I think child is having nephrotic syndrome. If it occurs between 1 to 8 years it responds to treatment. As the age is less than 1 year it may need a renal biopsy.

Nebulisation is a method of delivering drug directly to the lungs in an emergency situation. If your doctor feels that it is a must then you must go for that as it has no long term effect.

Serve food in smaller portions. Do not demand or reward “a clean plate.” Let your child ask for more if he or she is still hungry.

Any seasonal fruits n good nourishing diet including milk and its products prepared at home can be given any time as per desire of child. Colic child, probably you mean he had frequently pain in abdomen. If so that doesn't matter.

Today my 6 week old child was administered pentaxim vaccine's first dose but I have read that this vaccine is banned by Indian govt and its efficacy reduces in few years. It's mentioned that better to administer quadravac along with polio but they are not painless. Kindly suggest.

Pediatrician, Delhi
Pentaxim is not banned by govt. Pentaxim is also a good vaccine, we prefer Pentaxim in those child where there is risk of complications because of quadravac.

With 16 kg at 3 yours of age,immunity is not the issue. Most likely recurrent infection caused by bottle feeding,thumb sucking,candies is the culprit. Proper hygeine care will reduce sufferings.

Hello, Warm water bath can surely be given. But feeding water before 6 months of age can lead to various infections in the baby. Mother milk has enough water vo tent in it ro prevent dehydration. Water is the major source of infection for any age group.

यदि बच्चे का वजन आयु के अनुसार है तो दूध काफी है। फिर भी डेयरी दूध या इस से बनी पतली सुजी खीर दे सकती है।

Can numerous fibroids and an enlarged uterus cause bladder prolapse? Why does my gynecologist think my bladder bulging into my vaginal canal is a fibroid even after I was sent to a urologist for stress incontinence issues?

MBBS, MS, DNB
Pediatrician, Delhi
Yes enlarged fibroids can cause bladder prolapse. It is more due to lax ligaments. Best way to know is get an ultrasound done and hve 2 nd opinion from other gynaecologist.

Little children can`t differentiate in between day and night you need to get him to develop habbit. Darken the room at particular time every day, switch off tv, put away mobile phone and sleep with baby. Gradually the child will learn.
