.

Hi mother milk is best for the baby. The formula you are giving is ok but is to be given only if required. All mothers always produce adequate amount of milk. Be confident. Take care.

There are chances of getting damage of permanent teeth if cavity of milk teeth not get treated. On other hand cavities may cause pain and difficulty in eating. Bad teeth affect appearance too. Please get it repair or filled soon by dentist.

My Son Is 19 Months Old. His Weight Is 9kgs And Look Like Weak. He Is Not Getting His Personality. But He Is Very Active. He will not Eat Healthy Food, Juices, Soups.

Growth depends on lot of factors like genetics, nutrition, physical and psychosocial environment. Average weight at this age is about 11 kgs. It also depends on the child's birth weight and growth potential. Children become more active and less interested in food at this age. Child should be offered balanced food and allowed to self feed as much as possible.

My baby girl is 9 month old please give me diet to increase her weight she is just 7 kg.

As your baby is 9 months old you might have started other foods apart from milk. You should give her a well balanced diet which includes protein and carbohydrates and fresh fruits. Give her khicdi ,rice, roti, eggs, chicken soup if non veg, home made paneer and fruits like banana and apple puree. Make it a point that your food is cooked and mashed properly so that your baby can digest it properly. Weight should not be so much a matter of concern as long as the baby is healthy and active.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
It is called supine sleeping. Try to avoid this. Let the baby sleep in prone position or in sideways with left arm side down and right arm side up.

Chronic Gas Problem - Facts You Should Know About it

MBBS
General Physician, Chandigarh
Chronic Gas Problem - Facts You Should Know About it

Almost all of us have experienced bloating, gas or an upset stomach. Yet some people experience this problem at a chronic level. Gas occurs in the stomach and intestines due to breakdown of food into energy. All of us pass gas, however some people do more than others. An average person passes gas 5-20 times a day.

An upset stomach can often cause problems and can be a difficult battle for many people. Although the symptoms of gas problems often relate to an improper diet, yet other factors may be also responsible.

Causes and Symptoms of Gas Problems

  1. Swallowing air: The swallowed air which is not burped out, passes through the digestive system and is released through the opening of the anus. Hiccups can also occur if you have swallowed excessive air.
  2. Diet: The reaction of different foods varies from one person to another. Also foods that lead to odorous gas may also vary from person to person. Yet, spicy foods and dairy products are the most common causes of gas. Example - Beans, cabbage, onions, radishes, eggs, carbonated drinks, sugar, packaged foods etc.
  3. Medications: Certain medicines and supplements, including prescription drugs, can lead to gas problems and bloating. Further, medications which change the hormonal balance in the body can also cause bloating.
  4. Medical problems: Certain medical conditions such as Irritable bowel syndrome or bowel obstruction can also lead to an upset stomach.

Common symptoms of gas problems include gas pain, cramping, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. In the worst of cases, gas and bloating indicate colon cancer. Such people experience rapid weight loss, anaemia and blood in stools.

Treatment
Modifying your lifestyle, in particular your dietary practices, is essential to a healthy recovery.

  • Avoiding foods such as spaghetti, oats, bran, barley, banana, bread etc. which contain high fibre content is important.
  • You can opt for over the counter medications after consulting your physician. Homeopathy and Ayurveda can be also opted as alternative forms of treatment.

My son 5 month usually give out milk in the form of curd. Is there any problem of digestion. Pls advice.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Thank you for your query. It is very common for infants of this age to throw up the excess milk, if any. This appears curdled as it has been acted upon by the gastric juices. In case the weight of your son is not increasing then we shall like to intervene for this regurgitation.

The underrated vegetable is know for its hefty nutritional values. It is a known diuretic (which helps to remove excess water and toxins) from the system and also help in gastroinstestinal problems like flatulence(gas),indigestion and acidity. It surely makes a healing punch.

My son is 2.5 month, initially as I had flat nipple so I was using artificial nipple to feed my baby. But now he is not ready to feed directly. Is it safe to make him feed with artificial nipple until he breast feed? Does it affect his gum and disturb teething process? Is there any option to make him feed directly?

General Physician,

My kid is allergic to even a small change in temperature. She start coughing as soon as anything changes, even after having some type of food. Do we have permanent cure for this allergy?

Avoid the stuff from which allergy does happen! thats the only solution. And sometimes inhalers do help to reduce severity related to lungs. You can undergo allergy testing to know exact cause of allergy or allergens we say.

My daughter has allergic problem in out side food she get rashes on hand and legs she feel like doing scratches suggests me some medicine.

Postgraduate Programme in Pediatric Nutrition, Diploma in Pediatric Emergency Medicine, MRCPCH, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Bangalore
There is not enough information to link the rash to food allergy. Food allergy causing rash is often dramatic and comes very rapidly after eating. Frequently associated with other symptoms like vomiting, wheeze and circulatory problems. If rash is confined to legs and arms, there may be another local irritation that is causing the rash. I would suggest a more detailed consultation to diagnose the problem before treatment.
