Along with breast milk you can give homemade semi solids like khichdi, mashed banana, egg yolk. I can suggest better (local foods prepared at home) . You can ask me privately to advise you regularly as your personal doctor.

My baby is 15 days old and I am breast feeding on time some times he cries. He didn't go loo from two days. Can you advice. Please to improve milk.

Newborns take time to adjust their stool habits. It is absolutely normal for a newborn if he passes stool 6-8 times a day or he doesn't pass for three days. Any thing else needs some evaluation. Mothers feed is ideal for the baby kindly continue.

Along with medications, the affected area should be kept clean and dry and also clothes should be treated with dettol and hot water. This will not cause reinfection.

As long as there is only sweating on fore head need not to worry. As baby has sweat gland active on fore head only 1. Feed your baby in a cool area with comfortable temperature 2. Do not over dress the baby, just put one extra layer of clothes what we put. 3. Put cotton/ woolen clothes not synthetic 4. Watch for other symptoms - like fast heart rate, breathlessness, failure to gain weight, cough, blue colour over skin contact on private for further advise if required.

10 Tips to Tackle Sibling Rivalry

10 Tips to Tackle Sibling Rivalry

While siblings are the force that breathes life into any family structure, it has also been seen as a challenge of sorts to manage siblings and bring out the best in each one of them. In any family unit, there are a number of entities who need to be nurtured in a certain way to ensure that their identities are not hampered by a "one size fits all" style of parenting. Every child is different and will need to be handled differently. Besides this, there are other related challenges that will contribute to the quality of the relationships between the siblings, as well as the rivalry that they may feel towards each other when it comes to attention, achievements and varied other factors.

Read on to know the ten tips to tackle sibling rivalry:

  1. Make Friends before Birth: encourage your first born to connect even before the birth of the new baby by including him or her in the changes you see and feel. Planning for the new baby with your first born will also help in such cases.
  2. Staying positive is a big factor that will help the children in feeling confident despite their different qualities and strengths.
  3. Comparison is a big no no. Stay away from these kind of comparisons so that the children do not feel like they have to fight with each other for your praise.
  4. Time Sharing: Ensure that you divide your time well and indulge each child in his or her area of interest so that they feel like you are always there for each of them.
  5. Harmonious Start to the day: this will ensure that the children have a special bond at the end of the day. Make sure that they help each other and divide chores accordingly. The older siblings should be given the care giving tasks while the younger ones should be taught to obey them and play along.
  6. Humour them: It is a known fact that humour is the best medicine that breaks even the most tension filled atmosphere.
  7. Family Meetings: Hold family meetings to discuss important things and even intense fights so that everyone's needs and issues are addressed.
  8. Empathy: Teaching your child to empathize with others will help him or her steer clear of needless rivalry at home too.
  9. Ignore the Small: Let them figure out the smaller fights, yet always be there to address the bigger issues so that they know you are there for them.
  10. Equal Treatment: Treating them equally does not mean doing the same thing for each of them. It means giving them equal time and attention with personalized treatment to suit varied temperaments. This will also give them a lot of individual confidence which eventually kills any feelings of rivalry.

Foods like peanuts, whole grapes, cherry tomatoes, carrots, hot dogs, meat sticks, or hard candies should be kept away from toddlers as they may have problem in chewing them. Give them mashed, cut and easily chewable food.

Have you done eeg test then send the report to me. Ulcers during fever are due to virus that caused fever.(exanthematous fever). If eeg is normal why valparin was given at all for simple febrile seizure? I do not understand.

My daughter is 3 years old. Problem is she is very mischievous not listening to anyone. I now have a younger son who is just born. She sometimes try to hurt son. Also she sleeps very late at night sometimes viewing you tube kids videos. Should I consult a child psychiatrist for any medication?

This seems to be a normal sibling reaction after arrival of second child. The child is to be kept prepared for arrival of newborn. Anyway just extend your love & affection to her as usual without any hesitation, talk to her a lot, give her time & make her feel she is equally impotantant to you & newborn has come to give her company.

My child of 6 years is not putting on weight for the last 3 years or so. His appetite is ok but suffers from allergy and respiratory problems from time to time . He is active however but will like him to add some kilos .

Average weight of child at 6 year is about 20 kg. If your son is around of this you need not to worry since he is active. You may increase some oily and protein in diet. Otherwise it is better to leave him on his own choice of nutritious diet. If he is suffering respiratory problem, consult doctor who after assessing his problem, he may advise if respiratory problem is to do any thing with his weight gain.

Occasionally 2-3 time small bouts of coughing in a day or coughing after feeding is normal. It may be because to irritation due to some milk or normal secretion in thraot. Its a normal reflex coughing. Continus large bouts of coughing with cold or fever or other symptom you should give prescribed medicine or consult pediatrician.
