My son is about four months old since two days he is doing potty two to three times a day, before that he sometimes does after two or three days or only once but since two days he is doing potty twice or thrice a day, I ate mango so I thought it might be due to that as he is in breast feed so I eat less mango now Is it something to worry should I take him to doctor.

If you bottle feed stop bottle and give breast and other feeds from a cup. Avoiding bottle. If he is breastfed alone the loose motion is harmless and children often pass more times normally.

My 2 years old starts coughing after drinking milk. It started around a few days ago that whenever he drinks milk he starts coughing. Is it just fine with little kids or is there anything to worry about?

Please suggest a substitute for mother's milk. My wife unable to produce sufficient milk for my son

Please suggest a substitute for mother's milk. My wife unable to produce sufficient milk for my son
Breast milk is best for the baby. Please consider if the milk is not enough or if it is just perceived to be not enough. A baby getting enough milk will sleep from 2-4 hours between feeds, generally passes 5-6 motions if under 2 months and 5-6 times urine per day. You can also get baby weighed to see if growth is adequate. If milk is not truly enough, you can use any of the popular brands of formula like nan pro, similac, enfamil etc.

Any cold medicine will not affect your breast feed, do not worry about that. Nowadays, cold is usually viral, so you can drink a lot of warm water and cetirizine if you have running nose.

Health Tip For Kids

Eating breakfast, even if it's just a banana and a glass of milk, kick-starts the body and makes it easier to maintain lasting energy throughout the day.

If you can get your kids to establish the habit of eating a good breakfast at a young age, it should stay with them as they get older.

Your schedule is definitely hectic. We usually advice our patients to have 8hrs night rest and 2hrs daytime rest. Try to have a break when you r in office. Baby growth is more when you r beyond 5th month pregnancy so growth is as such not a problem.

Except vitamin d. There is no need of any vitamin supplements in routine unless your doctor finds a deficiency of any1. Repeated cough cold could be a sign of allergy for which you shall undergo a detail check and it would not recover on it's own. So better to get behind it. Prevention - vaccinate against seasonal flu once the child is beyond 6 months age. Regards.

It is dangerous to stay with ayurveda alone in a child. He may have allergic rhinitis for which there are safe medicines in allopathy as I am treating many. If it is infective he will need a course of antibiotic initially. Take care.

Hello, as the child is walking with support then its not much to worry but do keep a track and start training slowly. Also vit d3 is needed for all kids so give baby that as advised to you. Let us know if any other concerns. Take care.
