Saving Your Child's Teeth :

Having good non decayed milk teeth with spacing between them is good for the child. There is a probability that if there are no spaces between milk teeth ( before 6 years of age) - the chances of having irregular teeth become more later on when the permanent teeth erupt. If there is crowding/ irregularity on the eruption of permanent teeth, it is better to show it to a Pedodontist ( Child Dental Specialist), by 7 to 8 yeras of age - who will help you and the child get the teeth into alignment without having to go through braces later on. This way there will be less chances of decay in child's milk and permanent teeth.

In the initial few weeks baby will try to feed more and it could be every 2 hours or less. If the baby is feeding too frequently may suggest that it is not latching well or only nipple feeding. So try to correct the technique in that case and baby should have good mouthful of your breast than only nipple. You should breast feed on demand means whenever baby wants to feed and as long as baby wants to feed. You should breastfeed throughout the day and also in night. Day by day baby’s demand will keep on increasing because weight gain which is mat maximum in the first 6 months.

Have to measure and see the child. Usually it is the just the feeling of parents and by the time they walk, say by one year there will not be any problem. You can ask privately.

Vaccines given in Govt sector (where I work) are essential to prevent major illnesses seen in children like polio, diphtheria, measles, tetanus, and rubella and other vaccines are called optional to prevent not so dangerous diseases. They are costly but can be given to protect from typhoid, diarrhoea, typhoid. Even if not given, you need not worry. If you can afford you give them as well.

Just make sure your paediatrician follows the growth chart n rule out any family history of diabetes n other concerns. If already done then we can wait n watch. Breast feeding is another reason for good weight which your paediatrician would monitor each time you see them.

Just remember to make a note of milestone for the baby and also take notes of the physical activity and weight also depends on the previous record on his birth day and if there are restricted activities than we have to think about the cause of weight gain.

She is apparently alright. Weight is not the criteria for health. Obesity in children is grave health hazard. If she is active, she is healthy. You need regular advice on child rearing. And you may do a test for her, ask me privately.
