Ask the child to gargle with lukewarm water with some pinch of salt in it. Even a mouthwash gargle would be better option to gargle. Do not let the child swallow the mouthwash. This should be done atleast thrice in a day.

Is breastfeeding on lying down position can harm my baby in anyway? Should I stop it?

While offering breast feeds, baby's body should be supported and head should be at a level little higher than the rest of the body. This would allow effective breast feeding and at the same time minimise risk of milk entering breathing tubes and lungs and causing cough.

It is normal behavior. At this age different child behave differently depending on attitude of parents towards their children. It is pleasuring to baby. I personally believe not make her conscious of it as bad.

It is very possible that the sores are due to too much face to face contact. The child can also get common cold and cough due to this. You can gently and respectfully ask your elders not to do it often, telling that the doctor has asked you avoid it.

As such if a child is having normal indian food then there is no need of a supplement at all but if child is not eating properly then first approach should be towards proper eating habits and not just to give supplements bcz no supplement can give you proper nutrition still if you want to give then they all have different nutritive value and you can give them alternatively.

That you r considering phlegm may not be phlegm. It may be collection of saliva in throat which vibrates and sounds due to breathing which is normal at this age. In diseased chest congestion, baby can not be active n feed properly. Coughing may be due to irritation of throat by so called phlegm. Baby swallow it now n then.

Your baby reports are absolutely normal see in case of a viral fever it last for 3 days and its symptoms subsides automatically you just need to give antipyeretic medicine that could be a calpol or Ibugesic syrup which will reduce her fever not to do any other test which are not mandatory to do in the case of a such a small baby.

He should be gently and lovingly encouraged to stop this habit But do not scold or beat him which lead to aggressive denial

Learning Disabilities results from a difference in the way a person's brain is "wired" Children with learning disabilities are as smart or smarter than their peers. But they may have difficulty reading, writing, spelling, reasoning, recalling and/or organizing information if left to figure things out by themselves or if taught in conventional ways.
A learning disability can't be cured or fixed; it is a lifelong issue. With the right support and intervention, however, children with learning disabilities can succeed in school and lead successful lives, often distinguished careers later in life.
Parents can help children with learning disabilities achieve such success by encouraging their strengths, knowing their weaknesses, understanding the educational system, working with professionals and learning about strategies for dealing with specific difficulties.This condition affects the brain's ability to receive and process information. This disorder can make it problematic for a person to learn as quickly or in the same way as someone who is not affected by any such issues. First step in helping such brilliant minds is understanding without judging.

My Doctor have advised me to breastfeed my baby in every 2 hours. But how much time should I allow my baby per feeding?

My Doctor have advised me to breastfeed my baby in every 2 hours. But how much time should I allow my baby per feeding?
Current consensus is breast feeding on demand. So if the baby is hungry he or she will cry. There is no fixed time needed per feed. If he or she is full then they will stop sucking. Also it is best to alternate between breasts every time.
