You should get his liver function test & stool test for worms done. In case of abnormality, treatment will be on the basis of reports. All essential amino acids are not present in cereals alone. Therefore you should serve him daals both times, cows milk twice and fruits 2 to 3 times daily regularly.

My daughter is 8 months old and she having fever above 102f please suggest something?
Hello the most common cause of fever in this age is viral infection. Give her paracetamol in a dose of 10-15 mg/kg/dose whenever the temperature rises. Monitor fever pattern and appearance of any new symptoms like cough/cold/loose motion/urinary difficulty. If you notice any of these and if fever persists for more than 72 hours consult your pediatrician for evaluation. Regards.

In a 3 month old these are just normal and you take care to keep the area clean and distract her. She will just put anything in mouth and suck.

It is not advisable to suggest medicines without physical examination in such cases. your baby is under weight. It may be possible that she is suffering from UTI. It is advisable to consult either pediatrician or urologist.

Always make it a practice to encourage your children to inform you if they face any pain or discomfort in the neck or back before it becomes a serious problem.

Probably maxtra is trade name. Generic is convenient for proper advice. Anyway if maxtra is antibiotic, it has no role in Common cold n cough. U can instill saline nasal drop in each nostrils 3 to 4 times in a day n can give antihistamine.

Going Back to Work After Having a Baby

Going Back to Work After Having a Baby

Having a child is one of the most physically and emotionally trying situations that a couple will go through? This is especially true for a mother. The mother goes through a roller coaster of emotional and physical changes as well as other changes in her job and relationship. So, if you are going back to work after having a baby, read this article to gain some perspective!

  1. Deciding When: Timing is the first thing that matters in such cases. Remember to discuss this aspect with your partner and get some much needed advice from someone who will be sharing the child's responsibilities with you. Also, emotionally the mother has to be ready to leave the child for that duration in order to go to work and be productive. Feelings like guilt and helplessness may overwhelm you at first, but you have to have your coping mechanisms in place when it comes down to it.
  2. Coping Mechanisms: Speaking of coping mechanisms, let us discuss what all you can do to make a smooth transition from new mother to working mother. Finding support is crucial to begin with. The babysitter or family members who will be the caregiver for the child in those hours when you working, should be someone who you can trust implicitly. It may help to interview and spend time with a new nanny or babysitter before the child is born. This will help in setting a pace, understanding expectations and adjusting to each other even as you build trust. Another coping mechanism includes having someone you can talk to a friend, your parents, your spouse or a co worker. It can be anyone who will be willing to listen and offer you advice when you are feeling overwhelmed.
  3. Breastfeeding: If you do plan to continue breastfeeding your child, it would be best to discuss this with your boss or a counsellor at your place of work before you decide to get back to work. Ensure that you are given a separate room that is hygienic and well lit so that you can carry your breast pump and operate it there. Or, you can opt for day care within the office premises so that you can see your child and breastfeed him\her at regular intervals.

The choice of going back to work or staying at home after having a baby may not exactly be an easy one to make, but knowing your options and working your way around them with the right coping mechanisms and support can help you in gaining the right perspective that will help you focus on both areas with vigour and love. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Hi, my Sister went for an anomaly scan and the doctor said that the baby has "unossified nasal bone" We are really concerned and would like to know what are the chances of the baby having a down syndrome?

Hi, thank you for the question. The unossified nasal bone seen on a scan in second trimester of pregnancy is seen 6 times more commonly in fetuses with Down syndrome as compared to normal fetuses. This likelihood is not same when unossified nasal bone is seen in first trimester only, in case of which we repeat scan in second trimester. Considering that your sister went for an anomaly scan, I presume that she is in at least 18th week of her pregnancy and hence the second trimester. As a result of the above reason, it is definitely suggested for your sister to undergo confirmatory testing for Down syndrome by Amniocentesis and fetal Karyotype. At the same time, it is not necessary that a fetus with unossified nasal bone definitely has Down syndrome. Hence, no decision should be taken without confirmatory testing.

Gradually increase the diet of the baby so that by the age of 1 year he should start eating everything in your family diet and that too almost half of his father's daily diet.
