I assume you mean bowel movements. Give just 2 milk feeds, stop your feeds and give him 3-4 solid meals, which includes whatever you cook at home, make sure it has lots of fibre.

Small objects like threads will not stay in the nose for long period. They usually come out while blowing. If the doctor has confirmed it's absence you can ignore. If any blood starts coming from that nose better you show to another ent surgeon.

No never. This is a normal cycle for first 4 months of age. As during pregnancy when mom walks, baby swings like a jula, and even mom sleeps. The pendulum movement of baby stops in side tummy is his mom, so they get awake. So same sleep cycle continues post birth also. For atleast 4 months. Make sure child takes feeding well during night and gradually it would improve.

In small children atleast for first 3 months it is better to avoid going out and visitors. Other than that maintenance of good hygiene and every 3 hrly breastfeeding will be sufficient.

It may be a complication of diarrhoea like hypokalemia (reduced potassium in the blood) or intussusception. It's better to show to your pediatrician.

Iron tablet (total of 100 tablet) during pregnancy is definitely needed. Sometimes iron increases the nausea and vomiting tendency of first trimester of pregnancy, so some give that from 2nd trimester.

“Look, Mom! I Have a Loose Tooth!

Ask Free Question
It’s a pretty special moment when your child runs to you for the first time and tells you their tooth is loose. For a child, loose teeth means that they’ll be a big kid soon. For parents, it means their little one is growing up fast…maybe a little too fast. So what should you do when your child comes to you with the exciting news? Here are the things every parent should know about losing that first tooth.

When do kids start losing their baby teeth?
Children will lose their first tooth around age 6. They’ll continue to lose 3–4 teeth per year until they have lost all 20 of their baby teeth by about age 12.

Which teeth fall out first?
Baby teeth usually fall out in the order they came in. The front bottom teeth are often the first to go. The last teeth to fall out are usually the big molars in the back of the mouth.

Does losing a tooth hurt?
Losing a tooth shouldn’t hurt very much. If it is very painful, it probably means that your child is trying to pull a tooth that’s not quite ready to come out. If the pain gets bad, you can put an over-the-counter, pain-relieving gel on the gum surrounding the tooth. Make sure it’s for children, and don’t use it too much or too often.

Should I pull a loose tooth?
The short answer is no. It can tear the gum tissue around the tooth and cause injury. Allow your child to gently wiggle their tooth. But tell them they should let a tooth fall out on its own.

What happens if my child swallows their tooth?
Nothing, really. Accidentally swallowing a tooth isn’t a big deal. It will simply pass through the body.

Will there be a lot of blood when my child loses their tooth?
There shouldn’t be very much blood at all. When there is a lot of blood, it is usually caused by forcing a tooth out before it is ready. To stop bleeding, have your child bite down on gauze, cotton ball or a clean cloth until the bleeding slows.

When do permanent teeth start to grow in?
Usually it takes a few weeks for the permanent tooth to begin to poke through. It will take a few months more for the tooth to fully grow in.

What to do when i see a permanent tooth erupting before the baby tooth has fallen out?
You need to visit your dentist and get a examination done for your child. In some cases it may be advisable to remove the baby tooth to make way for the permanent one.

Nght time crying and morning sleep normal phenomenon for baby as in womb so she will take time to adapt to new environment. She does not need any medication for that. You can use pediculoryl thts safest drug fr sedation in babies but try not using it daily.

Merely interpreting the result cannot give a diagnosis and any idea you have to discuss the symptoms which made you do the test and all other details to give a correct opinion. The reports are fairly in normal range.
