Inability to speak may be due to various reasons. She needs to be investigated thoroughly to know the cause. It could be related to cochlear abnormality or poor development of brain; needs assessment for the same.

I saw your query regarding feeds to a baby 8 month old, first of all at 8 months old age, he's just trying to accommodate with a new environment as thermostatic centres in the brain are yet to develop so while feeding them you must concentrate on more and more liquid constitution of feeds than solid. Also try to maintain their hydration to avoid fluid deficit because of overheating. Expecting at this age you must have started weaning already, consider calorie requirement as per age along with hydration of the baby.

My child has toothache, he is 6 years. What can i do?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician,
It's usually due to cavity which is the result of excessive consumption sweet sticky items like biscuits, chocolate etc. Cavity has to be promptly filled up by a pedodontist. Show to him. Practice twice daily brushing with a fluorinated tooth paste.

U can use any of these. But more important is diet modification. .give diet rich in iron like green vegetables, jaggary, pulses fruits rich in iron. U should also look for reason of low haemoglobin. .For that you can take opinion from paediatrician.

Pentavalent vaccine causes local reactions like pain and swelling at the site of injection which usually lasts for 48 hours. You can show to your doctor if doesn't reduce.

Use olive oil after bathe on wet skin or few drops can be added to the bath tub. Use good moisturising lotion within 5 minutes after bath. Add half a spoon of cows ghee to his food daily.

7 Things First Time Parents Must Remember

7 Things First Time Parents Must Remember

Having a baby is a beautiful experience and it is important for first time parents to learn the ropes of taking care of a newborn. A mother should consider getting help after the birth of the child as that particular time period can be overwhelming and hectic to take care of the baby all alone. You can get started by nursing your child by taking assistance from specialists and nurses who tell you how to change the clothes of the baby, hold the baby and how to take care of your baby.

How to take care of a newborn
You can hire a maid who can help you look after your baby. If you have relatives, you can request them to help you out. It is important to keep the following things in mind while taking care of a baby.

  1. Babies are susceptible to infection quickly and hence it is necessary that we wash our hands properly with a hand sanitiser before carrying the baby.
  2. Make sure you carry the baby properly by providing the infant with proper support below the neck and head. The same rules apply while laying the baby down in the cradle.
  3. Do not shake the baby vigorously, even by mistake, as it can cause bleeding in the brain of the baby, which can cause death.
  4. Any member of the household should not throw the baby in the air or try any rough play as a newborn baby is not ready for it.
  5. Sponge bath should be given to the baby until the umbilical cord falls off and only after the navel heals totally. It can take about 1–4 weeks for this to happen.
  6. It is very vital that you use clean diapers for your baby, and if the diaper is wet, it must be removed immediately to avoid any rash in and around the genital area. It is important that the genital area is cleaned well by the use of cotton balls and water.
  7. In case you are using cloth diapers, then it is advisable that you clean it with detergents that are fragrance free.

If she has started passing green stool after yellowish stool for 1-2 weeks, which is unlikely, consult pediatrician, otherwise it is normal. Put her on breast milk

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.

Wait, breast-feeding will regain and start putting on weight. If treating pediatrician is confident, you need not worry. All babies lose weight initially, though your child seems to have lost more weight than expected. Follow your pediatrician, don't worry.

No special food will increase breasmilk. You meat nutritious foods and drink lot of water. Only suckling the baby and positive attitude towards breastfeeding is sufficient. Sleep pattern slowly change to nocturnal pattern. You shouldn't give any sedative.
