My little sister is one month short of her 3rd birthday. We stopped feeding her milk from bottle as we came across articles saying it is harmful. Now her diet has reduced a lot and because of that she has become very thin. Also, she is always in a bad mood. Is there something we can do about this?

When you keep your child on milk for a long time they do not eat other food. Do not develop liking for other food items. So we recommend parents to keep milk minimum in their child's diet. It just fills your child's stomach so that he does not eat other food. Now try to introduce variety of food items. Add ghee, oil a fruit every day. Use milk to prepare kheer. Or dalia porridge. 1 and half year old child should be able to eat all food items that an adult consumes.

Is Oats are good for babies age upto 5 years. Oats are meant for reducing for weight or I have some wrong understanding.

General Physician,
Oats are high fiber complex carbohydrate and is not necessarily a weight reduction drug. It can be given to babies if they like it

My 14months daughter was born with low birth weight (1.75kgs). She doubled her birth weight by 5 months, but since then her weight has not increased much. Started solids after six months. Before that she was exclusively breastfed. She has got a mild pulmonary valvular stenosis but docs told it has got nothing to do with her weight gain. She is only 4kgs now. Twice during winter she has to be hospitalised with respiratory distress with upper respiratory tract infection (viral). Since than she was on nebulizer for 5 months. Done many blood tests there to find out the reason behind her poor growth as well but all test gave normal report. Only she has very high eosinophil level and high WBC count. Mentally she is alert and very active. Kindly advise what to do to improve her condition of FTT. Right now I am giving her high calorie foods like banana, sweet potato, egg yolks daily. She does not like milk at all. So I am making porridges n pudding with it and feeding her. Also she is suffering from chronic constipation since she started solids. From past two months she has to be given milk of magnesia twice daily.

Your baby is premature born now weighing 4kg only at 14 months of age which is definitely very low. Height has not been mentioned. All investigations reveal nothing abnormal. Get her checked for developmental/ Hormonal problem. Increase fat in her diet.

7 months baby is suffering from blocked nose and severe coughing. Does nebulising with saline water helps? Or steam is a better option. We have both the things at home. Does nebulising pose any long term dependence?

No nebulisation has no dependence...normal saline is alright...but if nebulisation apparatus is not kept clean and sterile then there is risk of transmission of organisms through aerosol therapy....so do not make it a habbit of nebulising frequently...you can use other options

I am a premature baby when I was born. So the nurse gave me a formulated milk instead of breast milk, so did I have any risk of disease when I becoming old.

Formula milk is designed according to babys needs, so you are not at any risk per say. It is quite helpful for premature baby as they dont have strength to take breast feeding which needs lot of efforts. When you gain weight, you can switch to breast milk, otherwise your mother can express breast milk and that can be given orally by syringe, so you wont have to fully depend upon formula feed and mother also starts getting more milk.

In newborn babies blood glucose levels should be above 40. To monitor the blood glucose levels repeatedly (2nd hourly) and to maintain levels above 40 by giving iv or oral glucose liquids they shifted to icu to be on the safer side even though baby is fine.

Conditional, breastfeeding mothers need to change positions while they are not feeding. They can sleep according to their comfort. However, when they are feeding then they need to lay side se side position some mothers, particularly larger breasted women, find they will need to roll themselves and their baby over to their other side to feed from the second breast, whilst others will find that once they have fed from the lower breast they can just lean forward and feed from the top breast without changing sides. If you do choose the second alternative you will need to make sure that the lower breast is well drained before switching to the upper breast so that blockages in the milk ducts to not occur.

Dear lybrate user Tepid sponging is very important, put a wet towel in his armpit, groins, forehead. Inspite of meftagesic ds d fever is not subsiding then may b he ll need a Sumol suppository, which will give him d instant result. Secondly u can start Aconite 200 (homoepathic medicine) 2 pills 4 hrly for 3 days. For a suppository, dose should b calculated according to wt of d baby.

Looking thin is a relative term which is more often for loving parents. Growth is assessed by weight and height. Start well coocked home made mashed solids and semi solids, if not yet started.
