Please try to avoid medicine use without doctor advice. Bowel movements 3-4 times per day in a 2 month old is very normal if consistency is not watery, if child is passing urine 5-6 / day should not make you worry.

You have not mentioned his age. If his weight is about 11 kg. You need not to worry. Give him all well cooked nutritious diet at home of his choice including about 125 gm milk 2 times in a day, fruits, vegetables etc. Then there shall not be any need of supplement diet. I think with is diet all his problem is solved.

Split is called regurgitation, which occurs due to swallowing of air by baby during feeding. It is normal.

General Physician,
These movements, known as tics and twitches, often affect the eyelids or face. They can, though, occur anywhere in the body. In most instances, tics and twitches are harmless and temporary. In some cases, though, they may be caused by a tic disorder. A neurologist can help

12 BREAST FEEDING FACTS EVERY MOTHER SHOULD KNOW

Breast feeding should be started within the first 30-60 minutes of birth.

The thick yellow initial secretion (Colostrum) should not be discarded as it is rich proteins, vitamin A, prevents the development of allergies, and contains antibodies that protect the baby from infections.

The newborn should not be given honey, water or any other fluid other than the breast milkBaby should be breast fed on demand every 2-3 hours devoting 10-15 minutes to each breast.

Baby should be properly latched to the breast. Part of the areolar (the black area behind the nipple) should be in his mouth.The baby should be exclusively breast feed for at least 6 months.

Breast feeding helps in better mental development of the babyIt reduces risk of ear infections, chest infections, diabetes and skin rashesIt helps in strong bonding between mother and childIt leads to lesser pain and bleeding after delivery.

It helps the mother in losing weight fast.Breast feeding protects the mother against breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

It’s Breast Feeding week, so share these facts with your friends and family.

Hi, welcome to lybrate fever for more than 5days -a week is not a simple one. It may be serious one. Your child needs to be examined thoroughly and some blood tests need to be done if needed after examination. Please consult a pediatrician immediately.
