Hi. My daughter is 5 yrs old. She had malaria last week. We have completed the doses as directed by the physician. But still she is having fever this morning.

Sometimes malaria is resistant. Depends on what medication was used by your doctor. Or malaria may be gone, but because she is weak, she might have picked up some other infection. Kindly go back to the doctor who treated her for malaria and get her checked up.

My daughter is 14 months old. She had undergone surgery for not passing her first stool due to meconium ileus. I had came to know that meconium ileus will be due to cystic fibrosis. Please inform me about the symptoms of cystic fibrosis and other reasons for having meconium ileus.

Meconium ileus (mi) is a condition where the content of the baby's bowel (meconium) is extremely sticky and causes the bowel to be blocked at birth. In most cases the bowel itself is complete and intact but it is just the inside that is blocked. In some cases there has been a twist of the bowel before birth, which has caused the bowel to be blind ending (an atresia). Most babies with meconium ileus (90%) have cystic fibrosis (cf) and it is this that has caused the sticky meconium. Meconium ileus is a rare condition affecting only 1 in 25, 000 babies. For further doubts and regular advice on child rearing as your family doctor you can ask personally.

My baby (9 weeks old) have passed stool on last Monday (25/09/17), from Monday till today he have not passed stool.
Irregular bowel habbits are normal in babies they might pass stool after 3 days, 5 days or more. The baby might cry due to gas formation. You can stimulate the anal part with the help of earbud coated with vaselline. But be carefull as you might hurt the baby. If it persist for long consult a pediatrician to rule out any underlying pathology present.

Getting Green potty is not to be worried but get his stools examined by a laboratory and follow up with reports.

This is very normal. It takes time for some babies to get adjust to the new environment outside mother's womb. Till than, have patience.
