Iugr babies usually will have good catch up growth. Children usually don't eat well during 2nd year. Give for worms and any multi vitamin preparation.

I have a baby boy of 3 months old. I have given him the first dose of painless vaccine pentaxim. Is pentaxim safe and effective for my baby? Should I give him the second dose or should I give the painful regular vaccine?

Its totally your choice , though the Indian academy of pediatrics recommend giving painful vaccine, but neither WHO or center for Disease control say that painful is better then painless. so i suggest you to go for whatever you are comfortable with.

Greetings. My daughter is 3.5 months old and my wife is 30 years old. Lately, it seems our baby is not getting enough milk from her mother so as per my mom's advise, we mixed half boiled water in equal amount of cow's milk and tried spoon feeding her in a steel vessel. However, my baby is not drinking that spoon needed milk as she has a habit keeping her tongue out. Due to this, she is crying (not frequent though), usually she cries only when she wants to sleep. My mom says we shouldn't feed baby with nipple bottle as it is not good for teeth and hygiene issues are their too. I request expert pediatrician or any doctor who can comment on my below questions. 1. What can we do in this case so baby's hunger gets satisfied completely? I mean what ideally we should do? 2. For how many hours out of 24 hours, a baby sleeps which is less than 6 months old? Any suggestions are highly appreciated, thank you in advance.

This is my personal experience as I have a 1.4 years old baby.. My wife also didn't had proper milk... and it is a very frequent situation... You may give Lactogen power.. it is very safe and good..my baby is healthy as any other and the powder is almost equal to the mothers milk in the nutritive value.. As per my knowledge it is not advisable to give cow's milk in early years of life... And you may give her milk through nipple and it does not have any effect on teeth... as it is same as mother's nipple... Again about hygien then you may sterilize with boiling water everytime you want to give milk... For more you may consult and i will guide you...

It dependson a lot of factors and difficult to give a generalised advice. Definitely the baby needs attention and for good family relation you have to attend the party also. You can divert time for both, like go after consulting or come early enough for the consultation. This needs individualised decision between two of you.

Finger brushes like these are made of soft silicone rubber. They are effective in maintaining oral hygiene of babies between 6 months of age till the first birthday. At first Birthday, change to a 'Baby brush.
Start early. Let your baby grow up cavity-free.
