My son is of 4 months old is not passing motion regularly. He will not pass motion for more than a week. Is there any natural way to make it regular. Can we start giving him solid food like raggi. To make his motion regular can we give him castor oil? pls give me a reply at the earliest

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Don' t worry about motion so long as it is soft and passing gas regularly. You need to start weaning after six months not earlier if weight gain is in normal range

There is some miscommunication between you and your doctor. Iron supplement should not be given during fever. Give her paracetamol to bring down her fever and re consult your pediatrician.

Hi. Continue previous medication. Along with that few homeopathic medicines like spongia tosta, antim tart etc etc helps for lung related issues. It might help to certain extent I guess so. If Bp is not recordable then admit her nearby hospital urgently. Take care.

Her growth is excellent for her age. You should be happy about that. Let her take family diet. No need for any food supplements. Being thin /slim is usually constitutional and not linked to any disease or disability as long child is alert active and responsive Arun shah.

Do burping after every feed for 5 to 10 min then only make the baby lie down. While doing burping only there will be little vomiting, for which you need not worry. For little vomiting just neglect nothing will happen. Give domstal drops if vomiting is more. After few months vomitings will subside totally.

Hi doctor, my daughter is 1.9 years old. She is eating dust regularly despite of stopping her to do so. Recently, when I consultant children specialist, he said that there is a iron deficiency and he prescribed iron tonic and said that she will stop eating dust or clay. But this is not stopping yet all. Also, she is not speaking much except one word'mamma. Please help me in finding solution for her to stop this habit and speak some words. Thanking you,

Pediatrician, Pune
Eating clay /dust occurs in children with iron deficiency anemia, your pediatrician has done the right thing by giving iron supplements continue the same for 3-6 months, children tend to become iron deficient if they take excess of milk, restrict her milk intake to 2 cups per day, increase her iron intake in diet with substances made of jaggery, green vegetables, kishmish khajur, interact with her spend more time playing with her to improve her verbal skills.

Shivering can be seen in any bacterial or viral infection. Give syp. Paracetomol for fever every 6 hourly. If it doesn't subsides even after 3 days blood test should be done.

It's better to be safe. So avoid breast feeding. Even otherwise you need to stop breast feeding as your child needs more nutrition to grow. Consult your doctor and follow the instructions. Keep reviewing your health as well as the growth (milestones) of your child. You can come back with more details (health reports) about your health so that it becomes easy to know the case.

Hi, My 7 year old girl is so attached to us that she sleeps right in the middle of us and always puts us to sleep before she does. No matter what she doesn't want to sleep separately. And you know what. Also is this the right time to talk to her about sex and how much info should be given to her, considering some info could make kids curious and try to know more by experimenting and exploring that is way too unsafe. Please advise. Regards.

Try to avoid speaking or doing much about sex in front of her and also slowly make her to get acquainted to sleep separately as this generation is too inquisitive to learn things easily especially with things like these which we try to hide out from them. Don't worry but make her to learn to sleep separately as she is 7 now.
