My son is just 38 days old. He cries often due to hunger. I am on breastfeeding. Some of ma relatives are telling he is not getting enough milk. Also he s looking so lean. I am feeling guilty that I can't produce enough milk. My nipples are too sore. I am using breast shield to feed him. He latches well on the shield. Please suggest what should be done for increasing the milk flow.

Use nipcare on sore nipples after every feed which you can wipe off with a wet cotton before every feed baby should not be sucking on the nipples, he should be sucking on areola at the rim of the black portion on the breast. To increase the milk flow do the following: take proper diet, adequate water and at least 1l of milk or milk products everyday take proper rest and remain calm and stress free you can take lactonic granules one teaspoon twice a day with milk for 2 weeks and tab perinorm one tab three times a day for one week on demand breast feeding to your baby.

My grand son completed 4 months but sleeps for 5 hours in night and during day two to three hour. D. Whether it is ok.

MBBS, DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
Ideally at this age, he should be sleeping much longer. But there are individual variations and this may well be accepted. Your grandson's history need to be examined in order to comment well.

My 5.5 month old son has developed flat head on back side. Please tell some remedy to correct the shape of his head. I am very worried.

Hi There is no need to worry at all. You need to use a pillow for him that will help to get a proper shape. Usually a simple small pillow is enough. You can also use the traditional pillow prepared by filling mustard seeds instead of cotton. It also helps. No medication is needed for this as such. If it persists even after 3 months of using the pillow then contact me.

When child is hungry, he shall definitely like to eat but of his own choice rather yours. It is just possible that you may be forcing your choice. Give him all edible well nutritious items prepared at home of his choice including milk and its products. Sucking of fingers must have started at his early age for the reason he may have not been given food of his choice and kept hungry. I hope this may help.

You need to give plenty of ors, and revisit your pediatric doctor. Diarrhoea can cause dehydration which may be life threatening if not addressed.

With so many symptoms it is better to show a neuro pediatrician at least once. And have to talk frankly about long term effect of it. Schooling, mental behaviour is also to be talked out. Need not to be visit frequently to other Dr. Once you are satisfied.

Can I use otrinoz. 025% baby nasal drops for my 2 moths old baby having weight 3. 8kg and if yes please confirm about the dosage.

Pediatrician,
Don' t use any drops, it will cause mucosal damage if used repeatedly. If child is taking breast feeds at night, his nose is not blocked.

If you have not yet started weaning, do it now to start with semi solids nutritious with added ghee n dairy milk with spoon not bottle. Continue breastfeeding. Watch for green stool to change its colour. Expected wt at this age is about 8 kg.

Give lactose free milk. It is not curable. Pls bear with it. Some time cows milk ingested by breast feeding mother may produce lactose intolerance like symptoms in infant which is due to cows milk allergy and baby gets relieved if mother stop taking cows milk.
