Can I give junior horlics to my baby, who is one year old? What kinds of food he should have in this age?
These are of no benefit other than changing the taste. Give whatever you eat in a form which he can eat easily. Vegetables, pulses, rice, egg etc. Soups good. Juices do not benefit much. Reduce milk.

Mustard oil is very strong for baby skin, so it can causes rash and skin burn so don't use it. If baby is cranky because of itching or burning use caladril lotion local application. You can use coconut oil, olive oil etc for massage.

Get her examined for open mouth which may be either due to nostril block or some other reason. Bilirubin if physiological, shall hve no adverse effect on her growth. No bottle feed at any time only exclusive breast feeding till 6 months of age and continue feeding thereafter with supplementary food. Give adequate feed for good health. U may give gentle bath now. No need to clean tongue or to put any thing in mouth except breast.

Hi. Your baby might have a fungal infection or it may be just dry skin. Sometimes, even worms in the stomach can cause such symptoms. This can only be decided on examination. So see a dermatologist and take opinion. Meanwhile, give her a deworming medicine.

Depends on genetic factors as well. So if he is doing good not falling ill it's fine. But still increase carb in diet like dates, kheer, sheera, yoghurt, modak, laddu, etc and protein like soya, rajma, sprouts, peanut butter, etc.

Children's differ in their tastes and habits. Instead of milk you can give curdled milk before it turns sour. Add little curd to milk and keep for two hours and it will be just like porridge and you can feed.

Hello. Breast feeding is the best feeding for the baby. All baby usually demand feed after around 2 hrs so nothing wrong with the baby. Pls continue breast feeding even at night. Don't start top feeding just because you r tited. Give top feeding only when the baby is hungry even after bf. Resta you can discuss with lactation counsellor.

General Physician,
One or two glasses of milk is enough. Even if he is not taking it, there is no problem as he is eating roti and other food. You can try adding boost or horlicks and see if he likes to drink milk.

Burp him regularly after each meal. When you put him to sleep ensure that the head end is elevated about 15 degrees. This is self limiting and usually finishes by 6 months of age

Is it necessary to get the vaccination of brain fever to the child of 5 months.We rae residing at indirapuram, ghaziabad. If yes, then which vaccination and how much dose do it have and approx cost for the same? thanks .

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Three doses of hib vaccine is usually given in combination with dpt and/or hepatitis b. Cost depends on brand used and doctor's fees and could be around one thousand rupees. Other vaccine for meningococcal meningitis is used in high risk babies or those who demand and who can afford. All require 3 doses for primary immunisation at one month interval and a booster dose after one year
